GeographyEdit

The town is located on National Road 11 between Nak Loeung and Kampong Cham. It is located about 2½ hours by road from Phnom Penh.

This quaint town is off the usual tourist trail and is uncrowded. It houses several old dilapidated colonial French Indochina era homes.

There is a large seasonal lake west of the city, which is usually dry from March to August.
