Battambang Cambodia Essentials

Public and tourist services are much more limited than Phnom Penh, but for a provincial city, you can usually get most of what you need. There are a couple of well-stocked convenience stores in town, several banks and ATMs (especially clustered at the river end of the main market in the center of town), a provincial hospital, a couple of clinics and dentists, internet shops and widely available wifi. 

Shopping: Markets & Convenience Stores
Of the city’s three traditional markets, Phsar Nath is the primary market. Its distinctive clock tower on the river side is a local landmark. The market is geared to the locals, vending fruits, vegetables, meat, clothes, sundries, etc. Phsar Leu, just south of town, is the place to buy local fruits, including oranges and pomelos from Pursat, said to be the best in the country.

The most popular international mini-market in town is the Chea Neang Drink Shop, on the west side of Phsar Nath, offering a pretty good selection (for a provincial town) of imported foods, meats, cheeses, snacks and liquors and spirits.


Money and Banking
All banks encash travelers checks and change money and most have ATMs. There are several ATMs at the riverfront street corner in front of Phsar Nath. Moneychangers are concentrated around the market with a few along Road #1.
