2 Days / 1 Night - Tour
Phnom Penh to Siem Reap via Battambang
Kingdom of Cambodia

Day 1 Phnom Penh - Battambang
Departure from Phnom Penh with domestic flight to Battambang (flight schedules are subject to change but normally there is a daily morning flight). Your tour guide will meet you upon arrival and transfer you to your hotel. The pleasant town of Battambang is Cambodia's second biggest city. Located on the banks of Sangker River it retains some of its French colonial charm. The town was first settled by the Khmers in the 11th Century but was at many times in history annexed by Siam (Thailand). As recently as 1947, the Thais officially gave the province back to Cambodia. The town is now an important center for international aid and demining efforts. After check-in we will stroll through Battambang and visit the lively local market. Late morning we will enjoy a scenic drive along the river, through the back streets and rural areas of Battambang, to Wat Ek Phnom. This temple is a pre-Angkor monument and certain parts of it are still in good condition. Lunch at local restaurant.

This afternoon we will drive (approximately 45 minutes) out of town to Phnom Sampeou, a pleasant drive through a wide plain of rice paddies. We will walk uphill for about 15 minutes and then take a path into the jungle to see a unique Buddhist monastery built in caves. There are several big caves and we will climb through them (quite narrow) and find our way out of the caves close to the top of the hill. From the top of Phnom Sampeou we have a great view over the whole area and there is a temple housing the body of Lon Nol (former Cambodian Prime Minister) who died in the sixties. Dinner at local restaurant. Accommodation at Theo Hotel, Battambang.

Day 2 Battambang - Siem Reap
Breakfast. Early morning, transfer to the jetty and take the public ferry boat from Battambang to Siem Reap. The boat's departure time varies but it is usually early morning. Your tour guide will accompany you on the boat as he is from Siem Reap. The boat trip takes approximately 3 hours. Upon arrival at Chhong Kneas port, transfer to your hotel in Siem Reap town. Please note that this boat does not operate if water levels are too low - normally from April to June.
