Inside Asia Tours: Vietnam, Cambodia & Laos

Biking The Islands Of Phnom Penh

Escape from the modern buzz of Phnom Penh with a leisurely bike ride on laid-back river islands.

Phnom Penh is an extremely lively city, and a stark contrast to most of rural Cambodia. Staying in the capital you will be forgiven to think that the city is without limits. However by taking a short ferry ride across the Mekong River, you are transported into the countryside, surrounded by rice paddies, dirt roads and picturesque wooden stilted villages untouched by time.

This is a place few tourists venture yet it offers ample opportunity to learn about Cambodian culture. Hopping on two wheels is the best way of experiencing this serene environment, to see traditional ways of life in the countryside and stop to chat with friendly locals on the way. Pedal along quiet lanes to see the island's lush farmland and charming villages, stopping at picturesque pagodas and local houses where you can witness the creation of beautiful silk scarves, a specialty of these peaceful islands.
