About Travel to Phnom Penh
Battambang is large city with a very relaxed atmosphere and lots of interesting old buildings dating back to the period when Battambang was part of France’s Indo-China Empire and also to the period immediately before that when Battambang was under the Control of neighbouring Thailand.
The central point of Battambang is its main market, Pasar Nat, which is located on a large public square. Most foreign visitors to the city stay in this area, and there are numerous inexpensive hotels with balcony views across the square. The streets leading off the square, particularly heading South feature lots of European style buildings, many housing Western run cafes and restaurants. Although Battambang is no longer part of a French colony many French people choose to live there and the French influence is evident in the local food, particularly the bakery products.
To the East of the main square in Battambang is the slow moving Sangkae River. It’s worth walking South along the peaceful riverside to reach the former Governor’s Residence, which is a grand European style building constructed during the era of Thai rule and now opened as museum. From the Governor’s Residence there is a bridge which leads to the other side of the river and some of the city’s most notable temples, such as Wat Sanker which features the ancient Sanker Pagoda, which is probably the oldest structure in the city.
Major Tourist Attractions in Battambang
Battambang City itself is pleasant and interesting but it doesn’t have any major historical sites. The most impressive places to visit in the area are outside Battambang City Centre and visitors will need to hire a vehicle to see them. The most famous of these attractions is Wat Ek Phnom, which is a large Angkor era temple located 9 km by road to the south of Battambang. Wat Ek Phnom has been less well maintained than the temples in the Angkor Archaeological Park (near Siem Reap) and for some visitors the lack of restoration makes this temple more special.
The other major tourist attraction in the area is Phnom Sampeau (Sampeau Hill). The hill has three large caves, feauring Buddhist staues and rock carvings. These caves were also used by the Khmer Rouge to kill people and there are some poignant reminder of these grim events on display. The upper most cave is full of bats which fly out in large numbers at sunset looking for insects. There is also a very grand modern Cambodian style temple with excellent wall murals at the top of the hill whcih you can visit at the same time.
