ART Experience

As an artist and city guide in Battambang, I am always fascinated by the art and street art that can be found in our city.  I appreciate the importance of art and history in our city and enjoy sharing my knowledge about it with our tourists.

Battambang's history is rich with cultural influences and art forms that are still present in our city today. From the temples and pagodas to the old French colonial buildings, there is much to discover and learn.

Street art is also an important part of our city and shows the creativity and passion of our residents. I like to take our tourists around the streets of Battambang to admire the different street art works and learn the stories behind them.

Lost Places 

The Lost Places Tour in Battambang is an unforgettable experience for anyone interested in history and culture. This tour takes you to the abandoned places in the city that were once an important part of the cultural heritage but are now forgotten and abandoned.

One of the stops on the tour is the old Battambang cinema. Here you can step back in time and imagine what it must have been like when the cinema was still in operation. Visiting the cinema is a unique opportunity to learn and understand the history of Battambang.

Another stop on the tour are the backyards of old residential houses. Here you can experience the architecture and lifestyle of people in the past. These lost places are an important part of Battambang's history and should definitely be visited.
