What to Expect

Stop 1: Memorial Site
First up, we will bike to a local memorial site dedicated to Khmer Rouge victims. We will fill you in about this difficult period of Cambodia’s history, but will also speak about its effect on modern-day Cambodian society.

Stop 2: Bamboo Rice Cakes
On our next stop, we will pay a visit to the makers of bamboo rice cakes. Find out more about the processes involved in the making of this special countryside delicacy, and yes—you may sample a taste!

Stop 3: Fish Paste Making
We will then make our way towards a local fish paste market. The smell may be slightly overwhelming for some, but we’re sure you’ll find this stop fascinating! As you watch the processes of fish paste making, you’ll learn about the fishing culture of Battambang and the community that depends on the sea for its sustenance.

Stop 4: Khmer Noodles
Next up, we will visit a local noodle maker. Here, you’ll learn about another important staple in Cambodian cuisine. Be sure to check out (and try) the manual pounder, a unique device that is still used in noodle making!

Stop 5: Rice Wine
We will then cycle to Donteav Village, located roughly 7 kilometers from the town center. With the development of Cambodian tourism, this little village has built a reputation for its quaint, handmade and home-grown products. At Donteav, we will check out the processes involved in the making of rice paper, a staple that can be found in many Asian cuisines such as spring rolls.

Stop 6: Bananas for Bananas!
Next, we will cycle to a local rice wine distillery where you will get to observe the processes involved in the production of this local favourite, which is used for medicinal and recreational purposes. And yes, if you are wondering, you will get to sample a taste!

Stop 7: Rice Paper Making
On our next stop, we will find out more about the humble banana—a fruit native to Battambang. We will meet a local villager who has been involved in the dried banana trade for more than 20 years and discover how this simple trade has sustained the lives of many families in the village.

Stop 8: Local Lunch, local cuisine 
Hungry yet? We bet you will be! At this point, we will take a break at the Rice Paper Stop, where we will enjoy a delicious local lunch served with refreshing coconut water. There are hammocks here too, so you are more than welcome to relax and have a short snooze; or you may opt to chat to your friendly guides, who will be more than happy to answer any questions you have.
