When you think of Siem Reap, immediate thoughts are of Angkor Wat and the “Great lake” Tonle Sap Lake – for good reason! But if you’re heading to Cambodia soon, make sure you check the fabulous people at
On a recent trip to Siem Reap, my 9 year old son and I booked an “Easy Ride” tour with Quad Adventure Cambodia, a 21km circuit around the Siem Reap country side, where you get to travel through rice paddies, villages and around pagoda’s.
The quads were great fun to ride and with the instructions given before the ride, super easy to ride and control. Bikes are 350cc and automatic, which makes life much easier! Plenty of stops are made to grab a drink, shot some photos and to ask questions.
Helmets are supplied and must be worn! Long pants would have been handy (clearly stated on their website – but we didn’t have), as the engine can get quite warm, but shorts worked. Water is also a must in the Cambodian heat.
The guide on the day, Piseth, was full of information and happy to chat about himself, Siem Reap, Cambodia and anything thing else of interest. Everyone we meet from the owner down, were professional, friendly and welcoming. The company provide hotel pick up / drop off – included in the tour price.
A fantastic afternoon on the dirt tracks that is highly recommended for young and old! Heck, we went back a few days later for a second ride!!
