Authentic Battambang

A laid-back riverside town perfect for strolling whilst admiring Colonial French architecture, albeit some of it slightly worn by age. Visit traditional Khmer wooden houses which offer a glimpse into Cambodia’s recent tragic history.

  • River Side town with French architecture

  •  Traditional Khmer Houses

  • Authentic Cambodia

Follow a free heritage walk around the town to get a great feel for Battambang. Stroll next to the river, stop at the local’s market and try some street food. We recommend hiring a tuk tuk driver for the day and going into the countryside.

Battambang Holidays

What Is there to do in Battambang?

  • In the late afternoon head to the summit of Phnon Sampeau and enjoy the vista. You will see Crocodile mountain in the distance, the one-time stronghold of the Khmer Rouge. Half-way down the summit are the killing caves of Phnon Sampeau. A clear example of Cambodia’s dark history, but now a place of pilgrimage. At the bottom of the hill at dusk people gather, grab a can of Angkor beer and wait for an amazing spectacle. When the light starts disappearing a huge column of millions of bats burst from a cave to head to their feeding grounds.
