The "Harbour" in Battambang

After a fantastic boattrip fron Siem Rep (8 hours without a toilet) we entered the second largest town in Cambodia.
Battambang didn´t had much to offer but I´m glad that I made the trip, most because of the boattrip from Siem Rep.
Battambang has a few hotels and some restaurants and pubs, the French colonization is very present and You can find very nice and cheap things along the river, You can also make some trips by moto for some excursions.
We only stayed for 2 days and we have some nice memories anyway.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Relaxing and calm and the boatrip in both directions
  • Cons:Not much to do
  • In a nutshell:A nice stop on Your way between Thailand and Angkor Wat
  • Last visit to Battambang: Feb 2004

    Another destination we missed last trip. Cambodia is a place out on its own for lasting visual memories - not always great!

    Wow! that is really a que! good photos, stories and interesting comments, thanks. You did a great service by mentioning the hotel supplying the paper work for the Vietnam visa.

    Nice pictures, stories and travelogues. Especially the floating village looks great.

    I'll never forget the hectic mess in the Bat harbour. They tried to overcharge nearly everybody. But I still love the city and your pics
