Full description
Depart from your hotel early in the morning and head from Siem Reap to Battambang province. Begin your day with a sightseeing tour around the city of Battambang along the Steung Sangké river. Pass Battambang's gorgeous French colonial buildings on the way to Odam Bang village. From there, take a bamboo train through the region's rice paddies. This province is known as the country's “rice barn”, as it is the leading rice-producing province in Cambodia. After enjoying a picnic lunch, head to the pretty village of Wat Kor and the hilltop temples of Phnom Sampeau and Phnom Banan. The area's limestone hills are dissected by a number of caves, and some still contain unexpected reminders of Cambodia's horrific Khmer Rouge regime. Travel back along the Steung Sangké river and discover the region's tropical fruit orchards and vegetables planted along the fertile riverbanks of Steung Sangké river on the way back to your hotel in Siem Reap.

The full day trip offers full value for money. As a solo traveler it was safe and convenient to let me transport to the locations and benefit from an English speaking and knowledgeable guide. The day includes everything from the Killing Field location at the Temple to the fun experience with the Bamboo Train. Highly recommend!

phenomenally fabulous and Sambath + driver are THE best

This is what I posted on Trip Advisor: Sambath is most probably the best ambassador one could dream of to discover the beauty, history and friendliness of Cambodia, Buddhism and the Khmer people. This was our first full day in Siem Reap and before doing the Angkor tours we opted to visit the province of Battambang. The best choice ever: fabulous landscapes, incredibly interesting people (we met the owner of a VERY old house built under the French colonial rule... what a delight... a traditional family heirloom). And of course the temples with the unruly macaques and the chanting monks, and last but not least, the bamboo train. A magical day with Sam and the best driver with nerves of steel. What a way to kick off our 25th wedding anniversary. Thumps up from every hand on the multi-armed god! Thank you Sam for a Cambodian delight.

Too expensive

Our guide Mork has been the best, very attentive and eager to teach us things and to continue learning Spanish (he already knows a lot). However, the almost € 80 that the excursion costs is not worth it. The only thing that is saved is the bamboo train ride, for which you can order a tuktuk to take you from Battambang
