Arrival in Phnom Penh
  • 9.00 am - Arrival & check-in to Number 9 hotel - $17 per night. Staying for 2 nights (total cost - $34). It was comfy and clean, however one thing I didn't like was that the bathroom I got wasn't fully enclosed. It tends to get very humid after I take a shower

  • Wanted to take the public bus initially, but changed my mind after hearing plenty of bad experiences with them

Pre-day

  • 9.00 am - Arrive at Choeung Ek Genocidal Center. Paid the entrance fee - $5 (inclusive of audio guide)
  • My experience so far has been pretty humbling. Given the tranquility of the place, it's hard to imagine that so many atrocities have been committed here

Audio guides are provided if you want to learn more about the killing fields. A bit of warning though, some of the audio entries can be quite depressing

Around Battambang
  • Asked the tuk-tuk driver to quote me for a day trip around Battambang. Agreed price - $15 (negotiated down from $20)
  • 2.10 pm - Stopped by at Kinyei cafe nearby for some coffee. There were plenty of good reviews about this place, so I thought I'd give it a try
  • Coffee - Macchiato ($1.50)
  • 2.30 pm - Quick tour of Battambang. Visited the following points of interest:
  • Naga statue. An interesting sculpture put together from weapon parts
  • Old stone bridge (Thmor Chas)
  • Governor's palace
  • Ta Dumbong statue. My tuktuk driver shared with me his version of the tale of Ta Dumbong. Legend has it there was once a man who had a magic stick, given to him by a divine. One day, he used the magic stick to stir rice in a goblet, and turned black once he ate it. He angrily threw the stick away and Battambang came to be where the stick landed

Bamboo Train
  • 3.00 pm - Ride tuk-tuk to starting point of Battambang bamboo train. Upon arrival there, you will be greeted by a tourist police who will guide you through the ropes and collect payment from you if you wish to ride the bamboo train
  • Ride bamboo train to the village on the other end of the tracks (under 30 minutes) - $10 
  • It normally costs $5 per person if you come in a group, however I had to pay $10 since I came alone
  • Occasionally, you have to get off while your bamboo train is disassembled and taken off the track momentarily to give way to oncoming bamboo trains. There seems to be a rule to this, it all depends on how many passengers there are on each bamboo train. The one with lesser passengers will have to give way (in my case, that meant plenty of stops and getting off for me :D)
  • 3.30 pm - Arrival at the village. Walked around the place for a bit. Although I did bump into the occasional pushy lot who are trying to peddle their wares, the village folk were generally very friendly
  • 4.00 pm - Ride bamboo train back to starting point (under 30 minutes). Tipped the driver before getting off - $2

Phnom Sampeau
  • 4.30 pm - Ride tuk-tuk to Phnom Sampeau
  • 5.00 pm - Upon arrival there, my tuk-tuk driver introduced me to a guide who offered to take me up the hill on his motorcycle for a modest fee. Agreed price - $4 (inclusive of the $3 entrance fee, which I thought was a pretty good deal)
  • Ride motorcycle to the top of the hill (under 10 minutes). The view from the top is breathtaking, especially during sunset
  • Visited several points of interest, which included the killing caves and the monastery located on top of the hill
  • 6.00 pm - Ride motorcycle back down. Tipped the guide as a thank you for his services - $1
  • Walk to a nearby cave (under 5 minutes) to watch thousands of bats flying out in search of food. There seemed to be no fixed time for this (I waited around 15 minutes before my viewing), however your best bet would be around 6-7pm
  • 6.20 pm - Met up with my tuk-tuk driver and ride out to a nearby rice field by the roadside to watch streams of flying bats forming serpent-like patterns in the sky

Phare Ponleu Selpak
  • 6.30 pm - Ride tuk-tuk to Phare Ponleu Selpak, a well-known circus in Battambang, performed by young adults only on Mondays and Thursdays
  • 7.00 pm - Arrival at the entrance. Went to the ticketing counter and bought a ticket for the 7 pm show - $10
  • Fortunately, the show started a bit late that evening, so I was able to catch the full show. Do come early if you want to get front row seats though, as it was pretty packed by the time I came
  • If you happen to miss it, another alternative is Phare, The Cambodian Circus in Siem Reap (an off-shoot of Phare Ponleu Selpak) which has shows at 8pm daily

Phare Ponleu Selpak. The best seats were already taken by the time I got there. Come early to avoid disappointment.

  • 9.00 pm - Walk to Street 121 (Battambang Pub Street) for dinner. There isn't much nightlife to be found here, as most establishments in Battambang close early

  • 10.30 pm - Head back to hotel

 Getting from Battambang to Siem Reap by boat
  • 6.00 am - Wake up, pack up and hotel check-out
  • Ride motorcycle taxi (arranged by hotel) to the jetty (located north of town) - $5
  • 7.00 am - Arrival at the jetty. The boat departed a bit later that day as the operator was waiting for more passengers to arrive
  • 7.45 am - Ride Angkor Express boat from Battambang to Siem Reap
  • The journey along the Sangker river can be described as very scenic, from vast plains to floating villages to an immense lake (the largest in Southeast Asia), all of which provide plenty of photo opportunities. The occasional sightings of children waving and rural folk going about their daily lives made the trip all that much more memorable
  • Be prepared for a very long day though, as the journey itself takes 8-10 hours. If you're not into excruciatingly slow boat rides, take the bus instead (only 3-4 hours, costs about $7)
  • 12.00 pm - Stopover for lunch on a floating shop
  • Lunch - Mixed rice (12,000 riel)

Srah Srang & Banteay Kdei
