General Information
The Kampong Thom Province is located at the central point of the Kingdom of Cambodia and has a total land area of 15,061km2 divided into 8 districts, 81 communes and 737 Villages. The province is divided into two parts. The eastern part of National Road 6, covers 70% surface consisting of forests and plateau, rich in natural resources which are good for agriculture, forestry and animal husbandry. The Western of part of National Road 6, covers 30% surface is the plain area extending to Tonle Sap Lake. This area is good for rice cultivation and fishing for supporting the needs of the province and exporting to other.
The original name of Kampong Thom was "Kampong Pus Thom" or the Kampong of the big snakes (Kampong is a peer, a landing on a river). This name was derived from a couple of big snakes that were said to live in cave at the Sen river and which people saw on the holy Buddhist days. During the French colony in Cambodia, the French ruled and divided Cambodian territory into provinces, and named them according the spoken words of the people called ?Kampong Thom Province? until now.
Kompong Thom is starting to draw more visitors thanks to the pre-Angkoria temples of Sambor Prei Kuk and other lesser-known Angkorian sites. During the time of French, it was home to a large minority group called the Stieng, but they have long been assilimated into Cambodian Society. Farming and fishing are the mainstay of the population, Stung Sen winding its way through the province and into the Tonle Sap river in western Kompong Thom. 
The province was hard hit by the long civil war and came under particularly fierce US bombardment in the early 1970s in an effort to reopen the severed road between Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. There are only two roads that visitors tend to use in Kompong Thom Province: national highway No 6, which links Phnom Penh and Siem Reap; and national highway 64 north to Tbeng Meanchey and Preah Vihear Province. national highway 6 towards Phnom Penh is in good shape, but west towards Siem Reap is very unpleasant (at the time of writing). national highway 64 is good in the dry season, messy in the wet season, but in line for an all-weather renovation.
