Having largely escaped modern development, Oddar Meancheay in northern Cambodia is a little visited and impoverished part of the country. The provincial capital, Samraong, is the province’s most urbanized town and a base for reaching other parts of Oddar Meancheay.

The province is best known internationally as having been where Khmer Rouge leader Pol Pot was captured. Few places in the province have electricity and tourist accommodation is not available, with the exception of home stays.
