Here Be Dragons

#315, Road 159D, Group 4, Rattanak Village, Romchek 4 Commune


Here Be Dragons is 5 minutes walk from the centre of town, on the banks of the Sangker River. It's relaxed and laid-back, a world for eating, drinking, lazing about, listening to music, swapping stories, playing games and planning adventures.

The Dragons are friendly and welcoming, and can help you organise tours or trips or arcane missions. We have regular events, a roof for yoga and movies, a ping pong table, good music, great atmosphere, and the best cocktails in town.

Whether you’re excited about exploring Battambang's art scene and countryside, or you just need to relax after the bright lights of Siem Reap or Bangkok, step off the map and lose yourself in the world of the Dragons.

Different bus companies stop at different locations around Battambang. None should be more than a few dollars in a tuk tuk to Here Be Dragons. Alternatively, if you'd like to walk from the centre of town, walk south along the west bank of the river, and cross at the bridge opposite Classy Hotel. Turn right and walk south along the east bank of the river. Here Be Dragons is opposite the park just before you get to Wat Sangker.

If you are arriving by boat from Siem Reap you will disembark at the boat port (as long as there's enough water in the river) which is on the west bank of the river to the north of town, so you can follow the directions above if you'd like to walk. It should take about 20 minutes. Alternatively you can take a tuk tuk or motodop.
