Day 6:
Today, we’ll leave Siem Reap and travel to Battambang. In the rainy season, we can choose to make a boat trip. Depending on the water level of the river, the trip will last for 5 to 8 hours. However, if we take the boat, we will have to get up early, because we should depart from the hotel at 6 o’clock. Having to rise early is rewarded with a beautiful boat trip that allows you to intensely enjoy life on the riverbanks. We’ll see people bathing, children fetching water and animals wading through this important source of life. If the water level is too low, the boat trip is unfortunately not possible and we’ll have to travel by taxi. This drive will take approximately 3 hours.

This is a very unique and fun ride that you must experience while in Battambang! After we have our lunch in small huts along the Stung Sangke River we drive through small villages and between rice fields in our bus towards Phnom Sompov Mountain. The mountain is about 140 meters high and there are a total of 800 steps to reach the top. At the top you will se shrines and killing caves used during the Khmer Rouge period. We will be able to look over all of Battambang and enjoy the vast and beautiful scenery. We will end our journey before sunset by walking down the mountain steps and visiting the “bat army” – thousands of bats flying out of their caves in the mountain side at dusk.
