Cycle to Banteay Srei
Pedal through Khmer villages to the remote temple of Banteay Srei, visiting Ta Prohm temple – engulfed in old growth forest – along the way.

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.
