Koh Kong

What you need to know before you go

Koh Kong lets you escape to a lesser-explored region on Cambodia’s west coast. It’s considered one of the country’s greenest provinces, with the lush and hilly slopes of the Cardamom Mountains meeting swathes of mangrove forests. You can boat out to the namesake Koh Kong island for an even more remote getaway.

Take in soothing nature on tours through wildlife sanctuaries, with sightings that include rare species such as gibbons, the Asian golden cat, and the Irrawaddy dolphin. This mostly untouched coast is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in Cambodia. You can reach Koh Kong by bus from Phnom Penh or go via National Route 4 from Sihanoukville by car or moto-taxi.
