Battambang is an excellent place to experience the beauty of the Cambodia countryside. I recommend that you arrive by boat off the Tonle Sap Lake from Siem Reap. I was very fortunate to have stayed at Phka Villa. With its relaxed feel, its a great place to unwind and breath in the countryside air. The staff are kind hearted. The stories they share are, as you can imagine given the recent history of the region, gripping. The food is delicious as well, reminding me more of a home cooked meal than that of a restaurant catering to westerners. The tuk tuk drivers are extremely accommodating, which is quiet nice after being riddled by tuk tuk drivers in Siem Reap and Phnom Penh. I also highly recommend seeing the Battambang circus, as it is world class. The Phka Villa is an exceptional place to begin your Battambang experience.
