Local Livelihood Half Day Bike Tour in Battambang
From US$32.00
Overview
Ride a bike in Battambang’s scenic countryside on a half-day bike tour that explores traditional Cambodian products. You’ll meet local families where they live and work, getting a glimpse of Cambodia’s authentic culture, and visit a moving memorial site to victims of the Khmer Rouge. Mountain bike rental, drinks, and snacks are included in this Battambang bike tour, which is led by a local student getting vocational training.
What to Expect
Meet a guide at your hotel, then start the day with a welcome drink at a local café, learn a few Khmer phrases, and go over the basics of bike safety.

As you ride, make a series of stops at local family houses to learn about some of the products they make, such as rice paper, dried banana, bamboo sticky rice, fish paste, and rice wine. Pause at a traditional house for a snack of fresh fruit and coconuts, all while learning what life is like in the villages you pass.

Throughout the tour, take advantage of your time with a local university student guide to ask questions about Cambodian culture or history; the guide might also share some personal insights with the group. The final stop is a memorial to the victims of the Khmer Rouge, then you’ll finish the ride at a central location in Battambang.

Great day

Amazing insight into the lives of locals. Easy ride. Very hot but lots of stops and the wind in your hair is lovely.

Really get to know the character and culture of Battambang iteself.

It was absolutely amazing to spend time with Monei and his unique perspective of life in Cambodia and the culture. Very educational and eye opening to spend time with the various families, their workspace and homes. Absolutely worth it!
