from Siem Reap to Battambang

by saoirse2002


I have read that the boat trip from Siem Reap to Battambang is worth doing.
Has anyone done this recently?

How long does it take?

Whats the best way to return to Siem Reap?

Can you suggest a place to stay in Battambang?

How long should one stay and what can one do there?

Yes, the trip is worth it. I did that route when I was in Cambodia. You may want to refer to my Cambodia page about the boat ride. You will get to see a lot of things during your journey.

Accommodation wise, not to worry as there will be many people recommending once you reach the jetty. Accommodation is very affordable, even for ensuite aircon room. There are a few budget hotels in the town centre of Battambang, near to the market. Visit the market in the evening when locals start to do their marketing.

Have fun in Cambodia.

It is a good experience to do SR-BTTin fast boat. As probably you will go in the roof take sun protection and some sandwiches
i stayed in the Royal hotel , near the market.We got two moto drivers and we visited all the countryside and the temples around
dnn´t miss the Bamboo Train
for the moto you may contact Thony in the Royal Hotel, speaks english and he is a good guide

The Boats are best during the high water season from Sept to January 6 hours From Chhong Khneas port. From Feb the river levels drop and the journey becomes longer and more difficult. By March it is beast avoided as it can take up to 12 hours with boat changes and road transfer, on a poor road to the city.

Teo Hotel in centre of town is the best in the City. Rooms are from $11 to $44 for suite rooms. There are plenty of small temples around. Banan is a hill temple with great views over the lovely country. It is worth spending 2 days. There are good road links to P Penh (bus 6 hours)and train (12 hours)if you want a real travel experience and have no worries about time!

The boat trip is definitely worth it provided the water levels are high enough. I took it just two weeks ago and it was great.

I wanted to go for the boat trip, my LP guide said it's good. And you get to see the floating village. Others I know agree. But I ran outta time and didn't make it there. If you've the time, you should go.

Travel Tips for Battambang

road and runner

by edachsund

erm... ;-0 I will probably ask them to get move fast out from there. I donno.... I saw Battambang was just a small province and seems I dont really like it. Maybe, other people have a different opinion about Battambang but me, just say, naahh....

If I choosen to be guide for a friend who willing to discover what the city provide for tourist, I will definately bring them to a center of market, school where children having fun-as education used to be banned sometimes ago, and try their local meal....

A Living Town....

by straightshooter

Battambang is very much a living town. Although second to Phnom Penh in population, it's still a very small town.

This is not a place to come and party. This isn't a backpacker's paradise. Don't expect to find quaint little cafes, craft and souvenir shops....Battambang isn't set up for tourism. It's a traditional small Cambodian town with dusty streets and slow living.

Battambang has occupied a very sad and tragic space in Cambodia's recent history with the Khmer Rouge. It's an area in recovery. There are many interesting things to explore outside of town.
But this is basic living in a rural area of jungle and farmland.

Go only if you want to appreciate and respect these conditions.

Battambang, second largest town of Cambodia

by sachara

Battambang is the name of the province in the northwest of the Cambodia, but also the name of its capital. Battambang is meaning 'loss of stick' referring to a legend of Preah Bat Dambang Kranhoung (Kranhoung Stick King).

Battambang is the second-largest city of Cambodia with good-preserved colonial architecture along the riverside. Battambang has a few hotels and is a good base for visiting the nearby hilltop temples, killing caves, rural area and villages.

In the town itself is not much to see, but the town has a relaxed and laid/back atmosphere to stroll around visiting the wats, the small museum with artefacts of the angkorian-era artefacts and the market.

sometimes you have a choice

by richiecdisc

Battambang would be worth a visit if even just for the French Colonial architecture and a visit to The White Rose restaurant, but there are lots of other reasons to head that way. It is one of the least spoiled tourist destinations I've come across with great opportunities to experience village life close to town. If you can't do that, enjoy the locals. They are a friendly lot and even the little kids making the begging rounds are worth corralling for a street side meal. There are some do’s and don’ts for the intrepid traveler, especially regarding how to treat beggars and in particular, children in admittedly bad circumstances trying to make a buck. Common sense should tell you giving kids candy would do little for their situation. Rotting teeth will only add to their calamities. Pencils and pens are now strewn across the Inca trail so well intended handouts do not always work much better than more thoughtless ones. So, what can you do? Simply ignoring them is one option though not always so easy and never much help for your conscience either. Sometimes, that is all you can do. But other times, you have a choice.

Confusing Place

by tabatha

The ride on the motorbike to the temple is a brilliant overview of the countryside life of Cambodian people. The funniest compliment of my life, made by my guide:
"you´re so beautiful because you´re so white and you have such a big noise !" WHAT ???
