Located close to the Thai border in western Cambodia, Koh Kong is the gateway to the beautiful natural region of the Cardamom and Elephant Mountains.
Thanks to its proximity to the Thai border crossing, Koh Kong is the arrival point for many visitors to Cambodia. This remote settlement has often been called a "frontier" or "Wild West" town in various travel publications, but don't let that put you off. These days, aided by the building of a Thai-Cambodian bridge and an all-round improvement in transport links, Koh Kong has shaken off its seedy reputation to become a hub for ecotourism.
There are few tourist attractions to speak of in Koh Kong itself, but the surrounding region offers some excellent opportunities for trekking and jungle exploration - home to great mangrove forests, waterfalls, untouched rainforest and a wide variety of wildlife.
