Quad biking in Siem Reap, Cambodia

One-day itinerary: Quad Bike Adventure Tour and Blessing Ceremony

Country: Cambodia

1 Day

Siem Reap, Cambodia: You will be met at your hotel at 6:30 a.m. and taken to the quad bike base. Here you will be given a short safety course before heading out for about four hours through the back roads of Siem Reap. Enjoy strikingly beautiful views of the rice fields and villages as you make your way through the countryside. Stop along the way at a number of interesting sites such as a local monastery, an everyday market, as well as a temple rarely visited by other visitors. Return to the base around lunchtime, and you will be transferred back to your hotel by tuk-tuk.

In the afternoon, your guide will take you to an active Wat where you should change to clothes you can get wet in as here you will experience the ceremony “Srouch Tec,” which roughly translates into “pour water.” A monk will chant in ancient Pali as he splashes water over you, washing away your sins and bad luck so you can start fresh, and by being a good person, can increase your good luck.
