Banteay Chhmar – Sisophon – Battambang 4 days 3 nights

We will explore Banteay Chhmar temple,  a 12th century enigmatic large monastic temple complex with several Bayon like towers and beautiful bas-relief. Away from the crowd of Angkor Wat, this massive temple received only 2,200 visitors in 2017.We will visit also some less known temples near the city of Battambang like Banan temple,  a temple mountain dated back from the 10th century. Beside temples, we will stop in few colorful monasteries were you will have the chance to  meet document the daily life of monks.

Battambang and Sisophon with their  fading colonial architecture and infrastructures from the French Indochina worth exploring even if things are changing fast and  might not be around much longer…
