Siem Reap, Cambodia, March 09, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Dusk is an evocative time in the Cambodian countryside as farm animals are brought in from the fields, kids meander home from school and daily life winds down to evening. This is an ideal time to explore the rural lands around Siem Reap, and Grasshopper Adventures’ new "Countryside at Twilight" tour takes cyclists along small paths, through rice paddies and past villages as the sun sets behind the palm trees.
Departing Siem Reap mid-afternoon, the tour heads out of town into the bucolic farmlands surrounding the city. Cycling small roads and tracks the tour makes a stop at a crocodile farm, before finding a good location to take a snack and drinks stop from where to watch the sun set into the fields (weather permitting).
The riding is relaxed and easy, with no hills at all on the route and is achievable to anyone comfortable riding a bike. Depending on season and weather there may be some small areas of sand or mud, but these short sections can be walked through for those not comfortable riding in those conditions.
Countryside at Twilight:
Operates daily: 3:30pm - 6:30pm
