About
Battambang is one of Cambodia’s most under rated destinations. Located 3 hours to the south of Siem Reap, this is a stunning countryside destination in an area known as the ‘rice bowl’ of the country. You will travel from Siem Reap to Battambang in a private air-conditioned car or van and then switch to a tuk tuk for your day tour. Your day tour will begin with a village visit, driving a little off-road to see the fishing village, local plantations and including a ride on the Bamboo Train. From here your guide will take you on to Wat Banan temple, climbing all 365 stairs to reach the temple plateau, followed by a stop at the infamous Killing Caves. Your last stop for the day is Phnom Sampeav, famed for its bat caves. Your guide will take you to his secret mountain spot where you will have a short climb to the top. As the sun sets, watch the millions of bats fly out for their evening meal before returning to Siem Reap.

The bamboo trains are nothing like the pictures show.
Dec 2019 • Solo
While still fun, it's very much a ride at this point. Almost like a 1 attraction theme park. $5 gets you a 10 minute ride in a professionally built cart, then you get out and go back 10 minutes later.

The killing caves were fantastic and really revealing of the evil of Pol Pot and communism.

Dear Jason, I agree with you 100% about the Banan Bamboo Train experience which is why we don't offer this on our tours of Battambang, ever!! I am assuming that you wanted to review that particular experience and instead, you found our full day tour that mentions the Bamboo Train as part of it... But in actual fact, the Bamboo Train that we use on this tour is the 'old Bamboo Train' which is a completely different experience and much more enjoyable. Thanks for allowing me to highlight this, as your review above is absolutely the reason that I have created our experience not to include the Banan Bamboo Train! Kind Regards, Jay Austin Founder Adventure Travel Co.

Wonderful trip!
Oct 2019
I booked this one day trip to Battambang when I was in Siem Reap, and this is also my first time in Cambodia. Such a beautiful country! Such lovely people!

In this tour, I was transferred from Siem Reap by car, and met our lovely tour guide/Tuk Tuk driver Kim when we arrived Battambang. We started our trip from a bit city sightseeing, saw the French colonial architecture as well as the one and only Italian building, then we took the famous Bamboo train, visited local fishing village, understand how they run local business. We also visited Wat Banan Temple, the Killing Cave which I learnt more Cambodia history from.

Our tour guide Kim is very knowledgeable and speaks prefect English. He walked us through the sad but unforgettable history about Battambang. We were shocked by what happened in the past but also amazed by Cambodian people's strong, unbroken and uplifting spirit. Kim is also very thoughtful, he rented a Jeep for my parents so they didn't need to walk steep mountain road.

We had very special lunch in a local countryside restaurant and finished our tour by watching sunset in Phnom Sampeau. Such a wonderful experience! Thank you so much Jay, Adventure Travel Co, I would like to recommend this tour if you ever want to visit Battambang, and you must meet Kim, a dedicated local Tuk Tuk driver/ guide.

Brilliant combination of culture, history and nature. Excellent, friendly tour guide with fantastic local knowledge. Felt like we experienced ‘the real’ Cambodia. Highlight of the day was definitely watching the bats under a perfect sunset away from the crowds.

Great tour of Battambang, lovely driver, fun times!
May 2019 • Friends
We have just returned from a really fun trip to Battambang arranged by Adventure Travel Co. The team were super friendly and helpful in helping us arrange an overnight here. We arrived early afternoon and were greeted by our lovely driver Kim. Kim took us for lunch and then off on tour. He explained about the local sites we saw and about the local culture and stopped off at some interesting spots in Battambang. We s some lovely temples and Kim explained some of the local folk law from the region, he also did some fabulous animal impressions and indulged our love of animals stopping off to pet everything that crossed our paths! Whilst the Killing Cave is a tragic place it is very important to understand the history of Cambodia and we felt it important to see this. We loved sunset, drinking ice cold coconuts watching millions of bats coming out of the cave. A fabulous trip. The ever friendly Jay and team also arranged our accommodation at Pomme Hostel. A great little place with a lovely atmosphere and friendly owners. Thanks so much Jay, Adventure Travel co and Pomme Hostel!

Dear Gemma, Thank you for your kind words, we are so glad that you enjoyed your time with Mr Kim in Battambang! It is a lovely part of Cambodia that so few take the time to experience, so it is always lovely to be able to help people arrange their visit to this fantastic little town. Safe travels, Jay Adventure Travel Co.
