Pursat is a small town in western Cambodia, and is the capital of the province of the same name. The town itself isn't much of an attraction, nor does it contain anything that will distinguish it from the other small provincial capitals in this country. One great thing it does offer, however, is fantastic access to the Cardamom Mountains, giving it a healthy potential for eco-tourism.

Get in

Overland

  • Running through the province is the highway that runs between the national capital of Phnom Penh towards the southeast, and the second largest city in the country, Battambang towards the northwest. This is one of the better roads in the country.
  • Rail travel to Pursat is an option, as the trains that go between Phnom Penh and Battambang stop here. The ride is scenic, but agonizingly slow, and best be avoided.
