Kbal Chhay Prek Koh Waterfall
Kbal Chhay Prek Koh Waterfall is probably the most visited in the area. The breathtaking views of the waterfall and the surrounding forests offer a memorable experience. Because of its strategic location away from the hustle and bustle of the city, Koh Kong is a popular destination for most tourists in Cambodia. Many travellers use the waterfall as a picnic spot as well.
Lam Da Beach
Lam Da is one of the most popular beaches in Koh Kong. Most travellers hire a car to come here and spend the day, lazing in the sun or taking a swim. The beach has almost all the natural elements that one can think of, and it's one of the most important landmarks of Koh Kong.
Waterfalls in Koh Kong
The monsoon season sees rivers filling up and creating magnificent sights at waterfalls in the Cardamom Mountains. If you want to explore one of them, the Tatai Waterfalls are the easiest to do so.
They have 2 tiers and drop about 20 ft. Other impressive waterfalls include Koh Por which is studded with massive boulders and rocks with giant gorges surrounded by jungle and the Kbal Chhay Falls which also provides a remarkable sight for visitors.
The truth is that most of the products in Koh Kong, whether necessities or luxuries are brought in from Thailand. However, there are a number of shops that sell street clothing and stay open until as late as 10pm.
Although there is an airport in Koh Kong, it wasn't used for commercial flights. The runway for Koh Kong Airport wasn't appropriate for such flights and required some renovation to bring it up to a desirable standard. The airport underwent development with partial operations targeted by late 2020, readying it for handling long-haul aircraft.
Sre Ambel is the connecting point of Koh Kong to Sihanoukville and Phnom Penh via National Route 4. The drive is a pleasing one with beautiful scenic features.
You can take in the developing countryside of Cambodia and admire the Cardamom Mountains along the way. There are bus rides available from Koh Kong in the morning and afternoon.
The Cham Yeam border of Thailand is located at a distance of 10 km and can be crossed with the help of motos and taxis (shared or single). You may have to bargain with the drivers waiting to charge too much at the border area to come down to a fair price for both parties.
