Battambang and Tonlé Sap

Visit Battambang and Tonlé Sap


The area around Siem Reap is well worth exploring after enjoying the delights of Angkor.

The riverside city of Battambang comes complete with splendid French colonial architecture, nearby ruins and the popular ‘Bamboo Train'.

Boat journeys on Cambodia's great freshwater lake, the Tonlé Sap, and its feeder rivers are among the best ways of seeing this fertile region of paddy fields and floating villages.
