Samraong is a city in North-western Cambodia.

Highway 68 is now paved and heads south, linking the town with Kralanh on National Highway 6 and hence Siem Reap

Paramount Angkor Transport serves the town with buses.

There is a border crossing with Chong Chom in Thailand's Surin Province at O'Smach, about 35 km north of Samraong.
