Phnom Penh, Kampong Cham, Kratie, Ratanakiri, Mondulkiri.. (Northeast Cambodia Loop) – 3. Motorcycle

I did a little more research before this trip and heard good things about Angkor Motorcycles in Phnom Penh. Their motorcycles are known to be road worthy and properly maintained. Furthermore, they promised to put working odometers on all their bikes. Seeing that this trip might get a little tough, I decided that it is better to spend the extra money. Actually, their rental rates were just slightly above that of Lucky! Lucky!. At US$9 per day for Honda Degree 250, it was definitely affordable.

To my pleasant surprise, Angkor Motorcycles provided me with a basic set of bike tools, which would come in helpful if my motorcycle is to break down. I also requested an additional screw driver to mount my Garmin GPS receiver which was provided with no questions. However, I was slightly disappointed when I found out only after riding for 10km that the odometer was not working. I rode back to the shop for repair. No big deal I guess, I was not in a hurry and it was partly my fault for not checking earlier.

For your reference, Angkor Motorycles is located at #92 Eo, Street 51 (between street 172 and 174). They can be contacted at telephone numbers 012 722098 and 012 222205. Their fax number is 023 986333 while their email address is [email protected]. Managed by Khann Cheng, Angkor Motorcycles rents and sells motorcycles including AX-1, Degree, Baja, XLR, XR and Dream 100. They accept credit cards but you have to pay a rather hefty premium for the service. US dollars is still the preferred mode of payment.

Honda Degree 250 – my scrambler of choice. If you are wondering about the condition of the motorcycle, the photo was actually taken after the ride.

  1. I have a motorcycle I want to ride from Udon Thani to Cambodia. What border crossing will give me a 30 day business visa. Will the bike make problems? Any advice? I plan to get a 6 month to one year business visa. Will Thai licence tags make a problem? Where to buy insurance? Any advice?

  2. Hi Richard,

    You should head over to gt-rider.com forums for advice. They have members who rode their Thai licenced bike into Cambodia before.
