Battambang snaps

Battambang

There isn’t a whole lot to do in Battambang, but that’s part of the charm. Cambodia’s second-largest city is pretty small, and the centre can be covered easily in an hour or two—if you can make it past all the trendy little bars and cafes without stopping. That was the hard part for us, but once we escaped the happy hours and homemade rum, we were able to hire another scooter, hit the road, and get lost in all the temples, fish, crocodiles and cheer we could handle.
