1. From Siem Reap: Battambang Highlights Day Tour
Discover Battambang, the capital of Battambang province, on a day tour from Siem Reap. Explore off the beaten path, visit the Psa Nat market, and take the bamboo train through the countryside. Begin your tour with a comfortable hotel pickup in Siem Reap and head to Battambang. Once you arrive, visit the ancient Ek Phnom Temple, dating from the Angkorian times. Marvel at its massive white stone Buddha statue before heading to the Rice Paper Local Factory. After learning the importance of rice paper and how it is made, stop in the Psa Nat market and grab a bite. Once you've tried all the traditional foods, head to the old colonial buildings that housed the Governor. See traditional costumes and historic photographs. Next, experience the famous bamboo train ride. Sit back and relax as you ride through the countryside and past local villages. Finish your tour of Battambang with a visit to Phnom Sompov (Sompov Mountain). Watch millions of bats leave the cave during the beautiful sunset before returning to your Seim Reap hotel.
