Koh Kong is the most southwestern province of Cambodia. It is one of the biggest provinces in the whole country with a long undeveloped coastline and a mountainous, forested and largely inaccessible interior, which embraces part of the Cardamom Mountains, the biggest coherent rain forest of Southeast Asia.
With the Cardamom Mountains in the north, the Damrei Mountains in the south and remote beaches dotting a rugged coastline, Koh Kong is strikingly beautiful. Travelling through the province can be difficult as unsealed roads running through the forest are often washed away and rivers must be crossed on ramshckle ferries. The small town of Koh kong, close to the Hat Lek border crossing with Thailand, is the province’s urban center – many shops accept only Thai Baht.
