In the early morning, you will be awakened by the tinkling of the carriages which carry goods, mainly vegetables into the city. Battambang is so serene at that time with the miraculous sunrise over the river in the light fog. You can explore the city by tuk-tuk, bicycle or on foot to watch some of Indochina’s best preserved colonial era architecture and many stone statues of Kings, General, famous characters in history and the Gods of legend along the streets. The yellow golden shower trees that you can see everywhere in Battambang make the city become more bright and vibrant under the radiant sun.
