2. Remember extra batteries – You will most probably spend the whole day riding through the park and wandering through the temples, so make sure you bring along a few extra GoPro batteries and a fully charged camera.
3. Bring your handle bar mount – Obviously, as you will be riding a bicycle, the GoPro Handle bar mount will come in handy.
4. Pack a few water bottles – Your body needs to refill its water supply quite often, and the intense heat and humidity of central Cambodia combined with the exercise from the bicycle ride will leave you very thirsty for some of that sweet H2O.
5. Fruit it up – Yes you will get tired quickly, so do yourself a favour and stop at a food stall and order some delicious tropical fruit. Contrary to popular belief fruit contains a lot of healthy sugars which will help replenish the energy drained by the sun and the bicycle ride. To boost, it tastes amazing as well.
6. Bring some sunscreen – Even though the majority of the park is covered by a dense green forest canopy, those sneaky sun beams will still find a way to make it to your fragile skin and leave you with some nasty sun burns after the day’s ride.
7. Beware of the monkeys – They might seem friendly at first, but as soon as I got close, they started making their way closer and clambered their way up my bike. One particular monkey, made a grab for my water bottle and my arm, before giving me a suspicious gasp and running off.
(Also don’t feed them, but hopefully I don’t have to tell you that.)
