Siem Reap Tour- Off the Beaten Track
About this tour
Our popular half-day bicycle tour is catered for cyclists who wish to experience Siem Reap beyond its temples and numerous tourist attractions. On this tour, your guides will take you off the beaten track to local villages of Siem Reap; get to know friendly villagers and children getting about their day to day lives, and enjoy the beautiful landscape of Siem Reap’s countryside.
Stop 1: Local Market
Our first stop will be at a bustling local market, where you will be able to take in the sights and sounds of locals buying and selling produce. Discover local products not found anywhere else in the world.
Stop 2: Paddy Fields
Our tour begins with a bike ride to Siem Reap’s sprawling paddy fields, where your guides will introduce you to the day-to-day routines of local farmers. Many of our guides will be able to give you an in-depth insight into this agricultural activity, having worked in the fields with their parents from a young age.
Stop 3: Homemade Basket
On our next stop, we will take you to view handmade baskets woven by our local villagers. Get to know our weavers and learn more about this intricate craft, which is traditionally passed down from parent to child.
Stop 4: Rice Wine
We will take you to a local rice wine distillery. Here, you will learn more about the processes involved in the making of rice wine as well as its use in holistic medicine. And yes—if you’re wondering—you will also get to sample a taste!
Stop 5: Piggy Bank
On our final stop, we will visit a family who makes a living by using the clay. Actually, it's a handmade business which is pottery. They make hallow clay animals as a bank for saving the little money of the kids in the countryside. It's well-known as a Piggy Bank.
