Battambang is a lovely small city in the northwestern Cambodia. In sense it is very similar to most cities in Cambodia, however, it has its own unique charm. Here as in most larger cities around the country we found some eroding colonial architecture and surprisingly not that much to explore. Nevertheless, there is something about Battambang that so many travelers enjoy!
Atmosphere in the city is laid back and travelers stop here for a couple day cruise back in time. Visiting museums hosting local Khmer temples artifacts situated in old colonial structures, getting a ride with a bamboo train which is using decommissioned railway outside of city center or relaxing in one of many cafes scattered through out the city. If visitors come here during the rainy season, they have a great chance to try a scenic river ride to Siem Reap. Battambang has a great and friendly small city vibe to it.
Best of luck planning your holidays in Cambodia!
