Cambodia Kandal & Takeo

Kandal, Takeo & Kampong Speu

Kandal attracts visitors both due to its convenient location and interesting sites. Oudong Mountain is one of the most-visited sites in the Phnom Penh vicinity, and was the site of the royal capital from the 17th to 19th centuries. It includes the burial site of King Monivong and offers nice views over the area.

Takeo is home to several Angkorian temples, the Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Centre, the Takeo Provincial Museum and the Angkor Borei Museum, which houses relics of Phnom Da from the 16th century, as well as artifacts from the pre-Angkorian Funan and Chenla kingdoms. The Choub Poul Temple is a sacred site, and features an unusual stegosaurus relief.

A good option for eco-tourism, Kampong Speu is also known for palm wine and palm sugar. Kiriom National Park provides various homestays (in Chambok), camping and small-scale resort options.
