Good morning! Starting at Phnom Penh and after a fine nights sleep at our pre-tour accommodation and breakfast, we Jump aboard our Tuk Tuk and ride across the city through the hustle and bustle with a mixture of old and new architecture. Take in the sights and sounds of street markets as we head towards the outer city across to the Killings Fields, one of many sites used by the Khmer Rouge. This mass grave is a reminder of Cambodia's dark past. Afterwards we head across the 21, a former high school use as an integration prison, then to the Royal Palace and back out the hotel for lunch. The afternoon sees us jump aboard a boat for a twilight river cruise along the Tonle Sap River and Mekong River, with a great view of Phnom Penh, the Royal Palace and Wat Phnom.

Day 2 Phnom Penh - Kep
Good morning! This is what we have all been waiting for to begin a journey like no other and discover this truly incredible kingdom from the saddle of a dirt-bike. With our luggage packed onboard our trusty support 4x4 we begin our ride through some morning traffic. Within 40min we are well out of the city and begin our journey to the southern most tip of Cambodia towards our destination of Kep, aka 'The City of Ghosts. You'll feel the temperature drop as we head towards the southern coast. The riding will be a mixture of road and dirt roads, passing through lots of rural villages and endless surrounding rice fields that are still often ploughed using water buffalo. Midway break to enjoy the CMT picnic lunch which is always super popular (and tasty) along with our endless supply of chilled bottled water, soft drinks and fruits.
Late afternoon has us arriving at our hotel with ocean views Kep provides, complete with an idyllic coastal town yet to be ravaged by major development. Enjoy peaceful seaside views out to the surrounding tropical islands with a cold beer. Local specialty is Kampot Green Pepper Fried Crab! A must try for dinner, although any one of their menu items are tasty and popular at our preferred seaside restaurant. Prior to that, plenty of time for a walk along the Kep foreshore or a swim in the massive beachside pool on offer at our resort style hotel.
Day 3: Kep - Kampot
Let today's journey begin along the coastline onward towards the Vietnam border with a visit to small rural fishing villages with stunning ocean views. Today provides a mixture of sandy trails, shaded by coconut trees that fringe the shores. Then it's up the dirt road that passes through the jungle canopy of Kep Mountain as we thread our way towards riverside town of Kampot, riding through a checker-board of salt farms on the coastal fringe.
Enjoy lunch beside a secret but huge hand-dug lake built by the Khmer Rouge, before an afternoon of back roads, hugging the impressive Bokor Mountain range. We ride into the beautiful riverside town of Kampot for the evening. Kampot is unique and packed with French Colonial buildings that line riverside with bars and cafes to keep you entertained. So, relax and enjoy a grand overnight stay!
Day 4: Kampot - Sihanoukville
Time to climb! On the bikes that is, for another day of incredible adventure riding as you make your way up the twisty jungles of Bokor Mountain Range trails to visit the 'Ghost' Casino'. Built in the early 1900’s by the French the 'Ghost Casino' once functioned as a fancy establishment, but has been left to decay at the very top of the misty and mysterious Bokor Mountain impressive and spooky… incredible views for miles and miles. The mountain is home to many rare animals and plant species. Descend the mountain and ride towards the amazing 'Road of a Thousand Turns', a truly unique trail on a gravel road which winds through remote fishing villages. The people here have very little yet their smiles and enthusiastic waves are huge!
Onwards! To our evening destination, of Sihanoukville! Sihanoukville is a small seaside town popular for travellers for its white sandy beaches and relaxed lifestyle. So, enjoy the many bars and restaurants that a line the beach just across from our hotel after a day you will long remember.
Day 5: Sihanouk - Koh Kong
Follow the long twisting roads and sweeping terrain through 'elephant country' and lush jungle surroundings as you traverse the road which cuts through the Cardamom Mountains. This region is unique and recognised as one of the last remaining pockets of lush jungle and timber, as it's currently too inaccessible to be culled for the wicked illegal logging trade. This awesome route is dotted with pristine rivers and charming fishing towns until reaching the Thai Border town of Koh Kong. We cross the border (no visa required) into the 'dubious' special economic zone, which is in fact an island and stay at the luxurious Koh Kong Casino resort. WIth miles of beachfront, an impressive pool with wet bar and yes, in-house casino (drink free whilst playing). While most of us are not gamblers is makes for some fun in this unique location.
Day 6: Koh Kong - Pamou
Ok its all been more than civilized thus far… time to go remote and see what 99.9% of tourists never see. The truly remote and wonderful Cambodia! Today you ride a newly constructed road, which leads to a number of remote hydroelectric stations. Beyond the stations we'll take you down some bumpy and challenging gravel village roads nicknamed the Bong (red-dirt) Highway. Home to MadMax style custom trucks and cars that are often seen stuck, bogged in mud or under repair. You’ll ride through tiny remote villages, where the kids are always delighted to see a “spacemen” in all our riding gear, and giant dirt bikes. Late afternoon has us arriving in Pamou Village, an absolutely non-tourist destination and one of the most popular with previous CMT riders! We visit often and have discovered a real 'Ma and Pa' home-stay there, enjoy modest but clean accom in bungalows (still Air-Con and wifi!) followed by wonderful home cooked meal!
Day 7: Pamou - Battambang
Full days ride and mixture of dancing roads, river crossings, mud, bamboo jungle sections and some long straight red dirt as we'll be covering some serious km's today. Trails and some bitumen to get us into Battambang, Cambodia’s second largest city and home to many monks living in nearby temples. Battambang with it's old world charm, french colonial architecture and surrounding temples; it's an outstanding place for our overnight stay, offering quality restaurants and cold beers. Enjoy our grand hotel with roof top pool!
Day 8: Battambang - Siem Reap
Be awaken by the chanting sounds from the nearby temples. Today we ride the back roads through Battambang, a very traditional city and way of life. We soon arrive at a very special boat, a unique vessel. With bikes loaded and strapped down, we jump aboard for a 4hr journey that takes us through the river complex of canals and waterways, meandering through remote fishing villages (subject to weather conditions). We'll break from the narrow waterways into the Tonle Sap, the largest inland lake in all of South East Asia. The Tonle Sap provides most of the fish for khmer population and during the wet season it doubles in size, fed by the mighty Mekong River.
Mid afternoon we arrive at the 'Floating Village' on the outskirts of Siem Reap. Bikes unloaded we ride towards Siem Reap. But, not before taking in some local trails and having some fun, before arrive to our hotel in the heart of Siem Reap. Siem Reap is a popular hub for travellers from the around the globe whom have come to visit the awesome Angkor Wat complex, and is maze of streets and lane-ways filled with cafes, bars, craft markets and night markets! All this seems surreal after our epic adventure tackling the most incredible rides Cambodia has to offer. Cold beer could be just the thing, or a dip in this pool...or both.
