Koh Preah is a village situated on a small island in the middle of the Mekong River at 35km from Stung Treng Town. Koh Preah is an untouched tourist destination. It is rich in natural resources and is an enriching experience to understand Khmer culture and the Cambodia rural way of life, providing insights into local beliefs and cooking skills of the local people.
The trip to Koh Preah is an unforgettable travel experience. You will cycle along the local gravel roads following the Mekong River, passing many local families and their rice fields. The stretch of the Mekong to the South of Koh Preah is one of the most beautiful parts of the Mekong River, especially when travelling downstream through the twisting, intertwining channels, painted with small uninhabited islands, undulating sandbanks, rapids and flooded forests.
