Bicycle Ride along the Siem Reap River

by Samuel on April 12, 2013

On our last day in Siem Reap, Cambodia we woke up early to go on a bicycle ride around town, specifically exploring along Siem Reap River covering both the scenic city area on the right hand side and the rural countryside on the left. Paying just $1 each to rent bikes from our guest house, we hopped on the rickety old bicycles trying to beat the heat and humidity early in the morning. We first passed Temple Garden where we were politely told to get off of bikes and walk. We then hit Siem Reap river where we continued our journey passing inanimate statues of elephants and other animals while encountering a dead rat, Khmer men sleeping on benches and some locals fishing and splashing in the river. Once we crossed the covered bridge we were on the rural side of the city. The Khmer locals were very warm and friendly to us waving and saying hello. As the only foreigners in the area they seemed surprised to see us pedaling alongside them so early in the morning. Overall, it was a great way for us to spend our last morning in Siem Reap and we’d highly recommend it to you as well.
