Housing a network of channels, rivers and waterways, Peam Krasop Wildlife Sanctuary is a complicated yet unparalleled landscape known for its glorious mangroves, and protected coastal allure.
Like Botum Sakor, the best mode of transport is to hire a boat to guide you through this complicated yet majestic terrain. Peam Krasop is also home to an impressive list of wildlife, including dolphins and saltwater crocodiles, so be on the lookout for endangered birds such as the spotted greenshank.
Located just north of Botum Sakor and Koh Kong Island is Smach Meanchey district. Peam Krasop is in itself a coastal ecosystem, home to thousands of native Cambodians, who make a living through fishing off the wetlands. Don’t be surprised to see such inhabitants making their way upstream with the day’s catch, or to see families in their stilted wooden homes.
