Kampong Chhnang, Cambodia

Kampong Chhnang, situated in central Cambodia, serves as the capital city of Kampong Chhnang Province and is a crucial port city located just west of the Tonlé Sap River.

The city is connected to the national highway route and railway that links it to Phnom Penh. North of the city, across the Tonle Sap River, stands Phnom Kong Rei, a significant landmark.

The local economy in Kampong Chhnang is predominantly driven by rice production, and during the high-water monsoon season, many residents live on floating fishing villages.

The country has experienced widespread deforestation, with the exception of the Cardamom Mountains, located in the southwest region of the country. This area boasts the largest contiguous forest area in Southeast Asia, which remains largely unexplored. The provincial borderline in the southwest is situated on the slopes of Phnom Aoral, Cambodia's highest mountain, with an altitude of 1813m.
