A charming, sprightly little town on the Mekong, Kratie is best known for its dolphins, specifically the Mekong Irrawaddy dolphins. Around 80 of the waning populace of these dolphins make their home off the town of Kampi, 20 kilometers north of Kratie. The whirling waters here are viewed as one of the best places on the planet to see this basically imperiled animal. In any case, Kratie is justified regardless of a drop-by for something other than these holy dolphins. It makes a magnificent base for investigating the waterway and encompassing regions, including the luckily lovely Koh Trong, a three-kilometer long island confronting the town's riverfront. We're going to totally mishandle "flawless" here, in light of the fact that it truly is. One of the prettiest spots we've found in Cambodia, with perfect, rich towns encompassed by palms and banana trees that you can investigate on a nine-kilometer cycle trail, where you'll discover coasting towns, a long shoreline made of sand waves, a portion of the biggest mango trees we've ever observed, shocking perspectives over the Mekong, and a lot of comforting grins. Toss in a stop for a coconut or two, and we think you may have discovered heaven. Kratie itself too has enough provincial engineering to reward vagabonds, and also a decent modest bunch of inviting guesthouses, and a sprinkling of respectable eateries that have grown up to meet the relentlessly developing number of vacationers. The encompassing towns satisfy dreams of rich, riverside Cambodia, with green paddy and delightfully finished stilted wooden homes shaded by thick palms. Going south is the little riverside town of Chhlong, once home to a bustling pioneer station whose shabby remnants can be found, including the beautiful Le Relais Hotel, which has been shut throughout the previous five years, however laborers were beavering without end in the grounds when we went to in April 2016, so who knows. The trip to Sambor is particularly dazzling for its tree-lined paths and beautiful towns, however we were significantly more struck by the ride down to Chhlong whose course is lined by tall-stilted homes standing pleased in fields that will undoubtedly be overflowed in less parched circumstances of the year. In transit back, you can drop into the Roko Kandal pagoda, one of the littlest and loveliest in the nation. In the event that you need to investigate promote, you can do as such with a guide or visit administrator, or under your own particular steam. There are pontoon trips, climbing, cycle trips, homestays, outdoors, angling, birdwatching and kayaking to be finished. Numerous guesthouses run their own particular visits, however there are different administrators around the local area that merit looking at.
