Freedom. It´s according to Gandhi, the breath of life. And it takes a particularly surly demeanour not to feel that life coursing through one´s veins when motocycling in Cambodia.
Wherever it´s possible we stay in good hotels with fans and hot water. Air conditioned rooms are sometimes available for a small extra charge. In remtoe areas and small villages, where no hotels are available, we stay in safe, clean and friendly local homes or guesthouses. If you prefer to camp out under the stars; we can also arrange everything you need like hammocks, mosquito nets and all other things thats necessary to camp.
You are carrying your own stuff all the time with you. So make sure that you don´t bring too much with you. A small to medium size waterproof back pack is the best way to carry your belongings. Optional you can book a support vehicle that carrys all your equipment. A CamelBack is also recommended to keep you hydrated in the hot climate. During the trip we are happy to look after all your luggage in a safe storeroom in our office.
Our tours do not include food and drinks. The taste is different - so it would not be easy to charge a fair, individual price. This way breakfast, lunche and dinner remain as flexible as possible. Our guide will allways help you to find the right food your´re suffering, translate local written menues and place the order. Fresh and tasty food is everywhere available.
We provide helmets, gloves and googles. You need to bring your own clothts. If you have your own helmet and riding gear, we recommend to bring it with you. Wes also have some gear and cloths in stock, but can not guarantee for a a perfect fit for your size. Please contact us in advanced for information. A long sleve or biking jersey is ideal to avoid a sunburn. Biking pants or combat trousers and a good pair of hiking or biking boots are essential to avoid injuries.
We have a good stock of Honda Baja 250cc and Honda Xr 250cc. All bikes are maintained well and in a good condition. 250cc sounds for western people not very powerfull, but for the roads and trails in cambodia, they fit perfect.....solid, dependable and for those that think you are good - it can be quiet difficult to stay on!
The official currency in Cambodia, the Cambodian riel, trades at around 4,000 riel to the US dollar. But there’s a 90 percent level of dollarization in the country. What this means is that you don’t need to be concerned about getting riel when you arrive in Cambodia. In fact, the visa you get on arrival must be paid for in US dollars.
Temples are just the tip of the proverbial Cambodian iceberg. Here are some facts that help make up the rest of that iceberg.
Because of the genocide of the ‘70s up to 63% of Cambodia’s population is under thirty.
Cambodia’s flag is the only one in the world to feature a building, Angkor Wat.
During the four years of the Khmer Rouge’s rule around 2 million people were killed. That’s one-fifth of the population.
While Cambodia is renowned for cooking up creepy crawlies, most people eat fish and rice.
