We arrived in Battambang on a rainy Thursday evening and found ourselves in Gecko Bar (well worth a visit for good cocktails). Having left the hustle of Siem Reap we were a little underwhelmed by the location and turned to Tripadvisor for advice. We contacted Bart and arranged to be collected the following day by his charming son who showed us the sites and gave us an invaluable insight into the area. We would highly recommend the Bamboo train and killing caves (although uncomfortable, it provides an insight into the atrocities the country has experienced). The highlight was the cooking class at the family home where we were made to feel welcome and learned to cook some of the best food we ate on our trip. If you find yourself in Battambang get in touch with Bart, it will be one of your best and most memorable experiences of Cambodia. It was certainly ours.
