It is so sad to see the neglect of this old building by the provincial government. So much history and charm. This building could be a great attraction.

Just normal, yes bats are there, so if you are an animal fan take telescope with you, cause trees are quite high and long lens camera. Building is behind fence and I think you can see nicer old french era houses in country.

The Governer´s mansion is nothing special to watch, but the bats are spectacular. They are quite big, loud and plentiful. Make sure to watch their departure to the countryside shortly after sunset.

The bats seem to be getting all the love here, but this governor's mansion is the finest piece of colonial architecture that side of Siem Reap and Kampong Cham. It ought to be renovated (minimally) and turned into a museum. This could be wonderful it...More

The bat colony is not far from Kampong Thom center. Basically you go north along the main road and turn left on the street just before the river. Follow the river for about 300m and there should be a fairly large covered resting area on...More
