Stung Treng

Stung Treng is the provincial capital of the same name province in the northern part of Cambodia. It is the major city of both the district and province and has a population of around 30,000 that is made up of a mix of Khmer and Lao peoples.
The town lies along the National Highway 7, about 400 km from Phnom Penh and 50 km south of the Laos border.
It's a friendly, quiet country town situated on the confluence of the San River and the Mekong River. It actually sits on the banks of the San River, with the mighty Mekong coming into the picture on the northeastern outskirts of the town.

This is a nice place to kick back and chill out if you are on a circuit tour of the Northeast River Scene, from here to Laos.
The province of Stung Treng marks Cambodia's northern border with Laos and the point where the Mekong River enters Cambodia after swirling its way around the 4,000 Islands of southern Laos.
The quite large province stretches out from both sides of the banks of the Mekong, though just about all travellers to this part of Cambodia stay on the east bank, at the capital, which sits on the southern bank of the San River.
The province holds considerable promise for those with an adventurous spirit as a number of riverine trips can be undertaken.
