Itinerary Details Day 3: Kompong Thom – Siem Reap (cycling day 3 – 60-100km)
After breakfast you will be transferred by van 90km to a town of Kompong Kdei in Siem Reap Province where you resume cycling. You will ride on a tree-shaded red soil road with beautiful villages along the way. This area is just 60km from Siem Reap Town, but few tourists come here. Your first break is at Makak Water Reservoir, which was constructed during the Pol Pot regime. Some survivors from the regime still come to this place to recall their hard time.
From there, you continue your ride to the village of Kvao. Here you will see very few villages, only jungle. After Kvao village you will cycle on an 800 year-old ancient road, passing through an area, which used to be the front line of the Khmer Rouge in the 1980s. Signs of war and the subsequent de-mining campaign become more prevalent, hitting home how much has changed in this country in only the last few years. Soon you will arrive at Beng Mealea Temple, and after a quick look around the temple you will pedal for the last part to the town of Damdek before we transfer to your hotel in Siem Reap Town.
Bid farewell to your cycling crew after an enjoyable few days of bike holiday.
The further evening is at your own interpretation.
