Leave Siem Ream on a drive through the beautiful Cambodian countryside for charming, relaxed Battambang. Go to the small temple at ‘Ship Hill’ and enjoy a picnic lunch looking out onto a landscape of lush rice fields and sugar palm trees. The area is also a reminder of the country’s turbulent history, as it is home to the notorious ‘Killing Caves’ of Khmer Rouge times.

Let your guide lead the way through local farms and villages to a mountain top temple where you can wander around its scented flowering trees and take in the view of the countryside. Learn more about local life as you visit some of the area’s villages. See how rice-paper is produced, along with Cambodian specialty foods including prahoc, the fermented fish paste which lends its unique flavor to much Cambodian cuisine.
