(No availability) 13 Day Temple Raider Guided Motorcycle Tour in Cambodia

Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Stunning Cambodia Motorcycle Tour

The original Cambodia off-road tour truly is an itinerary that has stood the test of time like the very temples of Angkor on it. Delivering an experience that really is a journey of discovery for so many riders over the past 16 years, it still never fails to remain in the memories of riders long after they have left their adventure behind them. Gradually becoming more frequented by tourists with the advance in infrastructure and sealed roads making the long tourist bus journeys more feasible, this itinerary is still one of Cambodia Expeditions' proudest and most cultural. You'll be the envy of most Cambodians, let alone tourists, as, by the time you reach the final destination Siem Reap, home to the legendary Angkor Wat, you will have taken in their most ancient, massive, and truly stunning architectural gems hidden in the depths of this rain-forested land.

Accommodation

The accommodation you can expect on this tour is mid-range. Please bear in mind that Cambodia has only really had a tourism industry for 17 years and some mid-range options are rather more rudimentary than you might expect in the West.

Program

This is a Cambodia Expeditions classic tour. The Temple Raider was inspired by the moderately famous Angelina Jolie and her role as Lara Croft. Famously, one of Cambodia’s hidden jungle temples, Tha Phrom, in Angkor City, featured in her 2001 movie, Tomb Raider, and through extensive experience in-country, Cambodia Expeditions devised a bike adventure that took in the most impressive, and less traveled temples that Cambodia has to offer. Real beauties, that were inaccessible to anyone except on foot or dirt bikes.
