In Cambodia, Battambang is known for its vibrant arts scene and is home to a thriving community of artists.
The city was once considered to be Cambodia’s artistic hub, but the arts scene was completely destroyed under the Khmer Rouge regime. It’s undergoing a renaissance now though, and new galleries and art spaces are springing up all over the city.
Begin the tour with a visit to a trendy café and exhibition space showcasing the work of the city’s talented artists. Continue to nearby art studios to meet and interact with local artists in their work environments. Following the studio visit, enjoy lunch at a contemporary, social enterprise restaurant.
After lunch, take a boat trip along the river and discover the daily life of locals. Visit a family fruit farm and listen to tales of local history and legend, or stop in a small isolated village before returning at sunset and enjoying scenic views of the countryside while cruising back to the town.
