Siem Reap Countryside Cycling and Cooking (Half Day)
Today, you will bike through Siem Reap’s surrounding countryside and prepare a local Khmer meal with a village chef to offer to the local monks. Buddhist monks live away from their families and are not allowed to have jobs, so they depend on the faith and charity of the local people.
You’ll shop with the chef at the local village market, cook some authentic Cambodian dishes, and then learn how to pack them to offer to the local pagoda. A short walk takes us to the pagoda, where the monks live so you can hand them the alms and the monk will offer you a blessing. This is also your opportunity to ask him anything you’d like to know regarding Cambodian culture and Buddhism!

From your hotel in Siem Reap into the Cambodian countryside
You will be picked up by a guide from your hotel/guest house in Siem Reap at 8:00 AM, then you'll start biking just outside Siem Reap. You will meet the village chef who will take you to the local food market for grocery shopping. The chef might be teaching you how to cook Amok, a popular fish soup, or Samlor Korko. Once finished your Khmer cooking, the chef and his wife will teach you how to pack the meal and rice into a banana leaf.
After your little cooking class, you will take a short walk to the pagoda, where the monks live. You can offer alms to the monk and he will give you a blessing. This is also your opportunity to ask the monk anything you'd like to know regarding Cambodian culture and Buddhism!
We'll then return by bike and arrive back to your hotel/guest house in Siem Reap in the early afternoon.
