You can rent motorcycles (100cc – 125cc) for $3 – $5 per day. It is popular for travelers to rent 250cc dirt bikes, even if it is a bit too much weight and power for the slow city traffic (it costs you from $10-$13 for 250cc). A 100cc is highly recommended for in-city driving. For the poor roads outside Phnom Penh, a 250cc is a perfect choice. Cycling in the city challenging in the extreme due to the chaotic traffic. Outside the city, roads change dramatically in condition. Wear a helmet, stay right, drive slowly and remember that medical services are quite limited if you do decide to ride.
