No after my last post I didn’t take up the if you can’t beat them with a large stick join them approach and get my self a man shaped piece of arm meat or the backpack carrying multi use travel pillow as they seem to be known. I met Nicky, my new favourite tuk tuk driver ever in the world.
Nicky is brilliant, he speaks amazing English and is so knowledgable about all things Cambodia.
I visited the killing caves of Battambang, craft villages, a horrible crocodile farm and some of Battambangs temples. Wonderful stop for my last couple of days in Cambodia before I boarded a very boring and lengthy minibus ride back to Bangkok to fly home in time for Christmas with the family.
I did enjoy Battambang but apart from Nicky, there wasn’t much to reccomend it in particular. It was a bit soulless and lacked the brilliant atmosphere I found in most other cities in Cambodia.
if you go to Battambang, find Nicky Tuk Tuk Battambang on Facebook and make sure you meet him. I really couldn’t reccomend him enough.
