Is cycling in Siem Reap safe?

August 8, 2013

Siem Reap, Cambodia

Renting a bicycle in Siem Reap is very cheap (our hotel had some free of charge), at the Sister Srey Cafe you can ge one for $5 per day (these are fancy lilac-coloured bikes with a basket in front).

We rode around with no direction and stumbled upon a buddhist school (?). Dropped the bikes and walked around – such a blissful atmosphere!

Then went to buy postcards at a local book store and had some coffee while writing them. See the 4 bicycles at the bottom left? That’s the Sister Srey’s rental. Told you they are nice :-)

Oh, and here’s a nice Khmer food spot I forgot to show you in the earlier post – it’s right behind the market and further across the street from the Blue Pumpkin.

They have nice interior, huge menu (those books up there really are the menu) and good local food.

I’ll be going to Bali soon and will be posting updates on Instagram, so follow me there and stay tuned!

Oh, and to answer the initial question, yes, cycling in Siem Reap is safe and you should totally do it.  Go for it. It’s really really safe. If you know how to ride a bicycle and if you’re not drunk or anything, you’ll be fine.
