Nothing fancy in any sense of the word, but a place to stay within easy walking distance of what you want in town. Super cheap rooms so you can spend your money on sightseeing. The restaurant downstairs is buzzing with locals, so it's a great cultural experience if you want to join in with a pitcher of Angkor and ice and a plate of chicken's feet!!!

... the victims, but merely seeing their shrine is sad enough. As we had walked down the children had chattered away to us in English, asking where we were from and did we want to see the cave. As we ascended the steps, the children crowded around begging for money so that they could learn English. Having already been pressured by adorable children once that day, and now being chased by even younger kids, it was hard for me not to feel emotional. I held back my tears and kept walking.

He also pointed out the artillery sitting in front of the French colonial office which was brought over in 1978 from Thailand, but was made in England. It was interesting to see such international influence here after visiting the killing cave that was part of Cambodia's secret horror during the 1970s.
Our day was full of fun, history, culture, and nature and we ended it with traditional Cambodian ...
... half way down the track to make way for the railway trolleys coming in the other direction. "Whoops mum, the wheel's have really come off!" see the Pix. The girls as well as the guys take the trolleys apart. We stopped at a local village, then caught the train back. We then visited the Killing Caves. On the way up to the killing caves we passed a Budhha, half carved into the mountain, only the head. They ran out of money, so all there is, is a head. The Killing ...
... t give you a chance, right in your face asking 'taxi, taxi, where you go?' And the only English word they don't seem to understand is 'no'. Once we'd final got off the bus and to our bags we negotiated a price with one of the Tuk Tuk drivers to take us to the town centre to find a hotel. The hotel we settled upon was very nice, called the Royal Hotel. There wasn't much that was regal about it but it did the job nicely and for the best price so far - £8 per night. ...
... we ended staying for 2 nights at $3 per night. It was decent compared to the other one but the staff weren't great. They wouldn't even let us put bottled water on a tab. After chilling for a bit and wandering through an average market, we realised Battambang wasn't really for us. It was a bit too small, a bit too quiet and not many westerners at all. Probably a very objective view and I may end ...
