We waited about an hour but at 5:45 PM bats began flying out of the cave in a stream. Thousands and thousands of bats poured out for at least 15 minutes and flew off into the sunset. It was an amazing sight.

We were pushed for time so didn’t manage to do anything other than watching the bats but that was amazing. 4$ Tuk Tuk from the centre (using passapp). The bats came out at around 5.50pm, but I guess it depends on the time of year....More

Fantastic experience to see millions of bats fly out of the bat cave, but they come out when they are ready, so you might wait awhile. Locals can give you a good idea of when to start watching. We sweated buckets waiting, but it was...More

Seeing the millions of bats leave their cave was a fund end to a long day out in the countryside around Battambang. The locals are obviously well set up for tourists with chairs set out, cold drinks etc. so it was pleasant to sit and...More

The chance to watch millions of bats exiting the cave at dusk, swarming and flying in fascinating formations as "one", was magical for my son and I. But then again, we love wildlife and nature (there were some very bored tourists there who muttered, "what's...More

A really unexpected spectacle. I have not seen anything like this outside a BBC documentary. Literally millions of bats leaving the cave at dusk. Phenomenum lasts almost a hour

I don't know the specific address. But what I can recommend is to just book a tricycle, and ask for the more quiet area to watch the bats. Our driver dropped us off near a hill, and this place was less crowded that the bar... More
