Prey Veng Travel Guide

Situated in southeastern Cambodia, Prey Veng has many interesting sights for the tourist and is well within reach of the capital, Phnom Penh, making it a good daytrip option. Its sleepy nature and archaeological remains are its main draws.

Prey Veng is very accessible due to it being on the main Phnom Penh-Ho Chi Minh City highway, yet despite its accessibility it is not too chaotic for the average international traveler. There are several good looking colonial buildings to check out in the city center, along with a number of cheap guesthouses and of course, a bustling fresh produce market.

If you tire of the city, head out of town and visit the nearby lake and Preah Theat Me Bon, or perhaps check out the many Ba Phnom temples in the area. In addition, the Vietnam border isn’t far away from Prey Veng, with Ho Chi Minh City well connected by bus and the infamous Cu Chi Tunnels within reach.

Getting There & Away

Prey Veng is just 55 miles from Phnom Penh and shared taxis or minibuses can get you here cheaply in 90 minutes or so. It lies on the Phnom Penh-Ho Chi Minh City highway, making it easy to get to. The nearest airport is in Phnom Penh, which is well connected with the capital city.
