12:00 Pick up at your hotel in Battambang then start the tour in the afternoon 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 south of Battambang and drive to Cultural Village (Wa Kor Village) - the “homeland” for many Khmer traditional houses. Along the way, you will have chance to pass by Swing Bridgeon river.
Continue the route, we will see the Fruit bat and bat tree then Following the path to the top of a mountain, Wat Banan Temple will appear in front of you with an amazing scenery surrounding.
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 Phnon Sampeau Temple, 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.
18:00 Tour ends at Battambang town.
