Enjoy a walking tour through the city’s bustling boulevards lined with quaint French colonial buildings. Next we will visit the infamous cave, Phnom Sampov, used as an execution field under the Khmer Rouge. Take a slow 30 minute ride on the Bamboo train. The bamboo train is a 2.5m x 4m raft-like device that is made from bamboo for local villagers to transport their goods. There is only one track used for both directions so if you see someone coming in the other direction the drivers will have to decide which train has the lightest load. The train with the lighter load or fewer passengers has to unload their goods and people and dismantle off the track to let the other train by. Back to your hotel in the late afternoon.
Accommodation: Hotel in Battambang.
Day 2: Battambang Sightseeing – Siem Reap
We will start our tour at 8am in the morning to explore the north of Battambang and drive up to Ek Phnom Temple which was built in the 11th century. On the way we will stop to visit the villagers and see how they produce local products such as fish paste, sticky rice, rice wine, rice papers, noodles, and clay pots which are commonly used in the countryside to collect rainwater.
We will also get a chance to learn more about the Khmer Rouge when we visit the Well of Shadows, a monument to honor the people killed during the war. Near the monument we will take the opportunity to visit the hundreds of Fruit Bats that hang on trees producing a loud and interesting noise.
After lunch at your own account, our guide and driver will take you back to Siem Reap.
