Adventures in Asia: Battambang

This past weekend, we ventured out of Siem Reap for the first time to visit Battambang! It wasn’t what I expected at all, although I think my expectations were a bit high… I was expecting this super large city with tons of people, but it was wayyyy less busy than Siem Reap, and a lot quieter as well! Unlike SR, where we stayed was barren with the exception of a few hotels and some bar restaurants that only opened in the evening (that made looking for food so difficult without transportation!)

Here are some photos to highlight the weekend ๐Ÿ˜€ Hope you enjoy! Thailand is next….stay tuned ๐Ÿ˜‰

We were halfway there and dying because of how steep these stairs were!

We followed these three kids as our tour guides and trekked down a steep mountain to enter this cave with really cool calcium formations

We caught the bats leaving their cave in the evening–I wish I could share a video!
