Welcome to Kompong Cham


Long considered Cambodia’s third city after Phnom Penh and Battambang, Kompong Cham has lately been somewhat left in the dust by the fast-growing tourist towns of Siem Reap and Sihanoukville. However, Kompong Cham remains a travel hub and acts as the stepping stone to eastern Cambodia.

Kompong Cham used to be the most heavily populated province in Cambodia, but was divided in two, giving birth to Tbong Khmum Province.
