Located on Cambodia’s western shore and just a stone’s throw from Thailand, Koh Kong City is a sleepy town on the cusp of becoming Cambodia’s next hip destination. It captures the essence of Cambodia, the very reasons the country’s popularity is growing. Natural beauty, delicious food, and the welcoming atmosphere will make you want to stay a little longer, and explore a little further.
Koh Kong’s placement on the Gulf of Thailand, lush forested surroundings, and proximity to the Cardamom Mountains attracts travelers in search of relaxation and adventure. The culture here is diverse, with a good mix of European expatriates and Cambodian nationals, all as warm and welcoming as the pristine sand beaches. Koh Kong Island is a short boat ride from the city and is consistently ranked among the most beautiful beaches in southeast Asia.
Further inland, the Cardamom Mountains are alive with hidden waterfalls and dense tropical rainforests. Due to its challenging accessibility, the region is still relatively unexplored and undeveloped, and the forest is among the largest truly wild locales left in Indochina. The Tatai River carves through the mountains and forests, cascading over the shifting elevations and creating a series of beautiful waterfalls and tranquil pools as it flows.
