The Temples of Angkor
The spectacular ancient Khmer temples at Angkor comprise one of the most impressive and well-preserved temple complexes in the world. Finally, thanks to Cambodia’s political stability and the creation of such high-end accommodations as the Grand Hotel d’Angkor—which we have chosen as our journey’s base—the timing is perfect to visit this magical site. That’s why we created this Cambodia Biking Post-Trip, dedicating two full days to temple exploration. When you’ve already come this far, Angkor simply should not be missed.
We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.
These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.

“I enjoy a good walk or ride, and feel comfortable while on the move.”
“I get moving at least once a week, and don’t mind a little sweat.”
“I get moving a few times per week and enjoy some exertion.”
“I want to feel invigorated each day and going hard how I like to do that.”

Grand Hotel d’Angkor, Siem Reap
The Grand Hotel d’Angkor is the area’s finest colonial landmark and provides the perfect base for our temple visits. At the end of each day’s explorations, your elegant guestroom awaits you—not to mention the historic Elephant Bar, fine restaurants, a beautiful pool and spa. The Grand is tastefully appointed with Art Deco-style furnishings and Khmer art objects. View hotel website »
