Battambang walking tour…
Battambang city is Cambodia’s second largest city, and is known as the heart of Cambodia’s rice country – surrounded by a countryside of rice fields. Battambang is a peaceful and pleasant place to visit and relax. Battambang has historically been off the map for visitors, but roads and guesthouses have recently improved, making Battambang a great place to visit to learn about real Cambodian life. Highlights of the town include the many examples of French colonial architecture, and the Buddhist temples (Wat) that were built more than 300 years ago. The main parts of the city are situated close to the Sangkae River, a tranquil, small body of water that winds its way through Battambang Province and offers a pleasant, picturesque setting.
The greatest way to understand Battambang is by learning about the city’s culture, religion, and history through a walking tour with a local!
