Bangkok to Angkor 8 Days/ 7 Nights
The trip will start in Bangkok and the meeting point is Grand President Hotel: http://www。grandpresident。com/ located in the city center in Sukhumvit area。 People who join this trip can also stay at their own hotel choice in Bangkok but it will take a bit longer for our guide to pick up due to bad traffic in Bangkok in the morning。 Then transfer to the starting point near Rayong where mountain bikes are prepared and the guide will brief on the cycling tour。 From the border to Pailin, the road is dirt with some potholes as well as from Pailin to Battambang。 From Battambang to Siem Reap, we will cross Tonle Sap lake by boat。
We ride about 375 km mostly on asphalt roads and sometimes broken road or vehicle-width dirt roads, which may be smooth, gritty, stony, rocky, rutted, loose or hard-packed. The 85km from Pailin to Battambang is probably the worst road but still interesting things to see along the road.
江苏快3Crossing from Thailand to Cambodia on bicycle is really a great experience where you will see the differences。 Entering to the former Khmer Rouge stronghold in Pailin reminds the past bad experience of Cambodia and seeing the change they have now and the Angkor historical complex on the back road。 This trip can be combined with Southern Adventure。
