Samraong is an extremely isolated backwater that is only just beginning to pull itself from the murky depths of its war-torn past. It was once a frontline in the brutal Khmer Rouge civil war that raged across Cambodia. There would be little infrastructure, then it is little to see. It is worth for someone who need a serious dose of adventure.
Most foreigners in Samraong are doing development work, a sector in high demand due to poor living conditions and the abundance of unexploded ordnance in the area.
It is best to visit during the slightly cooler dry season from November to March. You many volunteer your time and join one of the NGOs or development groups helping out the locals.
