Kampong Cham is the third largest city situated in southeastern Cambodia on banks of Mekong River. Important trade and transportation center because of its favorable position on the river, relatively close to Phnom Penh and Vietnam. From first sight rural countryside village, with unexpectedly developed city center full of French colonial buildings, large boulevard streets beside the river. Making this city a great mix of both old and new.
There is not much to explore here besides the rural countryside which has its own charm to it. There are couple amazing temples situated near or on top of hills surrounded by monkey filled forests quite near the city. Not mentioning the colonial architecture which is a worth wile sight and finally toping everything with Khmer cuisine. It is not very different from any other regular Cambodian city and most visitors who comes here are regular backpackers on their way around the country. This place could be great getaway for couple days getaway from busy Phnom Penh or a base for couple days enjoying the rural countryside life of Cambodia.
Best of luck planning your holidays in Cambodia!
