The first vineyard of Cambodian - Prasat Phnom Banan Vineyard
Pick up from your hotel at 08.00 a.m. We continue to visit Ek Phnom Temple which is an 11th century Angkorian-era ruin built as a Hindu temple under Suryavarman I. The temple consists of prasats on a platform with some carvings in pretty good condition. Wat Ek Phnom, a modern pagoda, sits next to the ruin. The river road drive to Ek Phnom from Battambang passes through small villages and rice paddies and is an absolutely beautiful countryside drive. Visit a market where Prahoc, the Cambodian fish paste, is made. We continue to visit the place where local people take steam-sticky rice cooked in bamboo.
Afternoon, visit Phnom Banan, Battambang also a great opportunity to taste juicy oranges, sweet pineapples, and much other fruits, etc. Not far from Ksach Puoy is Cambodia’s first vineyard – Prasat Phnom Banan Vineyard – you can pop in if you like, learn about producing wine in the tropics and of course enjoy a spot of wine tasting! A few kilometers further south you arrive at the well preserved 11th century mountaintop Angkorian temple of Phnom Banan. After climbing the 350+ steps you are treated to a wonderfully peaceful setting with superb views across the surrounding countryside. We end our day tour by visiting bamboo train village with a great experience of sliding on this funny train. End of 1 day trip to Battambang.
