What people are saying about Battambang
This is what I posted on Trip Advisor: Sambath is most probably the best ambassador one could dream of to discover the beauty, history and friendliness of Cambodia, Buddhism and the Khmer people. This was our first full day in Siem Reap and before doing the Angkor tours we opted to visit the province of Battambang. The best choice ever: fabulous landscapes, incredibly interesting people (we met the owner of a VERY old house built under the French colonial rule... what a delight... a traditional family heirloom). And of course the temples with the unruly macaques and the chanting monks, and last but not least, the bamboo train. A magical day with Sam and the best driver with nerves of steel. What a way to kick off our 25th wedding anniversary. Thumps up from every hand on the multi-armed god! Thank you Sam for a Cambodian delight.
Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and open about the history of the sites we visited, which included the killing caves, temples and a great local restaurant for lunch
