One of the most scenic drives in Cambodia leads from Siem Reap to Battambang, on the banks of the Sangker River. This venerable old city holds a bumper crop of colonial-era architecture, ranging from antique shophouses in the market district to stately French villas lining the broad, leafy boulevards on the south side of town.

Aside from the quirky ‘Bamboo train’ and a few picturesque temples, the other ‘must see’ in Battambang is the home of the Phare Ponleu Selpak troupe. Anyone who enjoyed this company’s dazzling circus performances in Siem Reap shouldn’t miss the chance to watch its trainees being put through their paces. Disadvantaged youngsters from across the region come here to be schooled in dance, acrobatics, juggling and music.
