|Green Orange Kayaks, Sangke River Battambang|
The kayak trip is eleven kilometres back to the city, as it meanders its way through the Cambodian countryside. The faint tinkle of instruments could be heard from the five Wats that are nearby on route, and shrieking screams of hello-bye-bye-hello from kids on the banks and swimming in the water. Stopping off at some of the interesting Wats is a nice way to rest your shoulders, and should you be staying a few days then Around Battambang by Ray Zepp is a must guide book. It contains detailed information about the history of the Wats and other sites to visit, full edition on this site in archives. The leisurely down river voyage took us two hours, passing riverside vegetable terraces, traditional bamboo houses and fishermen. The clouds followed us all the way that afternoon, and opened up just as we arrived at a Battambang and headed to a watering hole for a few well deserved cold ones. At present they have two double kayaks and one single. The price is $12 per person, which goes towards the running of the school.
