Found in the far western region of Cambodia, this hushed-up city is filled with some of the country’s finest French colonial gems along the narrow, quiet streets and Sangkar River.
Boasting Cambodia’s most scenic river trip, Battambang offers a fascinating insight into daily local life along the Sangkar and fascinating Siem Reap.
Though this is the main reason why many come to traditional Battambang, the small-town feel adds to its unique charm, while ancient temples strewn throughout the idyllic countryside offer an array of cultural excursions.
