A lovely temple which feels very serene to walk round. Really enjoyed our time here. Older temple outside Battambang. Loved the old stupa here too.

This is one of the best photo opportunities I’ve seen during my visit to Battambang. The ancient ruins are surrounded by flowering plants of many different colours. The half day tour by Tuk Tuk was a highlight.

A giant buddha, 11th Century Hindu temple and a more recent temple are all worth seeing. Beautiful carvings in a clean environment.

Day Trip To Battambang Countryside (3 Replies)
We have 1 3/4 days in Battambang. We would like to hire a tuk tuk driver for one of those days in order to see the countryside. Here are some of the sites we have read about: Phnom Sampeau Phnom Banan Wat Ek Phnom Wat Baydamram Wat Samraong Knong Wat Kor village Which of these do you recommend for our day tour, and in what order? We like history, and don't mind long/steep hikes, and long hours of sightseeing. Also, on our 3/4 day, will the walking tour of the city of Battambang...More

I wasn't particularly impressed with any of the temples, but I enjoyed going up to them. A very irritating guide attached himself to us at the Killing Cave and ruined the mood with incessant irritation. Go to the circus if you are there are the right day. A cooking course at Nary's is fun, evening was convenient for us. Bamboo train is fun. We cycled everywhere, except up the hill to the killing cave.

Nary Kitchen have a lovely cooking class Battambang is flat and riding is easy. Take your own padlock and get a chain from whoever you hire the bike from. Are you travelling solo or with someone?

When you are travelling in a group, the best way to see the countrysight and the many sights around Battambang is probably with a Tuk-Tuk driver. We are a group of 4 and hired Rith the best Tuk-tuk driver ever to drive us around Battambang. The first day we started quite late in the afternoon and therefore Rith took us to the following attractions: We rode the legendary Bamboo Train which was a lot of fun and We saw the Phnom Sampeau Hill temple and the bat-cave at the bottom of the...More
