The Red Dirt Tour
If you sign up for this adventure, you’ll be riding at what is regarded as the best time of year! The temperature should be the coolest for riding, and the rain should be minimal.
Scheduled Ride start dates are:
• 8 December 2018
• 7 December 2019
• 5 December 2020
A scheduled adventure with our good friends over at Mototrails in the UK, we also offer this tour on a bespoke basis to suit your own calendar, or you are welcome to join Red Dirt on their adventure too! We would just politely ask that if you have heard of Cambodia Expeditions through Mototrails or their Red Dirt Tour promotions, that you make it known clearly to us on booking, or that you continue to book your adventure directly through them, so they don’t miss out on their commission.

Day 3 – Riding
Phnom Penh to Kampong Cham – 120km
The Red Dirt Tour gets off to an early start, leaving Phnom Penh you and your bike will take a ferry across the Mighty Mekong river, stopping at a local temple for a traditional Buddhist Blessing (for luck on your journey ahead) and then follow the river road to Kampong Cham. An easy introductory ride.
The accommodation you can expect on this tour is mid-range. Please bear in mind that Cambodia has only really had a tourism industry for 17 years, and some mid-range options are rather more rudimentary than you might expect in the West.
Your accommodation is included from the evening of the 14th November up until the evening of the 25th November inclusive.
Based on twin sharing accommodation.
Single occupancy upgrades.
