Run by a NGO local school, Green Orange Kayaks offers kayaking trips down the river from villages 11km from a nearby village into the heart of town. It’s a lovely trip passing through villages and fields before you enter the city. The trip stops at several temples and along the way you’ll see daily life on the river – from fishing to washing to bathing to play. Even farm animals being housed on small cages floating on the water. The riverside is stunning and if you didn’t arrive in Battambang by the slow-boat from Siem Reap then you really should try make this top of your list!
