1 Rural Village, 1 Khmer Wedding & a Bucket of Rice Wine

Motorcycle tours in Cambodia are a lot of fun. I’ve seen my fair share of incredible places from the back of a motorcycle. One of my favourites is a rural village called DaSian, 100km to the east of Siem Reap. To get there by dirt bike we head deep into single track jungle trails until we come out at the deserted Preah Kahn Temple.
