Here Be Dragons

East Bank, Sangker River, Near Wat Sangker, Battambang, Cambodia


It is located on the east bank of Battambang's Sangker River, near Wat Sangker and overlooking the riverside park where, at dusk and dawn, locals gather to chat, snack and exercise. It takes around 10 minutes to walk from Here Be Dragons into the centre of town, and on a moto or tuk tuk it'll take about the same amount of time to get out into the countryside. Here, you can hang out in the evening after exploring Battambang's beautiful countryside, or kick back for a few days after Siem Reap's temples or the bright lights of Bangkok.The dorm room bunk beds were hand-crafted by a Khmer bed-maker to an ancient design we nicked from the internet. There are 6 beds in the room, and two shared bathrooms out the back.

If you are arriving by moto or tuk tuk, ask the driver to drop you at Here Be Dragons - if he says he doesn't know where we are, tell him we're near Wat Sangker, next to You Can School.If you're walking from the bus or boat station, head for the river then turn right and walk along it until you get to a bridge opposite a stationery shop. Cross the bridge and turn right again, and you'll see our sign - if you reach another bridge you've gone too far!
