Welcome to Anlong Veng


Today Anlong Veng is a poor, dusty town with little going for it, and unprecedented flooding in 2017 didn't help. However, the nearby Choam–Chong Sa-Ngam border crossing connects Cambodia with an isolated part of Thailand, and for those with an interest in contemporary Cambodian history, the area’s Khmer Rouge sites will have appeal. Most of the local residents, and virtually the entire political leadership and upper class, are ex–Khmer Rouge or descendants.
