Start your visit to Ta Prohm temple, built in the mid-12th to early 13th centuries, intentionally left with impressive old-growth forest. This gives the temple a mystical air and around every corner there are seemingly endless photo opportunties. From here, cycle to the “gem” of the Angkor area, the intricate temple of Banteay Srei.

Banteay Srei, also known as the Ladies’ Temple, has some of the finest displays of carvings in all of Cambodia. The carvings here are said to be so delicate that only a lady could have carved them. The cycling route to the temple takes guests past beautifully lush scenery of rice fields and sugar palms and through small Khmer villages and is often the highlight for many cyclists.
