Here for many is a visa run, but is also a beautiful place full of natural wonders and a great stopover before visiting the rest of Cambodia. Onward travel to Phnom Penh, Sihanoukville, Kep, Kampot, Siem Reap to Vietnam or Laos can be done with bus routes through Cambodia.
The spectacular Cardamom Mountains, pristine and mostly untouched jungle, offer many waterfalls to cool down with a swim.KbalChhay, KohPor, KbalChhay, PrekKoh, Veal Achaut, and Tatai waterfalls to name a few. The largest mangroves in Asia are located here on the coast.
In addition to trekking and exploring the forest in the Cardamom Mountains, there are boat trips available to Koh Kong island and other islands in the vicinity. With bicycles and motorcycles available for rent, there are great options for self exploration in Koh Kong City in Cambodia and the wider province.

Travellers Cheques – Cambodia
It is now not possible to cash travelers cheques in Koh Kong, nor I believe anywhere in Cambodia. A number of people from PP and Sihanoukville have recently passed through Koh Kong on their way to Thailand to cash cheques. The three banks in Koh Kong, Acleda, Canadia and Cambodia Public Bank have confirmed that none of their branches now cash travellers cheques. However if you have an account with Cambodia Public Bank they will accept travelers cheques but they take a month to clear.
