‘Contemporary Battambang and French Colonial Buildings’

Battambang, the third largest city in Cambodia by population, is described in travel guides as a place with French colonial architecture.
Not that the city is overflowing with colonial buildings, but in the street along the Sangker River I was able to take these pictures.

Now that I see these photos after more than a year after my return and after so many memories, Battambang looks very modern here.
In reality I didn't think it was a very modern town.
But it was a pleasant place and there were not nearly as many foreign visitors as in Siem Reap, Phnom Penh or Kampot.

Motorcycles and tuk tuks dominated the streets.
