About Travel to Battambang
With a population of over 120,000 permanent residents, Battambang is the second largest city in Cambodia. Despite its relatively large size, Battambang is a very relaxed place and quite unlike Phnom Penh. Battambang city centre is a grid of streets with a large central square where the main market, Pasar Nat, is located along with the city’s most lively bar and restaurants, and a range of foreigner friendly hotels. The main street in the city runs parallel to a wide slow moving river. There is a promenade along the river, as well as several cafes and parks. For the residents of Battambang, the riverside is the place to come and relax. To the south of the main square is a cluster of streets with European style buildings where Battambang’s boutique cafes and restaurants are mostly located.
Battambang has been occupied by foreign powers for a large part of the last millennium following the collapse of the Khmer Empire of Angkor Wat. The longest occupation was by Thailand, and the city has lots of examples of Thai architecture. In 1907 Battambang became part of France’s Indochina colonial empire and the French influence on the city is now much more noticeable than the Thai influence. The city still has a large French ex-pat community and French style cuisine is widely available across the city, particularly bread and pastries which the local Khmer community have largely adopted as part of their own cuisine. There are some interesting, but not world famous, sights to see in Battambang city centre such as the former Governor’s Residence and the mysterious Sangke Pagoda. The more interesting sights, such as Phnom Sampeau and Wat Ek Phnom, are located 10 to 15 km from Battambang city centre.
