Half day sunset tour in Siem Reap, Cambodia
Bike Siem Reap and the Angkor countryside when it is most beautiful, in the afternoon leading up to sunset.
At the end of each day the city of Siem Reap starts to power down in intensity, as workers prepare to head home and visitors await evening events and dinner.
Before sunset is an ideal time to tour by bike and witness the residents in transition and the sites of the countryside and Angkor Park unburdened by crowds of tourists. The heat of the day gives way quickly to a nearly surreal feeling of calm in the city, the countryside and on the pathways in and around the Angkor complex.
The evening concludes with a private Dragon Boat cruise on an ancient waterway, whilst enjoying local delicacies and refreshments on board, the perfect way to end your sunset tour.
Angkor at Twilight promises a glimpse of city life blended with the flavour and scenery of the countryside adjacent to the temples and finishes in the fading light of sunset in the Angkor Park.
Please note: Siem Reap sunset tours will not operate April 14th, 15th & 16th due to Khmer New Year celebrations. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Our afternoon sunset tour starts at the Grasshopper shop.
We ride past the King’s Siem Reap residence and through the Royal Gardens. In the large trees, you can see hundreds of giant fruit bats before their evening flight into the Angkor forests.
Continuing up the Siem Reap River we ride past private homes and small riverside markets. The juxtaposition of rich and poor can at times be dramatic. Crossing the river we wind our way along red clay roads and small dirt trails, through a series of local villages, crossing small farms and passing school children on their way home. We make our way towards the west edge of the Angkor Park.
After a brief stop to refuel on cold water and fresh fruit we’ll continue our ride. We bypass the crush of visitors exiting the Park and instead follow single track lanes, past stunning rice fields and small, historic family parcels where life appears unchanged for generations.
As the temples close to visitors we will access Park roads and trails to view this remarkable historic site in a different context, twilight, and poise ourselves for a glimpse of sunset as the day comes to a close.
To complete the evening we take a peaceful Dragon Boat ride on the moat of Angkor Thom, with local delicacies including soft drink and champagne on-board.
At the end of our boat ride an air-conditioned van is waiting to transport us back to the Grasshopper shop in Siem Reap to arrive around 6:30pm, with plenty of time after your sunset tour to enjoy dinner and evening activities back in town.
