About Travel to Battambang


Battambang is Cambodia’s third largest city, with around 120,000 permanent residents, however, the atmosphere is relaxed and pleasant. Battambang is located in an attractive rural area with the wide slow moving Sangkae River passing through the centre of the city providing many scenic spots for local residents and visitors to escape the day time heat.

Battambang Central Market

The central point of the city is Pasar Nat (Battambang Central Market) around which are many of the city’s tourist hotels, bars and restaurants. Pasar Nat is just one of many French designed buildings in Battambang city centre.

French Influence on Battambang

Travelling south from the eastern end of the market square there is a large cluster of French style town houses, many of which have been converted into stylish cafes and restaurants. Battambang has a large community of long stay foreign residents and as a consequence Battmbang has lots of hotels, bar and restaurants focussed on catering for foreign visitors.

Tourism in Battambang

Battambang doesn’t have the same number of major attractions as Phnom Penh and Siem Reap, but it does have some more low key points of interest to explore. In the city centre the main attractions are the Central Market (Pasar Nat), the grand former Governor’s Residence, and Sangke Pagoda. The two best known local tourist attractions, however, are both located around 15 km by road from the centre of Battambang.

Phnom Sampov

To the south west is Phnom Sampov which a small hill featuring a temple and a series of caves which the Khmer Rouge used for murdering local people during the second half the 1970s.

Wat Ek Phnom

To the north of Battmbang is Wat Ek Phnom, which is a Hindu temple constructed in the 11th Century during the era of the Angkor regime. Wat Ek Phnom is less well preserved than the more famous temples of the Angkor Archaeological Park, but it also receives far fewer visitors and it that respect provides a more pleasant experience for those visitors who do make it to Wat Ek Phnom.
