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 😀 Hope you enjoy! Thailand is next….stay tuned 😉

The endless stairs up to Wat Banan
We were halfway there and dying because of how steep these stairs were!
Finally made it!! This is a rear view of the ruins
We followed these three kids as our tour guides and trekked down a steep mountain to enter this cave with really cool calcium formations
This is in inside one of the killing caves in Cambodia
We caught the bats leaving their cave in the evening–I wish I could share a video!
