Koh Kong Province

Koh Kong is a quaint border province that has long had a reputation as a 'Wild West' frontier location. Situated at the southwestern tip of the country near the mouth of the Kah Bpow River, the city is only 10 kilometers from the Thai border. Koh Kong has a long coastline and a large forested interior that embraces part of the Cardamom Mountains and a section of Kirirom National Park. Its tourist attractions include a theme park, beaches, waterfalls and a rich mangrove rain forests by the sea".

There are many offshore islands nearby Koh Kong, the most interesting of which is Koh Kong Khoa, a practically uninhabited jungle paradise with seven magnificent white sandy beaches. This island is only a forty-five minute water taxi ride from shore.

Koh Kong has enjoyed quite a few tourism development projects that have turned the province into a great tourist destination. The province is linked to Phnom Penh and Preah Sihanouk Province via the town of Sre Ambel using National Route 4. This newly built road provides visitors with yet another option to access the province by road. A drive on this road is highly recommend to those who love nature; the road winds through some of Cambodia's least developed and unspoiled regions - the Cardamom Mountains. Amidst thick forest, streams and charming waterfalls, the adventure is rewarded with scenic sites for stopovers and great photography

Mangroves stretch all along the coast from Kep to Koh Kong, and they cover an area of over 50,000 hectares in Koh Kong. Mangroves are specialized tropical trees that live on the edge where rainforests meet oceans. These ‘rainforests by the sea’ are rich breeding grounds for shrimp, crabs, shellfish, snails and fish, especially the beautiful Mud skippers that seem to enjoy the surface more than being in water. They are also nesting sites for many shorebirds, lizards, sea turtles, and many other exotic animal species.
