following is just a partial list of things to see. Ray Zepp's Around Battambang
is required reading for anybody who wants to explore the Battambang area. This
100 page book is an invaluable guide to the Battambang's pagodas, sights and
tales, containing practical, descriptive and historical information presented in
Mr. Zepp's inimitable 'just there yesterday' style. The book is available for $5
at hotels, restaurants and shops around Battambang. Proceeds go to the Monk's
Train: The bamboo train is a unique and creative form of ad-hoc local
transportation. It consists of a small (perhaps 2.5m x 4m), motorcycle
engine-powered bamboo cart that rides the railroad rails picking up and dropping
off passengers, cargo, animals, motorcycles along the way. When it meets on
on-coming train or bamboo train, it can be disassembled and taken off the rails
in a minute or two, allowing the other to pass. When touring the countryside ask
your driver to take you to a rail crossing where you can meet a bamboo train to
take a ride.
In partnership with Asian Trails, the Phare Ponleu Selpak NGO gives the
opportunity to Cambodian children from poor and disabled families to “have
access to culture via different artistic activities” including music, drawing
and circus. See traditional Cambodian circus acts daily beginning at 7:00PM.
US$6 admission. Contact Asian Trails (Tel/Fax: 053-730088 in Battambang, or
023-216555 in Phnom Penh), or the Phare Ponleu Selpak office
Tour: The rural countryside outside of Battambang is National
Geographic picturesque. Within just a few kilometers of town the countryside
turns into small villages filled with stilted houses and rice paddies that
stretch to the horizon. You’ll see plenty of countryside on the way to any of
the local sites. Check out some of the local products in the making-rice paper,
noodles and the fishpaste market. It’s all very traditional if not a bit
unhygienic and smelly. The roads are often rough and always exceptionally dusty.
Bring a good hat and a krama to cover your nose and mouth.
Phnom: Is an 11th century Angkorian ruin built as a Hindu temple under
Suryavarman I. The temple consists of prasats on a platform with some carvings
in pretty good condition. Wat Ek Phnom, a modern pagoda, sits next to the ruin.
The river road drive to Ek Phnom from Battambang passes through some absolutely
Banan: Is a mountain top, 11th century Angkorian ruin consisting of
five prasats. Peaceful location with a nice view of the area. Also L’Ang But
Meas cave. Very old (150 years+) active pagoda at the base of the mountain.
Both Battambang town and the surrounding countryside are replete with pagodas,
some of them very old and respected. See Around Battambang for complete
information about visiting the local pagodas.
Sampeou Mountain: Steeped in legend, and topped by Wat Sampeou and a
group of caves used as ‘killing caves’ by the Khmer Rouge, containing the
skeletal remains of their victims. The wat is unexceptional but the view is
spectacular. Ask about the legend of Neang Rumsay Sok.
Nath: In the center of town is the main phsar (traditional market) and
is geared to the locals, sporting the usual variety of fruits, vegetables, meat,
clothes, sundries, food stalls, etc. Gem dealers, a couple of banks, photo shops
and moneychangers line the streets that ring the phsar. Phsar Leu, just south of
town, seems to be the place to buy the local specialties: oranges and pomelos
from Pursat province. The oranges are said to be the best oranges in the
Heang Drink Shop: On the west side of Phsar Nath offers ice cream bars,
cheeses, yogurt, wines, and other imported items.
goods: Marble sculpture from Pursat province, woodcarvings from
Battambang and sapphires from Pailin dominate the souvenir market in Battambang.
Many of the hotels as well as the small souvenir/art/curios shops on Road #1 on
the river in the center of town offer a selection of wood and marble products.
The art shops have a better selection than the hotels and a couple have very
interesting collections of curios, old trinkets, coins, antiques and oddities -
well worth a look.
sapphires and rubies mined in Pailin near the Thai border are brought to
Battambang to be graded, cut and polished. There are some good deals on stones
in Battambang but be very careful when buying. Fake and low quality jewel scams
are common so you need to know gemology or know your gem dealer very well. Gem
and gold dealers are located in the center of Psah Nath, in little shops
surrounding the psah, and in a few shops on Road #1.
are Internet shops all over town but most seem to specialize in Internet phone.
If you want to check email or surf the web the best shop is KCT Internet on Road
#1 on the river. Teo Hotel also has a small Internet shop. Access is relatively
fast and stable. $1-$1.50/hr. Most hotels and Internet shops offer international
telephone. Most internet shops offer very inexpensive internet phone.
