Prey Veng is quite a sleepy Cambodian province, that just happen to have one of the countries busiest highways running straight through it-National Highway No 1, which links Phnom Penh and Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam. It is a small but heavily populated agricultural region located on the east banks of the mighty Mekong. The name of the province means literally “tall forest”, but actually doesn’t refer in any case to lush forests as most of them were chopped down in the past 30-50 years.
Also rubber played once a big economical role in this province, but since the war took over the country the plantations are no longer commercially viable. Pancake-flat Prevy Veng Province borders Vietname to the south and is a predominanlty agricultural area. Increasing investment has led to a diverse set of crops including biodiesel.
