Hired a tuk tuk to take us to the caves for the evening. Sat by the side of the road with a beer with loads of other people waiting for the bats. It was like nothing I’d ever seen before! Probably millions come out for around 90 minutes in one long stream. Really cool and worth a visit!

Our tuktuk driver took us there. Alas it rained very hard so we could not really well see the flight of the millions of bats. Still it was very impressive to see the seemingly endless trail of bats.

Our driver advised to go get ourselves a drink and a seat. We had front row view of this phenomenon. All of a sudden it started and we watched for 20 mins and it kept going. Unbelievable. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

It was amazing to see millions of bats leave the cave. There were a lot of other spectators. The spectacle takes about half an hour every evening just before the sunset. There are so many bats flying away that it looks like smoke lingering in the sky. It’s interesting to see how they fly alongside the cliff before reaching the open air.

I really like bats and find them to be so helpful at getting rid of disease carrying mosquitoes. I have visited many locations to observe this ritual but have never seen anything like this parade of bats!! We visited at the end of a day trip to see sites surrounding Battambang and it was a great finale. They just kept coming and coming and making spirals and twists. It was quite a thing to view. There are many nice places in which to view this. We had great seats at an outdoor cafe so got to enjoy drinks and a show.
