Living There

Battambang is Cambodia's second most populous city and a popular tourist destination due to the many nearby ancient temples, Bat Cave, Buddhist shrines, and Norry, the 'bamboo train'. It is also the capital city of the Battambang province. It is popular with tourists because of it's blend of modern city, small-town friendliness, and some well-preserved colonial architecture, which works together to give the town a unique charm. To Cambodians, the city is known as the best city for education besides PhnomPenh. There are quite a few well known schools and universities, both public and private.
