Half-Day Battambang Bike Tour
From USD 28.00
Combine history and industry during this unique bike tour of Battambang. Your guide collects you from your hotel for a busy half-day visiting factories, fields and a popular fish market. This tour is more than a bike rental; it’s a curated view into working life in this unique city. Before returning to your hotel, stop off at a rice wine factory to learn the secrets of  rice wine and whiskey production.
What to Expect
Get picked up from your hotel and head over to the bike rental office in the early morning for your 4-hour tour. Start off on a small dirt road to see a blacksmith factory. Spend a few minutes having a look the activities of the blacksmiths making cutting tool like axes, hoes and knifes. After, proceed to another factory that produces sticky rice bamboo cakes. Take some time to look around watch the locals making and selling this cake. You can enjoy a taste of this delicious snack as well.
Next, enter a 300 year old pagoda called Wat Samrong Khnong ( Well of shadow / killing field ) and learn a bit about Buddhist history and the Khmer Rouge from your guide. Then continue on the countryside road to see the activities of farmers who grow/harvest crops in the fields (based on the season). Spend as much as you would like to communicate and relax with locals here.
After this, cross the Sangkher River to visit the famous Phrahok Fish Market. About 10 minutes later, you will reach a place known as the rice paper villages. Here, you can take a break and enjoy delicious snacks such as fresh and deep-fried spring rolls. Have a look at how rice paper is produced while relaxing.
After this, move on to the banana chip villages. Take about 10 or 15 minutes to watch and learn how to make this dried banana treat, from a family who works together with their children to produce it. Then you can sample this delicious snack. The last stop will be to a rice wine factory. Learn about the rice whiskey production process which uses interesting ingredients such as curry, rice hush, broken rice and rice grain.
When all the activities are complete, you will head back to the bike shop and then to your hotel.
