Well-preserved French Colonial architecture complemented by a bucolic landscape of rice paddies, temples and villages. Explore Angkorian ruins perched atop rocky promontaries, jump on the famous rickety Bamboo Train or drift down to great Tonle Sap.
“Although there is not one singular reason to visit Battambang, the combination of beautiful scenery, peaceful countryside, the famous local circus, and the charm of the town makes this a great inclusion on any comprehensive tour of Cambodia.”
Enfys Maloney, Team Leader
On the banks of the Sangkae River, west of the great Tonle Sap Lake, you will find the charming town of Battambang, one of Cambodia's largest settlements. Far less visited than Siem Reap and Phnom Penh, Battambang is a laid-back town offering visitors a glimpse into the ?real' Cambodia. The town is home to some of the best preserved French-Colonial buildings in the country as well as countless temples and markets. Battambang Province is blessed with fertile land, making the surrounding countryside lush and beautiful.
