Islands, Jungle and Border
Kong City is the capital of Koh Kong province, a comparatively small
provincial town sitting on the east side of the Koh Pao River about
10km from the Cham Yeam international border crossing with Thailand.
Many travelers see Koh Kong only briefly as they pass through on the
way to/from Thailand, but that is changing and the province is
becoming something of an ‘eco-destination.’
To the north and east of the city, the jungled
cover much of the province, offering trekking, dirt-biking and river
excursion possibilities. Heading the other
beaches line the nearby coastline and tropical island
of Koh Kong.
Base your adventures out of Koh Kong City where you can arrange
tours, rent boats, motorcycles, etc. There are a number of mid-range
guesthouses and hotels in Koh Kong and though there is not much to
see in the city there is an international casino and one of the
better zoos in Cambodia located near the border crossing.
