- On request
Escape the tourist hub of the heritage town and take to the beautiful countryside that exists in the shadow of Angkor Wat, riding pillion on your modern Vespa. This insightful tour with a local flavor opens up a vast and varied landscape of colorful village, country and rural life almost too remote to reach any other way. You start the tour at APOPO, a landmine clearing organization that's uses Hero Rats to sniff out the deadly explosives. Then your guide will take you to the stunning and peaceful pagoda, and teach you about Khmer spiritual belief systems, and organize a Buddhist blessing. You will then meet the locals and gain a fascinating insight into the patterns of daily life that have changed very little since the time of the temples. You'll taste delicious sticky rice grilled in bamboo, meet a local medicine man, and much more! This day tour is off the beaten path, so you'll find that there's rarely another tourist in sight. There is also a stop at a local family house surrounded by rice paddies. Here you get to sip on a cold coconut or a local beer, meet the family and spend time with their friendly water buffaloes before returning to the city.
