Photographer's Note

The is the main street of Battambang, one of the largest cities of Cambodia. I think Battambang used to be the second largest city but now it has been surpassed by Siem Reap and maybe also Sihanoukville, both benefitting from a rush of tourists.

Very few tourists seem to stay in Battambang, most just passing by on their way from Thailand to Phnom Penh. I didn't mind the relative emptiness. I enjoyed the quiet streets and a prize level almost half of that of the other major cities. It is a nice and pleasant city with a handful of restaurants and a few decent hotels. I was surprised to find a very nice modern café. Battambang is also a good starting point for excursions to interesting temples and villages in the near surroundings.

You can see two more pictures from Battambang as workshops.
