This is a great gallery on the east side of the river. It is professionally run and much more extensive than we realised it would be (about 5 rooms). We enjoyed our chat with the gallery owner, who gave us more insight regarding the artists,...More

As a layman in this abstruse art and painting world, I was happily impressed by the revival of painting in Battambang, birthplace of most of Khmer culture.
