Day : Battambang Countryside Full Day

08:00 Pick up at your hotel in Battambang then start the tour in the morning with a ride on the famous 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.

After this unique experience we will 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.

14:00 Have lunch and relax.

Continue the route, we drive through small villages and between rice fields in our tuktuk towards Phnom Sompov Mountain. The mountain is about 140 meters high and there are a total of 800 steps to reach the top. We will avoid climbing up the steps and take a motorbike to drive up the first part of the mountain to visit the temples, shrines, and killing caves used during the Khmer Rouge period. We will be able to look over all of Battambang and enjoy the vast and beautiful scenery.

We will end our journey before sunset by walking down the mountain steps and visiting the “Bat cave” – thousands of bats flying out of their caves in the mountain side at dusk. Back in town by tuktuk.

18:00 Tour ends.
