BEYOND ANGKOR: BATTAMBANG AND ITS COUNTRYSIDE

Discover the relaxed charm of Battambang, Cambodia’s second-largest city; filled with friendly people and old colonial architecture. Visit the notorious ‘Killing Caves’ of Khmer Rouge times, learn about local village life as you explore the surrounding area and take a bike tour led by an expert local Backyard Travel guide around the town center.



Leave Siem Ream on a drive through the beautiful Cambodian countryside for charming, relaxed Battambang. Go to the small temple at ‘Ship Hill’ and enjoy a picnic lunch looking out onto a landscape of lush rice fields and sugar palm trees.

The area is also a reminder of the country’s turbulent history, as it is home to the notorious ‘Killing Caves’ of Khmer Rouge times. Let your guide lead the way through local farms and villages to a mountain top temple where you can wander around its scented flowering trees and take in the view of the countryside.

Visit Phare Ponleu Selpak - School of Music, Visual & Performing Arts which utilizes various arts to provide education, support and entertainment to the poor communities and was founded by eight ex-refugees from Anchanh Village as a non-profit NGO. Catch a performance of their budding artists and be amazed by their talents.

Learn more about local life as you visit some of the area’s villages. See how rice-paper is produced, along with Cambodian specialty foods including prahoc, the fermented fish paste which lends its unique flavor to much Cambodian cuisine. You’ll also visit a weaving and handicraft center to learn about various traditional textile production processes.
