As written in our previous article, The Chaos of Phnom Penh, we did do a small bicycle tour organised by Grasshopper Adventures. Next to the many photos we had taken, I also had mounted a GoPro camera on the steering bar of the mountain bike. Though I little detail was forgotten: I forgot to charge the batteries beforehand so in the end I did only capture fragments of the tour.
The nice thing about the Islands of the Mekong tour is the fact that most of the paths we followed are very small where no cars are running. As you will notice in the video, there are numerous times we crossed cow on the road. And we did drive through numerous plantations, fields and so on along the Mekong river. Add a few high-fives, playing children, monks collecting donations and you have a fair idea of how this tour looks like.
If you are looking to also join this tour: know this tour only takes half a day. It is a very easy cycling tour on mostly flat surface. Except for a small part in the city, there is not other traffic. So if you only have limited time and budget and you are in Phnom Penh, we can absolutely recommend it.
