On the eastern bank of the Mekong river, Kratie province is bordered by Vietnam. Its capital city, Kratie, is a very quiet place with some colonial architecture and a lively market, but most notable are the Irrawaddy dolphins that can be seen in the waters around the town. Other attractions in the province include Phom Sambox temples, Wat Preah Vihear Kratie temple (not to be confused with the famous temple of the same name at the Thai border) and Sambor town.

The province is accessed by bus and collective taxis, and boats ply the Mekong river.
