The tuk-tuk ride to the pier

One is writing this from one's river facing terrace at Royal Hotel in Battambang in interior Cambodia. One has returned after a once in a lifetime experience. An unforgettable journey of a different kind. The adventure of cruising through acres of lush greenery for several hours in an open air train! A close encounter with the sights, sounds and smells of nature. Battambang is a small town nestled between Cambodia and Thailand on the banks of the Sangker River. There is an interesting legend from the 10th century about how Battambang got its name.
