This is a two-day tour. We can arrange accommodation for you, recommend a place to you, or let you arrange your own place to stay in Battambang.
We will start the drive to Battambang just after breakfast around 7:30 or 8:00. Along the way, we will stop at Banteay Chhmar which is around 60km north of the main road from Siem Reap to Battambang.
This huge temple has satellite shrines and a massive reservoir and it’s was one of the most important temples from the Angkor period. It’s also one of the least understood temples and not much is known about the history. It is known that it was built in the later 12th or early 13th century during the reign of King Jayavarman VII and that it was the site of Yasovarman I’s failed invasion attempt of Champa. This mysterious, yet fascinating temple is a long way from the tourist trails and there will be few other people exploring this magnificent site.
We will then continue the drive to Battambang, check in to your hotel, and let you relax for a while. In the evening, we can explore this laid-back city and get a bite to eat in one of the many restaurants in town.
On the second day, we will check out of the hotel and drive to see where they produce spring rolls, ride the bamboo train, and go to see Banan temple. This temple is located around 20km out of Battambang and features a stunning hilltop temple and many caves. It was built in the 11th century as a Hindu temple, but was later converted to Buddhist temple.
We will then head to a local winery where you can taste some of the delicious wines on offer. The winery is located on the road to Siem Reap and from here we will start the 3-hour drive back to Siem Reap. When we arrive in Siem Reap, we will drop you back at your hotel or at any other location in Siem Reap town.
This is a two-day tour and you will need accommodation in Battambang. We can arrange suit accommodation in your price range or recommend a place to stay. Alternatively, you can make your own arrangements.
