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. On the whole, this is a sleepy town with marginal interest for the non-Khmer speaking traveller. Bread and pastries are terrible and the general prices for food and accommodation are higher than in the more touristed Battambang. Not worth the transit.

Get in


  • 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. Bus transport 2 USD from/to Battambang, 1.5 USD from/to Phnom Penh. One bus every half-hour in the morning and early afternoon. Check out agents on the NH5 to get a ticket and expect lots of stops once you are in the bus.
  • 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.
