Kampong Cham is the third largest city in Cambodia and the capital of the province with the same name. This relatively small city has yet to be heavily touristed like Phnom Penh or Siem Reap. Most travellers who do find themselves in Kampong Cham are in transit to elsewhere in the country, but those that choose to spend at least a couple of days in the provincial capital will enjoy the laid back atmosphere and quaint charm. Most people in Kampong Cham are of course ethnic Khmer, but there is a sizeable Cham minority in the province's towns, including a disproportionately high number of Muslims and Christians and those of Chinese origin.
If recent projects seem to be improving the state of things here relative to other Cambodian cities , realize that both PM Hun Sen and former Phnom Penh Governor Chea Sophara are originally from this province and the current Governor is actually the PM's brother. Kampong Cham features road links with most major Cambodian cities, including Phnom Penh. The highway between Kampong Cham city and the capital Phnom Penh runs along the Mekong, and buses frequent this route daily, so you should have no trouble getting between the two cities.
Shortly after Skun however, the quality changes: There is also a new alternative route to Phnom Penh east of the Mekong. To get from Phnom Penh to Kampong Cham, there are several options for buses. The standard rules for bussing apply here, and try taking as early a bus as possible, to avoid arriving close to or after dusk, where your choice of accommodation will be limited.
The telephone numbers listed here are for locations in Phnom Penh. From Kratie , book at your guesthouse. Two departures a day, 7: Travel time is 4 hours with one main stop at Memot for buses taking the longer route along Highway 7. Some buses, including the 7: Most Minibuses and other non-Bus transports leave from or stop for a short time at the petrol station or just on the roadside of Highway 7 close to the Mekong bridge roundabout. These do, however, offer much more comfort and speed than a bus usually does, but make sure the vehicle's air conditioning is functional before getting in!
Trucks are also an option, but with much less comfort than buses or taxis, and are not advised. The city center is easily walkable and is found north of the National Highway. A couple of hotels and western-style restaurants cluster around the riverfront and a couple of streets further west, the central market area is found.
