Accommodation

During this tour, you will stay overnight at various accommodations along the route including a five-star hotel, hotels with a pool, a guesthouse, a riverside hotel with a pool, and a homestay style guesthouse in a quality twin-share room. Ride Expeditions uses excellent quality accommodations where they are available. In the smaller towns and villages, you will stay in the best available accommodation. Please be aware that this can sometimes be quite basic but that is all part of the experience.

Ride Expeditions promotes bullying of those that sit on your phones too much. If you are caught on Facebook at the dinner table, it is an instant 5 USD fine that goes towards that night's drinks bill. Despite what you might expect, the internet and mobile coverage across Cambodia is excellent. There is only one overnight location on this tour where Wi-Fi might not be available. Even here, your guides will have 3g coverage on their mobiles, so you can always hotspot if it is important.

Program

The highly capable Kawasaki KLX300 is the standard inclusion. For the more experienced rider, Ride Expeditions has the Yamaha WR450F as an upgrade option. All bikes are 2013+ fuel injection models with appropriate modifications. A western medic will be riding with the group. He carries an extensive trauma kit with him on the bike and has a larger medical kit in the support vehicle. The support crew in this trip will be professional local guides or mechanics and a support vehicle to carry your luggage, spare parts, and a spare motorcycle.

The terrain is mostly off-road with a huge variety of riding terrain available, from tight jungle singletrack to fast open sandy tracks. Average daily ride hours will be from five to eight hours with plenty of drink and photo stops. Ride Expeditions requires a 500 GBP security to be held on your card. Alternatively, they can offer their own damage insurance which costs 115 GBP for Kawasaki KLX300 and 132 GBP for Yamaha WR450F. This tour is not suitable for pillion riders.

Itinerary

Day 1: Welcome to Cambodia

You will be greeted by your tour leader in the morning. He will have arranged for a local guide to take you around the ancient temples of Angkor. You will visit Angkor Wat, Bayon, and Ta Prohm. If this is your first visit to Cambodia, these ancient sites will blow your mind.

Later that afternoon, you will be given a full tour briefing at the hotel, where you will meet the rest of the support team and your trusty steeds that will now be neatly lined up outside the front of your hotel. In the evening, you will all enjoy a welcome dinner where you will all get to know each better over a traditional Khmer dinner. Included meals are a lunch and a dinner.

Day 2: Siem Reap - Battambang (185 kilometers / 115 miles)

Leaving the city behind, you will head west towards the Thai border. You will ride a variety of dirt roads, tarmac, and winding trails as you ride alongside rivers and through tiny Cambodia villages. You will meet with your support vehicle for a western style picnic lunch before cutting the corner of the Tonle Sap lake and continuing to the old French colonial town of Battambang. You may even have the chance to sample some of the local rice paddy rats at one of the roadside barbecues. You will have a breakfast, a lunch, and a dinner today.

Day 3: Battambang - Pramaouy (175 kilometers / 109 miles)

You have got some awesome trail riding today, from fast-paced dirt roads, muddy sections in the sticky land, steep rocky hills, river crossings, and winding dirt roads that climb up in the Cardamom Mountains providing breathtaking views across the hills. You will stay in the tiny mountain town Pramaouy. Your dinner will be a massive barbecue feast at the guesthouse. But first, you can try to pop the next door for a couple of cold beers and a spot of volleyball with the locals. All meals are included.

Day 4: Pramaouy - Koh Kong (175 kilometers / 109 miles)

The day kicks off with a stunning dirt road that winds up and down through the hills and a water crossing on tiny wooden rafts. Then, you will ride into the jungle. Tight singletrack, creek crossings, rocky hills, and possibly fallen trees to duck under or carry over. Your support vehicle will be waiting at the end of the trail with some much needed refreshments.

After the lunch, you will pay a quick visit to a waterfall before cruising down and out of the mountains on a mix of exhilarating dirt and concrete roads. Tonight’s destination is Koh Kong, a riverside town close to the Thai border. You will enjoy a dinner at a restaurant on the river. Included meals will be a breakfast, a lunch, and a dinner.

Day 5: Koh Kong rest day

A non-riding day gives your muscles the chance to recover before the next leg of the journey. You will have a private boat pick us up from your hotel and cruise us up the beautiful river. Your local guide will prepare a huge barbecue lunch on the rocks as you do a spot of fishing or swim in the clear waters. You will also take a couple of kayaks with Ride Expeditions should you want to go for a paddle.

You will arrive back at your hotel late afternoon. The evening is spent at your leisure. You will be served a breakfast and a lunch while your dinner will be at your own expense.

Day 6: Koh Kong - Chiphat (130 kilometers / 81 miles)

Today you will have a difficult option and an easy option. The harder route tackles the old smugglers trail including steep and technical rocky hills, lots of quirky bridges, river crossings, bamboo jungle, and some really fun single track trails. The easy route sticks to the beautiful smooth roads that wind through the mountains, visiting the impressive Tatai waterfall along the way. Late afternoon, you will take cold beers down to the river or rapids for a swim. All meals are included.

Day 7: Chiphat - Sihanoukville (160 kilometers / 99 miles)

You will cross the river out of Chiphat on small wooden boats in the morning and ride the dirt roads through the hills of sugarcane. You then have some fun open sandy trails that lead into the jungle. You will have a lunch at Kbal Chay waterfall before continuing on jungle trails through to Sihanoukville where you will finish the tour with celebratory sunset beers on the beach. You will enjoy a farewell dinner at an excellent Khmer restaurant. All meals are included.

Motorcycles

Kawasaki KLX 250 or 300

Ride Expeditions uses the new fuel injected (2013+) models of the ever faithful Kawasaki KLX250, most of which they bore out to 300 cubic centimeters to improve the performance. All of these bikes have been modified with strong handlebars, hand guards, performance exhausts, and fuel controllers or engine control units (ECU’s). This machine is the perfect trail bike to reliably and comfortably take you on an adventure of Cambodia.

Yamaha WR450F

If you are looking for a powerhouse trail bike, it does not get much better than the awesome Yamaha WR450F. Equipped with an astonishingly powerful yet usable motor, the fuel-injected Yamaha has legions of fans all over the world from Brisbane to Baja. For Cambodian tours, the WRF makes light work of the sweeping dirt roads but is precise and controllable in the deep jungle trails, just right for the more experienced off-road rider.

Included excursions

During this holiday, you will visit the ancient temples of Angkor Wat, a UNESCO world heritage site, Bayon, Ta Prohm, and the old French colonial town of Battambang and take a boat trip on a beautiful river for a massive barbecue and a spot of fishing.

Location

The tour will take place in Siem Reap, Battambang, Pramaouy, Koh Kong, Chi-Phat, and Sihanoukville in Cambodia.

Food

You will be served daily lunch, six breakfasts, and six dinners included in the price. The food is amazing and you might eat more noodles and rice than you are used to. The Cambodian flavors and combinations are excellent. Please drink only bottled water and be sure to check the seal and squeeze the bottle to check for leaks. Ride Expeditions also advises that you rinse with the bottled water after brushing your teeth and always clean the top of canned drinks before opening.

The round ice cubes with a hole in the middle are safe to have in your drinks. These are made with purified water. It is the crushed ice that can be bad, mainly due to the way it is transported and stored. Most places will wash the salad with purified water, but not all. Ride Expeditions would advise avoiding the salad in the smaller or rural restaurants that are catering to locals only.

Although Ride Expeditions cannot make any guarantees, they will make every effort possible to ensure that your food requirements are communicated properly to all kitchens. Please get in touch with them if you have more questions about the types of food to expect.
