Tips for cycling in Cambodia
February 27, 2017
Cambodia is a small country in South East Asia, attracting a lot of visitors thanks to relics of Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom, the great natural beauty of Mekong River and beautiful islands like Sihanoukville, Koh Rong, Koh Thmei. Traveling in Cambodia is a great experience for both tourists who love to explore the ruins of the past and those who are fascinated by the wild beauty of creation.
There are many ways to get around Cambodia. You can choose bus which is still an affordable option to travel between major cities. But if you want to enjoy truly local culture, cycling in Cambodia is a great idea. A cycling tour inside Cambodia often lasts 13 days. Based on preferred travel style (adventurous or classic), you can decide what type of tour you may want to join. Here are some few tips to make your cycling tour in Cambodia much more relieved:
  • You’re expected to ride about 500 kilometers in a cycling tour inside Cambodia so your health needs to be fully charged in advance. Make sure that you always ride in groups because it will be safer in jungle where still has wild animals or even in city where the traffics are very chaotic. You will feel you’re swimming in the ocean; therefore, riding in group will be able to prevent you from getting lost in crowd.
  • Make sure that you always follow the traffic signs. This is very essential in every country because once you respect local laws, you can enjoy your trip more.
  • Go – stop – go – stop, please don’t do this on the road. The traffic load are very high. Please be confident when you across the road, it will be safer for you and other people.
  • Try to support the little road side shops if you can where they sell canned drink because most of these families are poor and if you can support them, this means that you’re making their life better.
  •  Prepare essential tools before you go in case your bike is broken on the road. It will be hard to find spare parts of your bicycle in small towns. Your cycling tour will be complete if your bike has no troubles on the road. You can also help your team mates when their bikes have any issues.
  • You should visit Cambodia from November to February because of cool weather during this period and you won’t meet a lot of rains, which makes your ride more smooth and convenient.
