Kampong Cham province lies northeast of Phnom Penh on the Mekong River.
Kampong Cham is oftern a province that people travel through without pause, in order to reach other parts of Cambodia, but this is a mistake.
The province is one of the most agricultural in Cambodia, which means that you have far more to see than endless fields of paddy.
Kampong Cham is one of the more interesting cities in provincial Cambodia. It certainly justifies an overnight stay or more. Sitting beside the river watching the world slowly drift past is a wonderful way to spend your evening.
The province is also home to the country’s Muslim Cham population. Take a bike and explore the countryside and discover rural villages with mosques, or stay in the city itself, and head for the wonderful Buddhist centre. Whatever you do, make sure you stay in charming Kampong Cham.

Where to Go after Enjoying Kampong Cham Province?
Visiting Kratie and the northeast region of Mondulkiri, Ratanakiri and Stung Treng is a great way to see the more unexplored and natural parts of Cambodia.
If you head east you will reach Prey Veng province and continue onwards to Vietnam.
Head north west from Kampong Cham and you will discover Kampong Thom, often just a stopping point on the way to Siem Reap, but a worthy destination in itself, especially with its pre-Angkorean temple of Sambor Prei Kuk.
