moto scooter battambang


I have 7 days in Cambodia on a second trip and thinking of a couple of nights in battambang

I believe the caves, temples etc are a bit out of town in both directions

wondering if anyone has hired a scooter for the day and seen the sights by themselves without a driver

am I right that they are both north and south of battambang following the river?

I stayed at Battambang Resort that had free bicycles. Cycled to Bamboo train, Caves, Wat Banan, plus bird watching along the river. Cycling over suspension bridges was fun. Only used tuk-tuks for evening entertainment - (circus and cooking course)

hi lamlee

bicycle would be great way to see, I thought the caves etc were quite a distance

were they far out of town?

did you think battambang was worth the stay? or you found other places more interesting?

BB is well worth a couple of nights. We stayed for 5 nights in March this year.

The caves are a long way out of town, especially by pushbike...


The bats come out at dusk, so your cycle back to BB will be in the dark.

When we went to see the spectacle it started to rain an hour before the big event, and the rain never stopped, and when it rains the bats don't put on their show. So we were disappointed, although we had had a good day out, but in the comfort of a tuk tuk.

Wat Banan...


Bamboo Train...


After the bamboo train you're only minutes from glorious national Geographic quality countryside, and small villages along the river and on a dusty road.
