Koh Kong province

 

Just got back from Koh Kong province for a few days.  It was nice to be near the coast and saw some beautiful mangrove areas.  The smell of the ocean air was a refreshing change.

 

It made me think about how mangroves are supposedly endangered in many places. This is an issue I need to learn more about as I could not keep track of that one.  What ecological function do mangroves serve?

 

If you’re thinking about going to Koh Kong, its a good place to cross the border to Thailand, and its now really quite fast to get there.   I’d say it should take about 6 hours from Phnom Penh, with reasonable traffic. It’s a route that can be used to get to Phnom Penh or Sihanoukville from Thailand.

 

Otherwise, it’s really quiet.  I personally would feel not so interested to stay a long time, but an interesting stopover for one or two days.   The whole place is really quiet after 10 pm.
