|Motorcycles: On the Cambodia motorcycle trip we are on a Honda Baja (250 ccm) or equivalent motorcycles on the way. If you prefer a lower "Honda Degree" (seat height 800mm), please indicate this when booking.|
|Difficulty of the journey: The country is almost flat, except for some border areas. The difficulty of the journey therefore depends mainly on the unpaved roads. These unpaved roads vary from dirt roads along the Mekong to wide gravel roads through the jungle. Off-road experience is recommended, an off-road basic training could be very useful as preparation. It will teach you the best way to handle the bike and make riding more fun. In Cambodia, every year after the rainy season you have to wait and see how the dirt roads are doing. Big trucks use the roads even in the wet period and then often stop somewhere. So it happens that flat roads suddenly become a challenge. Nowadays most roads are bulldozed once a year with a bulldozer. Besides hard truck tracks, the rainy season also leaves gutters and pits in the road surface.|
|Clothing: A helmet, motorcycle protective clothing, good gloves and boots or other sturdy footwear are compulsory. Although the rainy season lasts until mid-October, it can still be very warm in November. Clothing should therefore not be too warm, but still protective. We recommend a full-face helmet or an off-road helmet.|
|Visa: At the airport in Phnom Penh you can buy a visa for 30 US dollars on arrival. All you need is a passport photo.|
|Insurance: The tour price includes insurance for property damage to third parties, but does not cover any damage to the motorcycle itself. The insurance can only be taken out locally in Phnom Penh. You need an international driving licence.|

During this Cambodia motorbike tour, we ride mostly on dirt roads, through the jungle, between the rice fields, along the Mekong River and over small trails we reach the wonderful Angkor Wat.
We take a boat trip along drifting villages and find our way south along narrow paths. Maybe the highlight is the route through the Cardamon Mountains. Part of it is still unpaved and that can be quite a challenge, especially if it has rained a little bit.
Day 1: Arrival Phnom Penh
In the course of the day you arrive in Phnom Penh. The hotel is located three quarters of an hour from the airport in the centre of the city. The ride to the hotel already gives you a first impression of the hustle and bustle and activities and architectural style. You will get to know the tour guide and other participants and will be informed about the rules on site. Depending on the time, we will also have the opportunity to discover something of the city and at the end of the day we will take a seat in one of the many street cafés along the Mekong River in Phnom Penh.
Day 2: Phnom Penh -Kratie
An early start for a nice and varied day. After only 1 km we are taken by ferry across the Mekong. This way we avoid the traffic of Phnom Penh. We ride on small paths along the Mekong, passing villages and many temples. On the way we enjoy a local lunch in Kampong Cham. We will literally ride through the backyards of the inhabitants. After a detour to the beautiful Han Chey temple with its magnificent view over the Mekong we continue our way along the river. We cross the Mekong once again and follow the road to Kratie. While enjoying a cool drink you can watch the sunset sitting in front of the hotel.
Day 3: Kratie - Sambor Prei Kuk
We ride a little way back, along the Mekong river to cross it by ferry, and immediately after that a challenging 190 km off-road journey begins, through rubber and fruit orchards and the landscape looks as if you are driving in the African savannah. Halfway along the road, the road is blocked by a chain and a toll is charged to cross the shaky bridge (which can hardly carry us). Once we reach civilization we have a simple lunch. If we have time, we go to the overgrown temple ruins at Sambor Leek Kuk to take a group photo that would not be out of place in an Indiana Jones movie.
Day 4: Sambor Prei Kuk - Siem Reap
There is a big road to Siem Reap, but we will leave the road soon, looking for small gravel roads. We visit small villages and local markets. Before we reach Siem Reap we get the first impressive temple complexes in sight. Siem Reap is one of the liveliest cities in Cambodia. In the center you will find many good restaurants and many cozy bars. It is also a perfect place to buy souvenirs or to have a massage. It is also our starting point from where we will visit the temples of Angkor Wat.
Day 5: SiemReap - Visit Ankor Wat
The visit of AngkorWat is on our program. Angkor Wat is the largest sacred building in the world and the temples are a source of inspiration. They are the pride of every Cambodian. The imagination of most visitors is also stimulated here. The period of the Angkor Empire lasted about 600 years. During this period, more than 70 temples, palaces, libraries and other buildings were built on an area of 350 square kilometers. Actually Angkor Wat is only one of these temples, but nowadays the whole area is called so. If you want to visit all temples on this gigantic area, one day is hardly enough. But your travel companion will be able to advise you. This day in Angkor Wat is certainly one of the highlights of your trip.
Day 6: Siem Reap - Battambang
After breakfast we leave the Angkor Wat area towards Battambang. If circumstances permit, we try to avoid the busy chaotic road as much as possible. In the direction of Sisophon, 100 km from Siem Reap, this part of highway No. 6 is still well ridable, but on highway No. 5 from Sisophon to Battambang there is hard work, so it is still a real challenge. Battambang is the second city in the country and along the river there are many French colonial houses protected by UNESCO.
Day 7: Battambang - Veal Veng
If it has rained, today can be a strenuous day as we ride through the Cardamom Mountains. Although Cambodia has been welcoming tourists for many years, the Cardamon Mountains have not yet been discovered by many foreigners. The mountains form the border between Cambodia and Thailand and have long been a stronghold of the Khmer Rouge. In the beginning the gravel roads are wide and flat, but then they become bumpier and hilly. The agricultural plains turn into tropical rainforests. We spend the night in the small village Veal Veng in a simple guesthouse. We have to order food and drinks in advance so that the guesthouse can take care of this in time.
Day 8: Veal Veng - Koh Kong
Today's track can also be difficult when rain turns the red surface into smooth clay. We take our time for this adventurous path through the green forest. The civilized world will be very far away for a while. On the way we will have a provisional lunch. After lunch we will look for the new Chinese road, a concrete block path, which will lead us to Koh Kong. If we have time, we will have a refreshing swim on the way. Koh Kong is located on the coast of the Gulf of Thailand, only a few kilometres from the neighbouring country.
Day 9: Koh-Kong -Phnom Penh
We leave the mountains on a freshly paved road towards Sre Ambel. This route is still quite quiet. After lunch we continue to Phnom Penh. We take a last look at the country life and exchange it again with the hustle and bustle of Phnom Penh. The city has a lot to offer in the evening, visit the "evening market" for the last souvenirs and look back on a wonderful adventure along the boulevard.
Day 10: Departure Phnom Penh
You will get a transfer to the airport and fly back to Germany with endless impressions.
