The Ultimate Cambodian Beach Motorbike Tour
Ultimate Cambodia Motorbike and Beach Tour – Tour Itinerary:
DAY 1: Ultimate Cambodia Motorbike and Beach Tour : LOCAL VILLAGES MOTORBIKE TOUR (B, D)
You will be picked up from your hotel around 8 a.m and driven to our depot, known to all as the Hog House, approximately 12kms from the centre of the city in the village of Takmau. Here we will have a light breakfast, finalize paperwork, take a ride and answer any queries. In departing from our depot you will avoid most of the craziness that is Phnom Penh traffic. We leave Takmao around 10am and ride motorcycles through the countryside to Takeo. Here we stop for a short drinks break in the centre of Takeo town. From Takeo we keep riding to Kampot.
Here we book into our hotel. You have a choice of two hotels, the historical Bokor Mountain Lodge with (6) rooms upstairs and bar/restaurant downstairs or the more modern Rikitikitavi with (4) rooms downstairs and bar restaurant upstairs. Both are small so we may end up occupying both. Don’t worry about location as they are both on the riverside and approximately 25 metres apart.
You will have a few hours to relax or explore the area, perhaps even a short 20km trip to the beach at Kep for a dip in the ocean. That night we’ll have a dinner at a Khmer restaurant on the river for dinner and a few drinks at a few of the bars in Kampot such as the Rusty Keyhole (a personal favorite of mine) then off to bed.
DAY 2: Ultimate Cambodia Motorbike and Beach Tour : KAMPOT MOTORBIKE TOUR TO SRE AMBEL (B, D)
We leave Kampot after breakfast. We make a motorbike trip towards west until we reach Route 4. From here we head 40 kilometers north until we reach the Sre Ambel turn off. The road to Koh Kong is finally completely sealed with 2 bridges now open. Another bridge is near completion and the final bridge is due to be completed sometime in late 2008. At least one ferry crossing will be necessary.
This is a nuisance but is no real problem. The ride from Sre Ambel can only be described in one word……..SENSATIONAL! In Koh Kong we check into the Oasis Resort. That night we’ll head off to a Khmer Seafood restaurant down by the river.
DAY 3: Ultimate Cambodia Motorbike and Beach Tour : DAY WITH SEVERAL OPTIONS OF MOTORCYCLE TOUR(B)
You have two options as followed:
Option 1: a lazy day by the beach or the pool. The beach is about 10 kilometers from town and has excellent but very basic restaurants and bars.
Option 2: for the more adventurous. Our guide will put you on a 250cc trail bike and take you on a one day tour of the Cardamon Mountains. He will let you choose the duration of your trip and the degree of difficulty. It could be a leisurely ride through the bush or it could be bloody hard work, it’s up to you. Whatever happens you are guaranteed a great days riding. This ride is free of charge and compliments of HCT.
DAY 4: Ultimate Cambodia Motorbike and Beach Tour : PHNOM PENH MOTORCYCLE TOUR TO SIHANOUK VILLE (B, D)
We say goodbye to the Oasis and return to route 4. We then head south to the Resort city of Sihanouk Ville. Route 4 is the shortest route from Phnom Penh to Sihanouk Ville so be warned, it can get quite hectic. When we reach Sihanouk Ville we check into the Reef Resort. From here you are free to relax by the pool or walk to the nearby beaches. That night we will come over Treasure Island, a Khmer seafood restaurant on a deserted beach. Then the rest of the night is yours to enjoy the nightlife that is Sihanouk Ville.
DAY 5: Ultimate Cambodia Motorbike and Beach Tour : ENJOY WITH SOME ACTIVITIES OF MOTORBIKE TOUR (B, D)
Again we have a day of choices, a lazy day down by the beach or a fishing trip, a big Kiwi mate of mine. We guarantee you will catch fish! Whatever you might or might not catch you will have a great day around the islands where you are also welcome to swim or go snorkeling. That night whether you are a fishermen or not, our guide will cook up his famous fish and chips for all.
DAY 6: Ultimate Cambodia Motorbike and Beach Tour : SIHANOUK VILLE MOTORCYCLE TOUR TO KEP (B, L, D)
We leave Sihanouk Ville but never fear, we are not leaving Cambodia’s beaches just yet. We depart the Reef Resort after breakfast and take a ride back to Kampot. After a drinks break in Kampot we ride a short motorbike to Krung Kep. In Kampot we decide whether to have lunch at Kristian’s Rusty Keyhole (where the BBQ ribs are famous throughout the Kingdom) or, after a drink, we ride to Kep for seafood (where the seafood is famous throughout the Kingdom) Kep was once the darling of elite Cambodians before Sihanouk Ville became Cambodia’s number one beach destination.
In Kep we check into the Beach House, a splendid hotel set in the hills overlooking the ocean. Here you can enjoy the pool or walk down to the beach. That night we will visit a Khmer seafood restaurant. There are getting to be more drinking establishments in Kep, but maybe a swim or quiet beer back at the Beach House is the best way to finish our last night before Phnom Penh.
DAY 7: Ultimate Cambodia Motorbike and Beach Tour : MOTORCYCLE TOUR BACK TO PHNOM PENH (B, L, AND D – A BBQ)
we don’t need depart immediately around the 150 odd kilometres back to the Hog House. Maybe an early breakfast followed by an hour or two on the beach. We’ll check out around noon, and then have lunch at another Khmer seafood restaurant. After lunch we take a ride to the final leg of our tour. We’ll return at the Hog House in Takmau well before dark. There we’ll have a few drinks, a swim and a BBQ before you are dropped off at your hotel in Phnom Penh and stay overnight here.
Notes: This trip will be accompanied by an escort vehicle and a tour guide. All prices are per bike. If you are traveling 2 up on your motorbike, there is an extra fee of $25/day to cover meals. If an extra room is requested, it will be charged at cost price, upon arrival at the hotel. This trip was a trail bike trip until recently. In fact the road and bridges from Kampot to Route 4 were only finished in the last 12 months. The bridges to Koh Kong are not yet finished, so keep in mind that one and possibly two ferry crossings are needed to reach Koh Kong. Extra day/s can be included where possible on request.
When Motorcycle we stay in friendly hotel, guesthouse or homestays. Some are more basic than others! Bear in mind that some of the places we overnight in are not on the standard tourist trail.In larger cities and towns, our hotels are generally more western style and are three or four hotels or resort. Please do not expect the same standard as you would your home.
Homestay in the villages is simple interm of bedding condition and ementies. We will sleep on beds or floor with mattress, clean sheet, pillow and mosquito nets. Toilet is usually western style.
General rules for motorbike riding in Vietnam & Other country
It is claimed that riding motorbike in Vietnam & other country is not easy, especially for the inexperienced ones. However, it would be much easier for motorcyclists if they follow the rules and traffic laws of Vietnam & other country rigidly. To ensure that you have a safe motorcycle trip and lifetime experience in Vietnam, there are some regulations that you need to bear in mind:
- Helmet is a compulsory equipment for motorbike riding
- You should use the high-quality helmet which was certified by traffic safety management bureaus or helmets following international standards. If you use the cheap helmet, it could be dangerous in case of injuries and accidents.
- In Vietnam, we follow the right hand side rule of traffic
- Be confident and decisive when riding. Don’t freak out or be nervous.
- Ride carefully and control the speed in different circumstances.
- In Vietnam & other country, it is acceptable in using horn. Therefore, using it smartly because it could help you avoid undesirable cases. In some routes, there might be blind corners or crossroads, so it would be useful to utilize horn.
- Give ways to bigger vehicles such as trucks, cars, buses or cart-transporting vehicles. It can ensure your safety and one thing for sure, they would take up for big parts of road surface.
- Ride slowly when making a turn. It is important for you to push the light signals and sound so the left-behind vehicles are aware of your turn. However, you are advised to use your hand gesture and body language also because it would be more noticeable (waving hand when you want to turn left or right)
- Show your respect and friendliness to people on the roads. Avoid conflicts with others because you don’t know who you are facing with.
- Be friendly and chummy to other vehicle controllers when they greet you.
- Be polite with the police. Don’t show out your abnormal or strange and suspicious behaviors on the road and the police will get no attention on you.
- Drinking and riding should not be gone along.
