tour details

A unique tour that combines walking and cycling with a boat ride.

tour description

At 7:45 hours pick up by tuk tuk to take you to the bike shop. On arrival, listen to an introduction about the program for the day, choose your bike and complete a bike and helmet fitting.

At 8:00 hours start with a short walking tour of Psar Nat, the huge Art Deco building which covers the local central market, and then continue to look at some of the colonial architecture.

After the walk, board a local wooden boat to cross the Sangke River and explore a Buddhist monastery and pagoda. Gain some insights into a monk's daily life, and join them in prayer while receiving a blessing. Then walk, accompanied by the monks, back to the boat and say goodbye so you can begin the second part of your heritage journey'85 on a bike.

Pick up your bike at Psar Nat and join the guide on an interactive tour of Battambang's historical downtown. Take in the rich explanations of the area's history and dynamic contemporary arts' scene, Cambodian culture and urban planning. Admire the old Governor's Residence, a renovated 1960s movie theatre and new art galleries housed in historic buildings. For a special look at Battambang history immerse yourself in videos, maps, and photographs via an interactive storyboard.

As the journey unfolds, ride through the cultural village of Wat Kor, then stop at an ancient house built in the early 1900s before a final stop at the famous Ta Dombang statue. The city is named after the legend of the Doombang.
