Kampong Cham province is a gateway to eastern and north-eastern Cambodia, a land of picturesque lowland villages, pretty wats and fishing communities. The main river is the Mekong River which cuts roughly through the centre of the province. Kampong Cham means "Port of the Chams" in Khmer. Kampong means port; Cham refers to the ethnic Cham people living in the province.
Kampong Cham town is more a quiet town than a bustling city, a peaceful provincial capital spread along the banks of the Mekong River relatively close to Phnom Penh (123km) and Vietnam. Its architecture is a mix of the old and the new, French architecture from the colonial period and modern constructions.
Wonderful places to visit in Kampong Cham province are most of all the famous Nokor Bachey temple, a cultural and historical site built in the middle of the 11th century, located about 2 kilometres from Kampong Cham provincial town and about 122 kilometres northeast of Phnom Penh and Haon Waterfall, a mountain that features a steep cliff and breath-taking waterfall perfect for swimming. It is a popular tourist destination due to its unspoilt nature and jungle surrounding it. Buddhists often come there to pray to the Buddha statue and to seek blessings from the monk who lives there.
Come take a look! It's really amazing!
