Hey everyone. We’re wrapping up a visit to Angkor Wat in another day and was thinking of going to Battambang . We want to visit the CBET program at Chi Phat but I am having trouble figuring out how to get there from Battambang. Do we have to go all the way back to Phnom Penh? What would a suggested route from Battambang to Chi Phat be? Thanks for your suggestions and advice.

I have this same question about getting to Chi Phat. What did you end up doing? I see Rome2Rio suggests a taxi option for $45-60 . It looks like by car there may be other routes that bypass PP and may get to see more of the rural countryside. Did you find any opportunities in Battambang to recruit other possible passengers? The price seems very reasonable but it would be nice to share it.

From Battambang you basically have two options via PP or
head by bus to Pursat and then depending on time of day to Pramaoy/Veal Veang or Ou Som and on to Koh Kong . You will need to overnight somewhere and share taxis are easy to find for these legs although best aim for earlyish morning starts
The road joins the main road about 15 klms from Koh Kong and whilst you could probably flag down a passing van/bus you might want to head to the bus station (or spend the night in Koh Kong) depending on time of day
Unlikely to find others in Battambang but share taxis are easy to use and find
