Discover Cambodia on Two Wheels (the e-asy way!)
By: Bamboo Travel
To overcome this challenge, Bamboo Travel has accessed the first fleet of next-generation electric bikes in Cambodia for their clients to explore the Temples of Angkor.
These Giant E+1 bikes are dual-powered using regular pedals, and boosted by an electric motor in the bottom bracket that maintains speed and helps on ascents – making you feel like you have Chris Hoy's leg strength!
This two-wheeled experience takes you from Siem Reap to Angkor on the back roads and jungle paths to experience a selection of the quieter temples and secret locations without the crowds.
The e-bike tour of the temples can be added to several existing itineraries including the popular 11-day 'Highlights of Cambodia'. The itinerary starts with two nights in Phnom Penh – with a private city tour – followed by two nights in a boutique hotel at Battambang, stopping at the ancient capital Udong en route.
Other highlights of the trip which is the perfect introduction to Cambodia include the temples of Sambor Pre-Kuk, a private boat trip across Lake Tonle Sap, a drive to Siem Reap via Sambor Prei Kuk, a full-day e-bike tour of Angkor Wat & Bayon, plus tours of Preah Khan, Banteay Srei and Ta Prohm.
There is also an option to extend the stay with some days on the beach.
The holiday can depart any day of the week and costs from £2295 per person (two sharing a room) including international flights (Thai Airways), eight-nights' B&B, all road transportation and tours on a private basis and private English-speaking guides.
