Battambang Bat Caves, Battambang
(4.5/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
Watch as a steady stream of Asian wrinkle-lipped bats fly out of a hillside hole at Battambang Bat Caves, some 20 minutes from the city at Phnom Sampeau. As dusk falls every day at around 5 or 6 pm, thousands upon thousands of these nocturnal creatures leave their nests and pour out of the cave, reminiscent of a smoke column billowing up to the sky. It takes up to 40 minutes for all of the bats to exit, so you'll have plenty of time to take a good photo.

  • The bat caves are worth the trip. Most tuk tuk drivers will take you on the day long circuit of the bamboo train, Banan Hill Temple and bat caves to end the day. Buy a beer ($1.50) or other cold drink...  more »

  • 1200 markets. Tourism. While we can climb these steps proposed to go up by car and between the lower the top, there is nobody. The place is not maintained, garbage everywhere. Distressing.
