What To Expect

Wat Samrong Knong
We’ll start in the morning, at 8:00am I will pick you up from the hotel. After a short briefing, we will first take our bike along the small road (dirty road) to see one of the activities which is called Blacksmith.
Here we can have a look at how they make knives, sickle, axes,hoes…etc. then We keep going on the same road line for few km until our second stop at the factory which is called Sticky rice bamboo cake(khrolan). Here we can see how they are made using fresh ingredients like Sticky rice, coconut milk, sugar,salt,Black soy beans cook it in the Bamboo … and so on. Then we have an opportunity to taste this delicious snack.
After this we turn around and enter the pagoda,killing field (Wat Samrong Khnong) nearby. This is the oldest pagoda in Battambang, more than 300 years old. And you will get to know more about Buddhism and the history of Khmer Rouge from our tour, It is possible to take pictures inside.
Then after that, we move on to the countryside where we can see nice scenery and the activities of growing and harvesting rice depending on the season And learn how to grow /harvest it by the farmer as available. There are some more sights to enjoy on the way such as, local school(public primary school), fruit farm…etc.
So next stop, we ride across the ruined bridge to visit the Cambodian cheese factory (fish paste) There is a lot involved in the fish making process like smoke fish,dry fish,fish paste etc! It is a very important ingredient in local cooking, and without it , the food is would just not be the same! It is an incredibly strong smell that you may not have experienced before.
Let’s take a break for a while. Now we have time to relax at the place which is called Rice paper Making .You can see the rice paper being made for fresh spring rolls and deep fried spring rolls and learn how to make them from the owner. Then sit down and enjoy some of them freshly made .Delicious .After about 10 more minutes,we reach the banana chip (dry banana) You can see how they make dried banana from one family who is working together with children. You will be able to try it and learn how to make it by following them.

Reviews

We loved cycling around Battambang. Great experience!
Zoe S, 29-05-2019
We saw the ad on TripAdvisor and after spontaneously calling the contact number, we really easily and quickly had the booking confirmed for the very next day. So after having been picked up at our hotel, we started our bicycle tour around the outskirts of Battambang.

It was fantastic. We not only had lots of fun cruising trough the roads but also seeing all of these impressive sights on the side: passing Buddhist temples or visiting families and watch how they produce rice paper or stopping by the fish market.

Even despite the Cambodian heat, we really enjoyed the tour :-)

We absolutely recommend this half-day trip where you can both experience authentic Cambodian culture and also this beautiful nature and landscape!
Excellent way to see some Cambodian life

Rith was a wonderful guide around the outskirts of Battambang, showing us a few Cambodian crafts and agricultural practices, treating us to sugarcane juice, dried bananas, bamboo rice snacks and always ready with a bottle of water for the hot weather. It was a great tour.

Cycling in Battambang seems intimidating at first, but once you realise everyone is quite relaxed and patient it becomes a lot easier to get about. The routes were all nice and flat and cycling is a great way to be able to say hello to everyone you see.
Great bicycle tour

This bike tour lets you see the true Battambang and get a taste of the life of the locals. The tour guide is full of knowledge and spoke very good English. There is a choice of itinerary which leaves the tour in your hands. It was one of my favourite days in Asia and would highly recommend!
