Battenbang

Location: Battenbang, Vietnam

IN Battenbang we sorted out a great trip on 3 motorbikes around the city and it turned out to be one of the best little trips we have done. We saw the countryside, how locals live & had some great fun too. battenbang is Cambodias 2nd biggest city..like our Birmingham?

The killing caves with one of our moto drivers. The Khmer Rouge either killed people with clubs & other weapons before they dropped them in here thru the a whole in the top of teh cave or chucked them & left them to starve to death. There was only one entrance/exit...through the roof 100ft up with no way of climbing out.

This was my driver & guide for the day. He was 38 yrs old & had 4 kids....the oldest was 24??? Now do the maths & see what a busy man he has been.

All aboard the 'bambo train' ...literally all aboard. The bikes, us, the guides, locals & local produce were packed on. At this 'station' it was turned around for us & we enjoyed a rickety 30 minute ride back towards the city centre.
