Introducing Kratie

A supremely mellow riverside town, Kratie (pronounced kra-cheh) has an expansive riverfront and some of the best Mekong sunsets in Cambodia. It is the most popular place in the country to see Irrawaddy dolphins, which live in the Mekong River in ever-diminishing numbers. There is a rich legacy of French-era architecture, as it was spared the wartime bombing that destroyed so many other provincial centres.

A travel hub, Kratie is the natural place to break the journey when travelling overland between Phnom Penh and Champasak in southern Laos.
