Koh Kong Map

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.
