Pailin is a city in Pailin Province, in the Cardamom and Elephant Mountains region of Cambodia.

Contents

Understand

The province of Pailin is a former Khmer Rouge stronghold, now a backwater border town.

Get in

By Road

Pailin is 80km from Battambang on National Highway 57. The highway was resurfaced in 2011, making for easy access, even during the wet season. A couple of bus companies run a service from Battambang to Pailin, costing between $3 and $5 a ticket, and taking roughly 2 hours.

Get around

A small town, Pailin is easily covered on foot. Motodops will give a lift anywhere in town for about 1,000 riel and will drive to the Thai (16 km by road) border for about $3-5.

See

There is a Burmese stupa dating from the 1920s, Wat Phnom Yat.
