Accommodation

Cambodia has many different lodging styles to offer, depending on your tour and your budget from simple to very luxurious. We usually stay in hotels, but depending on the region and the type of tour, we have good addresses of guesthouses. All the places where we stay have shower and toilet. But It is not always guaranteed that the water is hot! But you will not have to take a swim in a river or sleep in a hammock. Only on request!

equipment

You don’t need to bring a mosquito net with you. All guest houses are equipped with standard mosquito nets in the rooms if needed. If you wish, you can eventually bring a thin bed sheet, easy to carry in your backpack.

We travel as light as possible! A motorcycle jacket is not adapted to the climate because the temperature of Cambodia during the day is often between 25-35 ° C.
Just take a small soft bag of 20L max and the minimum: a pair of t-shirts, short or long pants, 1 pair of flip flops or sandals, toiletry bag and Camel Bag, essential to hydrate yourself at any time. You can easily find a laundry service in most of the hotels.
Don’t forget your rain jacket in the rainy season!

We lend all motorcycle equipment (protection, helmet, boots …).
However, if you wish to bring your own equipment, we are able to store it safely for the rest of your stay in Cambodia as well as your personal belongings for the duration of the Tour.
No driver will participate in our tours without wearing helmets, boots and gloves, this to ensure your safety and the smooth running of the tour for the entire group.
