Tailor-made Battambang Holidays

Despite being the second most populated city in Cambodia, Battambang has managed to stay out of the spotlight from a tourist perspective. Less chaotic than the capital while still boasting a collection of charming colonial architecture and ancient temples, Battambang feels more like a town than a city and, although vast in size, is easily navigated. Here you will experience a totally different side of Cambodia and have the opportunity to discover what daily life is like in this rural province.

The locals relish in taking the time to make visitors feel welcome in their city, asking nothing more than friendship in return. Sip coffee with your tuk-tuk driver, listen to their incredible life stories and learn first-hand about the history of Battambang from the 11th Century through to present day. Known as the ‘rice bowl’ of Cambodia, head to the countryside outside the city and see how locals make their livelihood producing rice paper and wine in addition to fish paste, dried bananas and fruit leather. A UNESCO city of performing arts, you’ll find a number of art projects for young people across Battambang and visitors are invited to take guided tours, buy handmade produce and watch energetic performances from the students at the renowned Phare Circus School.

While Battambang may not have the acclaim of Siem Reap or even Phnom Penh, it’s a city full of stories that will stay with you forever. Ask our experts about adding a stay onto your Cambodia itinerary.
