Where and What to Eat in Battambang
Battambang is regarded by many visitors as the best place in the country to see and enjoy the traditional rural Cambodian way of life.
People are friendly and the town seems less commercial than other Cambodian cities. As a result, the choice of restaurants is rather limited. But what there is, is interesting.
