Things to Do in Kratie

Discover the amazing things to do in Kratie province

Kratie province is located in north eastern Cambodia on the Mekong River.

Just like Siem Reap, the province of Kratie has one major draw card. Unlike Siem Reap it is living and breathing, but for how much longer. Kratie is home to the highly endangered Mekong Freshwater Dolphins, which you can most easily see at the Kampi Rapids, a few kilometres north of the town of Kratie itself.

  There is much to discover in Kratie and the surrounding countryside to justify more than an overnight dolphin-wathing stay. The town has the interesting Phnom Sambok Pagoda, while to the north lies the colourful 100 Column Pagoda.

Those looking to get off the beaten can hire a bicycle and explore the island of Koh Trong in the Mekong river, to discover a rural way of Cambodian life a far cry from the hustle of major cities.
