Discover the amazing things to do in Kampong Chhnang province

Kampong Chhnang province lies on the west bank of the Tonle Sap River next to Pursat and Kampong Speu provinces.

Situated on the road from Phnom Penh to Battambang, Kampong Chhnang is close enough to the Cambodian capital to be handled in a day trip.

Kampong Cham has an interesting and photogenic market as well as a really interesting floating village where the people live, shop and even go to school. It is well worth a visit for a glimpse into another side of Cambodia life.

Outside of the city there is the village of Andong Russey, which is famed for its pottery, and the Khmer Rouge Prison Caves.
