    Hi All,
    Does anyone have any suggestions on which bus company and how much for an A/C Bus and is this suitable for a 54y/o travelling alone?
    Any GOOD standard a/c hotel/accom in Battambang?
    How about a good tuk-tuk driver to take me around for 2 days?

    Not sure on cost of bus off the top of my head, but for accommodation, see the accom section on our Battambang section. The Banan is good, Teo is aged, but going steady. If you want a splurge, La Villa is where it's at.

    Cheers

    Phnom Penh Soriya Bus Company is decent enough I think.. Should be about $5, and takes 3 hours or so out of your day. From 6.30 in the morn until 13.00 or 14.00 (?) At least 6 or 7 departures.

    Hi I don't recall the name of the bus company but a good air-conditioned mini bus is not hard to find, about 2.5 hours.

    For the best tuk tuk driver in Battambang try Sun Saveth . Saveth is a full time tuk tuk driver with very good English and a passion for his country as well as a great knowledge of the local area.

    We met Saveth when we volunteered to teach at his school over Christmas. The School is located in a small village just outside Battambang. Saveth and some volunteer Cambodian teachers open an afternoon school (3 to 6pm) to teach kids English. They are assisted by volunteers who can choose to stay for as little or as long a time as they choose. We had a fantastic time (we are both 50 and were with our 21 year old son), it gave us the opportunity to connect with locals, do some good, and learn about the Khmere culture.

    If you want to check it out, the school's web-site is http://www.kngo-home.org/. If you have a bit of time it is well worth while doing.

    Cheers

    Hello Everyone --

    Any suggestions: We're about to head into the area (early December) and are trying to navigate bus transport. Specifically, to determine whether it makes any difference on whether to travel from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap and then Battambang or Phnom Penh to Battambang to Siem Reap?


    Previous posts are very thorough, so no need to repeat what you've said. Just checking because it seems things can change in unexpected ways. Thanks!
