It is possible to travel along the top of the Angkor Thom City Wall by either walking or using a bicycle. Local people also use motorcycles, but since there are breaks in the wall (and you will have to either turn around or climb the break) this is not really recommended. The city is perfectly square and each side is 3 kilometres long so the total distance is 12 kilometres.

There are five Angkor Thom City Gates - South, North, East, West, and the Victory Gate which is also on the eastern wall of the city. At each Gate it is necessary to descend to the ground level and cross over to the other side of the Gate to continue the journey.

There are also four Prasat Chrong (corner temples) at the four corners of the city. Since each one of the gates and corner temples are interesting places to stop (and photograph), the journey is easy (unless there is a new break in the wall) and enjoyable. Most of the breaks in the wall have detours that are fairly easy to navigate, but there are places where you will have to use either a makeshift bridge (walk your bike) or carry your bike down into and back out of a gully.

I strongly recommend that you make sure to carry an extra supply of water, and unless you feel very comfortable traveling alone in the jungle, a friend or two for company. I also recommend that you wear a hat, long pants and long sleeve shirt, because the trail is narrow and the bushes and trees are very persistent in their efforts to reclaim the jungle. Thorns of all sorts have a habit of coming at you from all directions.
