Cambodia, Phnom Penh and The South
Info : Oudong Escape, Full Day Cycle Tour
The former Cambodian capital, Oudong is now an area of great agricultural importance with a fascinating history. Ride your bike along breathtaking country trails with Khmer temples and other historical architectural examples scattered along the hillsides. Sienna roads of dirt lead through lovely country landscapes, with tiny villages, rolling green hills, orchards, and sprawling rice paddies marking your way.
Visit the stunning Khmer Temple of the Heavens, where a climb up the stairway leads to a wonderful panoramic view from the temple grounds. Witness everyday life as you ride past a local school, and take in the prickly palm trees and tranquil lakes scattered with lotus and lilies. The 40km ride takes a full day, and the pace is relaxed, determined by the collective strength of the riders.
Of course Angkor Wat and temples are out of this world and Nokia our young guide was very informative and considerate enough to find us shade occasionally and to rest. He was the youngest in a rice farming family, longing to find himself a lady to settle down.
