Cambodia is a fantastic country to explore, with the highlight of course being Angkor Wat, more amazing than you could ever have imagined. Apart from the magical temples in the jungle, there are charming towns, beautiful beaches and the growing metropolis of Phnom Penh with restaurants and hipster cafes galore.
Angkor Wat is the best place to visit in Cambodia, and cycling around it is a fantastic way to explore the jungle and temple ruins. Read our Overall Guide to Cycling in Angkor Wat to find where to rent bikes in Siem Reap and other organizational tips. We have route guides to two loops – the Small Circuit and the Big Circuit. These are the two main routes around Angkor Wat Archaeological Complex and have been called this way ever since the French ‘rediscovered’ the temples in 1860.
