Rattanakiri is located in Cambodia’s far northeast bordered by Laos to the north, Vietnam to the east, Mondulkiri to the south, and Stung Treng to the west. This rural rugged province is a 70% ethnic minority, which are known as “Chunchiet”. Rattanakiri was as recently as 2002 seriously off the beaten track but has since been “discovered” step by step. Still, while you won’t get any bragging rights for coming here, it’s well worth the effort to do so, and once you get away from it’s capital Banlung you won’t run into too many other tourists. So Rattanakiri is still a remote province in Northeastern Cambodia worth to visit.
A mountainous region bordering Vietnam to the east adn Laos to the north. Beautiful waterfalls, crystal rivres, virgin forests, and rolling hills make Rattanakiri a popular tourist destination. Untouched self-sufficient hill bribe communities are common – Rattanakiri is home to msot of Cambodia’s ethnic minorities. Ban Lung, the provincial capital, is quickly expanding with the influx of tourist and NGO dollars.
