Getting Around

English- and French-speaking remork drivers are commonplace in Battambang, and all are eager to whisk you around on day trips. A half-day trip out of town to a single sight such as Phnom Sampeau might cost US$12, while a full-day trip taking in three sights costs US$16 to US$20, depending on your haggling skills. A moto costs about half that.

A moto ride in town costs around 2000r, while a remork ride starts from US$1.50.

Gecko Moto and the Royal Hotel rent out motorbikes for US$6 to US$8 per day. Bicycles can be rented at the Royal Hotel, Soksabike, Battambang Bike and several guesthouses for about US$2 per day.
