Battambang Resort is truly an oasis in the Battambang countryside. Pretty garden landscaping, nice bungalow-style rooms, fantastic pool, sumptuous breakfasts and best of all: a friendly welcome. Thank you Jan and Phary for helping us quickly forget the horrors of the Siem Reap - Battambang boat trip! Highly recommend doing Jan's cycle tour via the Bamboo Train.
