Cambodia’s Siem Reap is the gateway to one of the most important archaeological sites in Southeast Asia: the temples of Angkor.

After an early start to watch the sun rise, we like to spend our days exploring by bike (or elephant), riding through the forests to Bayon Temple, or pedaling even further afield to visit the jungle temple of Ta Prohm. A favourite route follows along flat dirt roads through rice paddies and local villages to Tonle Sap Lake, where a boat tour reveals the floating villages of the Machrei.

Our other “must-dos” including ox-cart driving and hiking up Bakheng Hill for a panoramic view of the ancient city. At the end of the day, we retreat to either the Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor, overlooking the Royal Palace, or the Amansara Resort—the former guesthouse of King Sihanouk—for a well-deserved Khmer feast.

"It was a lucky day that I met Cari Gray. I felt luckier still when I phoned her about designing a bespoke bike trip for my clients over the Christmas holidays--with just two months to get it done-- and she said yes!  Perhaps luckiest of all were my clients, who got to experience the best trip possible to Laos and Cambodia. Gray & Co. goes the extra mile all day long!  I have NEVER dealt with a more thorough, honest, caring, supportive, and professional company. I was thrilled from beginning to end!"
