Attractions in Kampong Thom

KAMPONG THOM The second largest province in Cambodia. Kampong Thom is starting to draw more visitors thanks to the pre-Angkorian temples of Sambor Prei Kuk and other lesser-known Angkorian sites. During the time of the French, it was home to a large inrity group called the Stieng, but they have long been estimated into Cambodian society. Farming and fishing are mainstay of the population, Stung Sen widing its way through the province and into the Tonle Sap River in western Kampong Thom.
