Day 01: Phnom Penh to Battambang by public bus
We will bring you from your hotel to the public bus station of Phnom Penh. The bus to Battamang leaves at 7am and takes 4-5 hours to reach its final destination. At arrival in Battambang and after check in at the hotel, we will go for lunch at the White Rose. This local restaurant has a huge selection of delicious fruit-shakes. Battambang is the provincial capital of Battambang province and is the second biggest town of Cambodia. However it still has a very local, unnourished, provincial atmosphere. In the afternoon, we will stroll around the city to see the old colonial buildings, such as the Governor’s residence, the small museum which hosts some interesting pieces such as some carved lintels coming from the surrounding temples and some stone or wooden Buddha statues and Wat Kampheng, a colorful temple in a peaceful garden. Then, we will drive 11 km along the Sang Ker River to reach Wat Ek Phnom temple (built by Suryavarman I in the 11th century). On the way back we will stop at the NGO Phare Ponleu Selpak where many different activities are offered with children from poor and disabled families before having dinner at the local restaurant. Overnight in Battambang

Day 02:  Khmer food and Old temples
After breakfast, we will drive 18 km to Phnom Sampeu. This mountain is the site of two caves formerly used by the Khmer Rouge to torture and kill some of their victims. A memorial holding some of the victims' remnants has been created. At the top are two Wat, one which was used as a prison during the Khmer Rouge era, and a small, colorful modern one from where you can enjoy a spectacular view of the countryside. Afterwards, we will go to Phnom Banan hill and climb the 337 steps to reach the top (10 minutes’ walk up). There, we will visit the 12th century's Prasat Banan temple and enjoy another outstanding view over the surrounding plains. We will continue to the natural cave located down the hill. After a 15 minutes’ walk through banana plantations and forest, we will get the cave of the holy water. The "Kouhea Preah Toeuk" still hosts some Buddha statues brought by locals in this immense natural room, and this evening sunset and watching bads coming out from the caves. Overnight in Battambang

Day 03: Ox-cart Trip & Bamboo Train Ride
This morning, after breakfast, we will visit the cultural and agricultural villages of Wat Kor commune. These villages are known for their ancient wooden houses and you will have the chance to visit some of these houses, inside and around, guiding by their owners who will share with us their life stories. We will continue this insight into the Cambodian way of life by enjoying an ox-cart trip and travel the traditional way from village to village. For lunch, you will help our host-family to cook a traditional Khmer meal and for dessert, you will enjoy the variety of unusual fruits available, enjoy ox-cart half day tour.
After lunch, we will take another real life experience on the bamboo train which will bring us to village and countryside. The bamboo train is a unique and creative form of transportation in Cambodia. It’s a simple bamboo platform on wheels powered by a small motorcycle engine. The train follows the railway track through villages and when it meets on-coming train or bamboo train, it can be disassembled and taken off the rails in few minutes, allowing the most loaded to pass. The « normal » train, which takes about 14 hours to links the 274 km between Battambang and Phnom Penh passes only once a week in every direction. The very rustic bamboo train can miraculously carries up to three tones, and villagers of all ages share the limited space with cargo, animals or motorcycle. This is a really unique experience to enjoy the Cambodian way of life and the beautiful countryside. 
On arrival, you will have some time to relax and explore the city on your own before our farewell dinner at local Restaurant which offers an extensive menu of khmer, thai and western food. 
Overnight in Battambang. 

Day 04: Battambang to Siem Reap Car – Kampong Phluk Fishermen Village
Breakfast at your hotel, then we will transfer to Siem Reap by private car and after arrival we will visit to the fishermen’s village of Kompong Phluk on Tonle Sap Lake. During the dry season (February to August), the village can be reached by bus or motorbike but from Sep, we take a boat ride to Kompong Phluk where visit the village with its houses on stilts, the pagoda and see the activities of the  villagers before taking a traditional boat will take us on the big Tonle Sap Lake, then continue to Angkor Wildlife & Aquarium where you will learn more about what kinds of fishes that we have in Tonle Sap Lake,
