What to See in Kampong Cham
Kampong Cham isn’t a city chock full of tourist attractions, but its colonial charm and atmosphere will endear itself to you. There are a few temples to see in the area, including one of the country’s mass graves.
- Nokor Wat: An Angkorian temple dating from the 11th century, containing a standard assortment of Angkor architecture. Some of the mausoleums are open to tourists and contain piles of bones and skulls from the Khmer Rouge’s genocidal reign. Inside one of the buildings is a very elaborate series of wall paintings, depicting torture and executions (of a religious nature), followed by scenes of heaven and the afterlife. This is not always an accessible building, as a Monk has to unlock it for you to enter. He usually does, though your driver may ask you to refrain. To get there by bicycle follow the road to Phnom Penh for about 1 km and turn left when you see a dusty road going down through a gate (there’s also a sign). The tourist police may ask you for money for their own purposes. If you are stingy, you can enter the temple from the other side for free. Don’t miss the beautiful sunset in the old Angkorian ruins. The visit to this site can easily be combined with a trip to the mountains Pros and Srei.
- If you are interested in Apsara dances (traditional Cambodian dances), there are occasional performances at 5 p.m. (mainly weekends and holidays) behind (east of) the Wat Nokor (Nokor Bachey Temple) by the children and teenagers looked after and educated by BSDA, a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) located at the temple site and managed by the monks. Entrance is free, donations are certainly welcome. Performances seem to be mainly on request, and the children and teenagers will be very happy to show off their talents.
- Pros and Srei Mountain: are praised in every tourist guide, however actually nowadays they are only two ‘brand new’ concrete buildings on the top of some small hills. If you don’t have too much time, it’s better to head for Phnom Hanchey.
- Located 20km north of Kampong Cham, Phnom Hanchey is another temple on a hilltop in the area. The view of the beautiful Cambodian landscape that you get when you go there however is certainly worth it! If you can make it up very early (around 5 am) you’ll see a gorgeous sunrise over the Mekong that will be on your right side all through the way.
- There is also a French lookout tower on the other side of the river, once used for monitoring river traffic. It’s still standing but in a decaying state. You can climb the stairs inside the tower and have a good view of the bridge, the Mekong, and the small village next to the tower. The stairs are difficult and dangerous to climb, however.
- An abandoned US airstrip that has been used by B52 bombers is a short distance west of town. To get there take the Highway 7 to Phnom Penh for about 3 km. Just before the factory on the left-hand side (looks a bit like a prison) there is a dirt road going to the right between street vendors and two red-white striped poles. Follow this road for about 2.5 km. There is not much left to see apart from the pavement of the airstrip and two decaying buildings next to it – a pillbox and the control tower probably. Leaving the airstrip on the left (west) will eventually lead to Mountain Pros and Srey. Going right (east) to the end of the strip and turning right again will lead you back to Kampong Cham.
- Chup Rubber Plantation: 19km East on National Highway 7, is a refreshing forest to visit by bicycle or motorbike. Early in the morning (before 10 am) you may come across workers harvesting the trees. The rubber factory can be visited ($1).
