Enjoy a full-day tour of Battambang province from Siem Reap. See the city of Battambang's elegant French architecture. Visit tranquil temples, ride a bamboo train through rice paddies, discover pretty villages, and see Cambodia's Killing Caves.
What to Expect
Depart from your hotel early in the morning and head from Siem Reap to Battambang province. Begin your day with a sightseeing tour around the city of Battambang along the Steung Sangké river. Pass Battambang's gorgeous French colonial buildings on the way to Odam Bang village.
From there, take a bamboo train through the region's rice paddies. This province is known as the country's “rice barn”, as it is the leading rice-producing province in Cambodia.
After enjoying a picnic lunch, head to the pretty village of Wat Kor and the hilltop temples of Phnom Sampeau and Phnom Banan. The area's limestone hills are dissected by a number of caves, and some still contain unexpected reminders of Cambodia's horrific Khmer Rouge regime.
Travel back along the Steung Sangké river and discover the region's tropical fruit orchards and vegetables planted along the fertile riverbanks of Steung Sangké river on the way back to your hotel in Siem Reap.
