Explore scenic Oudong on a full-day cycling tour. Once the capital of Cambodia, Oudong returned to a simpler life when the capital was moved to Phnom Penh. You’ll ride through small villages, past rice fields and palm wineries, and visit a local market.
What to Expect
Oudong boasts impressive Khmer architecture dating to its days as capital of Cambodia. Enjoy this full-day escape from the city into a historical part of the Cambodian countryside.
After a morning transfer to the Phnom Penh city limits, you’ll begin your ride, quickly leaving the city’s hustle and bustle behind and ride on quiet winding dirt roads of the countryside.
Rolling hillsides create the backdrop as you cycle through the area’s landscape of rice fields and palm trees. See fermentation facilities that make prickly palm wine, a Cambodian specialty. The trail continues past the impressive Khmer Temple of the Heavens and into the small villages of Oudong.
Stop at a village tucked away in a valley among the green hills, where you’ll see an impressive temple and other signs of Oudong’s historical importance. In the market you’ll enjoy a lunch of fruits, vegetables, and local Cambodian specialties. If you’d like to climb to the temple and take in the views, there are 500 steps waiting for you!
After lunch, continue to ride through small villages, many of which were built on stilts over ponds or flooded paddy fields. Cycle along the shores of shallow lakes and admire the blooming lilies and lotus. As you approach the city limits of Phnom Penh, you’ll be met by the van for the drive back to your hotel.
