Angkor Wat & Bayon Temple Cycling (20km) ( USD19 Per Person )
Welcome by our supportive crews at your hotel, and transfer to the Check Point for a quick photo to purchase Angkor pass. Then we do the bike fitting and tour briefing and start cycling towards the magnificent 12th century Angkor Wat. It is visually, architecturally and artistically breathtaking. Angkor Wat is a massive three-tiered pyramid crowned by five beehive-like towers rising 65 meters from ground level. Suryavarman II constructed – Angkor Wat in the form of massive ‘temple mountain’ dedicated to the Hindu god, Vishnu.
There we continue the cycling through the adorable jungle trails and stop at Bayon temple and start the visit (45 minutes-1 hour). Angkor Thom built by Cambodia’s great king, Jayavarman VII. An eight-meter high wall encloses this ten square kilometer city, which is encircled by a moat. The famous Bayon, in the geographical heart of Angkor Thom, is a remarkable 54 tower temple. Initially the temple appears to be a shapeless mass of grey and brown stone, but it is only as you get closer that you realize every tower has the carved face of Avalokiteshvara on it.
After the visit, we cycle to the West Gate of Angkor Thom and end our great day there. Say goodbye to your supportive crews!
