Cycling in Cambodia takes you back to a time when the Khmer Empire was site of the most impressive complex on earth. Almost a thousand years ago, when there were only 50,000 inhabitants in London, there were some 3,000,000 million in and around the temples of Angkor..
It is so large and impressive that it is hard to wrap your mind around its scale. It is also hard to wrap your mind around the horrors of the Khmer Rouge regime that took over shortly after the Vietnam War. We visit the The Killing Fields and Tuol Sleng Prison. Uncomfortable as it may be, a visit to these sites is something that everyone on the planet would be well-served to make.
Unlike our other tours, there is not much climbing in Cambodia. Most of it is flat, flat, flat. As much as possible, we stick to the back roads where you contend with carts pulled by water buffaloes and bikes loaded with coconuts more than any fast moving vehicles It is the real Cambodia. Accommodations are very good in larger towns and resorts of Cambodia. The popularity of Angkor Wat has seen to that. In the smaller towns, there are more basic, but clean guesthouses.
