Kampong Cham Province, Cambodia
Set on the banks of the Mekong River and within easy reach of Phnom Penh and Vietnam, Kompong Cham is an important trade and transportation hub. The town itself is quaint and charming with a bustling riverside promenade and peeling colonial buildings, though modern concrete and glass buildings are beginning to encroach. Over two million people live in Kompong Cham province, most working as rubber tappers or as farmers. Kompong Cham’s flat land and red soil is ideal for rubber plantations and fruit orchards.
