Begin with a transfer to the West Gate of Preah Khan temple. Similar to Ta Prohm, Preah Khan consists of towered enclosures and shoulder-hugging corridors. Unlike Ta Prohm, however, Preah Khan is in a reasonable state of preservation and ongoing restoration efforts should maintain and even improve this situation. After collecting your bike from the East Gate of Preah Khan, you’ll ride along a picturesque forest path to Ta Nei temple. After a relaxed visit, you’ll continue again along the forest path to Takeo temple before continuing to the West Gate of Ta Prohm. A visit to Ta Prohm is a real highlight as it is one of the area’s most beautiful & untouched temples. Continue your ride to the east entrance ofthe legendary Angkor Wat for a brief visit before transferring back to your hotel.
