The somewhat sleepy town of Krong Koh Kongis a good place to visit on the way to or from Cambodia’s Sihanoukville as well as a nice spot to spend the night before hopping across the border into neighbouring Thailand.

Located near the mouth of the Kah Bpow River, Krong Koh Kong is an area of intense natural beauty. The province is famous for Koh Kong Island, which has a number of beautiful sandy beaches and is a good place for swimming and sunbathing.

This is a good place for a trek through the jungle and to soak up the stunning scenery, with the Cardamom mountain range making an impressive backdrop. Many visitors stop here on their way to or from Sihanoukville, with Krong Koh Kong being a good overnight stop for those on their way to neighbouring Thailand.

Many Thai people cross into Cambodia to try their luck at the casino and gambling is big business here. If that’s not your scene, nearby Bak Khlong Beach is a great place to relax in the sunshine and dine on fresh seafood.

Getting There & Away

Most people cross intoKrong Koh Kong via the Koh Kong Bridge, which links the town with the border crossing between Thailand and Cambodia. The capital city of Phnom Penh is about 140kms away.
