Cambodia - Northwestern Cambodia (Chapter)
This is the Northwestern Cambodia chapter from Lonely Planet’s Cambodia guidebook.
Northwestern Cambodia is first and foremost about remote temples, many of them pillars of the Angkorian empire. The other big draw in the region is Battambang, with its classic colonial architecture, burgeoning arts scene and a host of day trips.
