The small town of Kratie, with a population of just under 40,000 permanent residents, is the capital city of Kratie Province. Kratie Province is one of the most rural and remote parts of Cambodia. Most of the population live along the banks of the Mekong River which runs north to south through the province and contains hundreds of river islands, some of which are permanently populated.
Kratie gets a small number of visitors and the town has guesthouses, restaurants and bars specifically catering to the needs of foreign tourists making this remote and relatively undeveloped part of the country easily accessible to holiday makers. The major tourist attraction in Kratie is boat trips to see the rare Irrawaddy River Dolphin. A population of elusive river dolphins, variously estimated as being between 80 and 120, is most easily spotted near the town of Kampi, about 20 km to the north of Kratie and easily reached in a day trip from Kratie town. The local boat tour operators in Kampi have a pretty good idea where to find the dolphins although seeing one during a boat trip is no means guaranteed. The other major point of interest in Kratie Province is Sambor, which is a settlement pre-dating the Angkor Period which hosts a variety of interesting temples, the most famous of which is Wat Sorsor Muoy Roi (the ‘Temple of 100 columns’).
