2. Grasshopper Bike Adventures
One of my favorite things to do in Phnom Penh is to get out of the city on a bicycle, Grasshopper offer a great half day ride from 745am – 12-1pm.
‘Away from the tuk tuks, the motorbikes, the massages, the pizza and the bars, is a truly unique experience. It’s as simple as going on a pedal through the Mekong Islands that lie just north of Phnom Penh. Return to the city with a new view on Phnom Penh and on Cambodia.
If you can ride a bike then you will love this. The distance is approx 25kms on mainly flat tracks and small roads. We stop often to chat to the locals and learn a little about what everyone is up to. There are lots of snacks and water stops as well as some great river ferry crossings. A delicious local lunch is also included.’

4. Sunset Cruise
A great way to escape the heat after a long day sightseeing is to head out on the river for a sunset cruise. My favourite is Tara Cruises, they offer a 2 hour cruise, hotel pick up and drop off, BBQ snacks on board and unlimited alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages for USD26pp. If you would like to book or check availability drop an email to email@example.com
