Day 3: Battambang – Banteay Chhmar Temple – Siem Reap

Breakfast at the hotel.
Pay a visit to the Battambang Museum, which houses some interesting lintels and artifacts from the region. Bid farewell to Battambang and drive 2.5 hours further northwest to the seldom-visited northwestern province of Banteay Meanchey. This province is home to the ancient temple of Banteay Chhmar, which is also referred to as the “Fortress of the Cat”. This large temple is rarely visited by tourists due to its remoteness, thus it makes a refreshing change from the crowds at Angkor Wat. Severe looting has prevented archaeologists from understanding the temple and its function in detail, leaving its use to speculation. A low-key community tourism project has recently been established in the village to help the poor people taking care of the temple to supplement their incomes. Upon arrival, the local community will welcome you and members will join you to visit the temple explaining its history. Continue your transfer to Siem Reap arriving mid-afternoon (lunch en route).
Dinner and accommodation are not included

Included for the day:
Transport: Private vehicle and driving guide
