Bikers’ belief – two wheels good

Bikers’ belief – two wheels good

WHILE Angkor Wat tourists still reign supreme in those coming to our shores looking to past and ancient civilisations, our visitors are developing their interests and venturing out to the many villages and provinces, national parks and rainforests for some extra excitement.

Adventure tourism can mean anything from hang gliding to white- water rafting, trekking to offroading.

But Cambodia Enduro Adventures believes that if you are looking to see this beautiful and diverse country there is no better way than on a motorcycle.

“You can visit remote temples amidst the jungle rarely seen by others and visit traditional rural villages. We can provide customers with everything needed including bikes, lodgings, and support vehicles. Nearly 70percent of our clients are novice riders so anyone can enjoy these tours,” said Enduro’s Graham Burbidge.

The company’s tours encompass the whole of the country as well as southern Laos but the most popular destinations are the north, northeast and the south.

“In the north we travel through the provinces of Rattanakiri, Mondulkiri, Stung Treng, Preah Vihear and Kratie. Southern provinces include Kampong Spue, Koh Kong, Kampot, Kep and Sihanoukville while another popular route is the Pursat – Cardomon Mountains – Koh Kong,” said Graham.

“These are the most popular places but we vary our tours to meet the customer’s needs. The tours generally take place all year round but the most popular time is the dry season – November to April .

“Tour times are based on individuals and group needs. We usually like to keep groups to a maximum of 15 but that can be increased based on bike availability, guides and other factors.” The customers of Cambodia Enduro Adventures come from all over the world with about 60 percent Australian, 10 percent French and the remaining 30 percent from other mixed nations.

“We have been in operation since 2006. Only recently we began marketing ourselves through the internet as we see a developing market in this area,” said Graham.
