Your Itinerary

Bamboo Train Battambang

Take a ride on the traditional Bamboo Train, a bamboo platform laid over 2 sets of wheels on a single track. In the old days this was used to transport goods between Battambang and Phnom Penh and was a typical mode of transport for farmers and villagers. Today, it takes you through the beautiful countryside to a little village you can explore on foot before returning to your starting point.

Admission Included

Wat Banan Temple

Climb the 365 stairs to marvel at Wat Banan, an Angkor era temple which sits on top of a hill close to the Sanker river. Banan is seldom frequented by tourists and outside of Cambodian holidays it is likely that you may be the only visitor.

Admission Included

Phnom Sampeau

Scale the side of a mountain leading to the 'secret bat cave' just before sunset where you will sit atop the mountain waiting for the millions of bats located inside the cave to awake. Marvel as this seemingly never-ending stream of fruit bats fly out of the cave and off into the countryside for their evening meal.

Han was an amazing tour guide who was very generous with both his time and his knowledge of this incredible part of Cambodia. He provided detailed insights into many of the places we visited as well as personal stories that made history come alive. Han showed us many places that were not on the actual itinerary but really enhanced the whole experience. I would highly recommend this tour. Oh, and he's the best looking tuk tuk driver in Battambang!
