Kampong Thom

Kampong Thom is an idyllic land along Stung Saen River where sitting the renown temples The Sambor and Prei Kuk. Situated at the central point of the Kingdom of Cambodia, it is divided into two parts, East of Forest and plateau supplying great natural resources and the plain in the West for plantation and fishery. The name literally means 'Great Harbor'. It was initially called Kampong Pos Thom, due to a pair of big snakes that inhabited a cave at the dock of the Sen River, who would make an appearance every Buddhist holiday. Ultimately, the snakes disappeared resulting in the province’s today name. Except 2 months with heavy rain in Sep and Oct, the rest months are fine for traveling by land via Kampong Thom.
