Continue your Cambodia travel guide from Siem Reap as you head to Battambang, also situated in the northwest. It's a sleepy town with a relaxed attitude and the region is Cambodia's major rice producer. If you want a break from bus journeys, why not take a boat? It will be slow but crowded but will give you a feel of rural Cambodia.
Visite de la station climatique, de grottes, de rizières, d'une plantation de poivre, rando à Kep.
Our next stop was 124 kms away. It is a small town in northeastern Cambodia. It is relatively remote and you won’t usually find tourists here. Our sole purpose to come here was to ride through the countryside and discover the many remote roads. We spent the entire day cycling around remote villages along the sides of Mekong River. You can ask for directions from the locals to catch up on some musical performance. It is a very quiet town and I surely enjoy a day travelling across this tiny town.
The impressive Banteay Srei stands 30Km from Siem Reap and its modern name means the ‘citadel of beauty’ and correctly so. It is the most intricately carved structure of the time made of red sandstone. The best time to visit the temple is late afternoon when the sun’s rays fall at a slant giving this structure a pinkish-golden hue.

Visite des risières et village environnant. Balade dans un village flottant.
The majority of people, locals and foreigners alike, who visit Kulen Mountain do so as a day trip from Siem Reap. You can drive to the top or hike from the foot of the mountain in about 2 hours. The hike does give you the option to see a couple of things en-route that you may otherwise miss such as: Elephant statues - symbols of Hinduism stands at the foot of Mount Kulen. Preah Ang Jub - is reached via muddy tracks, obstacles such as fallen trees and roots and challenging steps. It has a pool of sacred water whose source is at the top of the mountain. Buddha devotees offer prayers here. On our day trip, due to limited time we skipped the hike. Instead we drove straight up the mountain to the car park. From this point you can either walk or drive (or a combination of the two) between the different things there are to see and do. Preah Ang Thom and the Reclining Buddha
The former capital of Cambodia from 1618 to 1866, Oudong is situated around 40km or so from the now capital city Phnom Penh. Stupas and shrines still stand tall from the ancient kings. Oudong also called Udong is a beautiful place to go especially if you are interested in discovering Cambodia’s history.
