Kratie is one of the provinces in eastern Cambodia. The capital of this province is Kratie town. Although located on the riverbanks of the Mekong, which stretches for over 140 km along the city line from north to south, it is surprisingly one of Cambodia's least populated provinces.
Beyond the riverbanks are dense mangrove forests home to abundant wildlife and flora. Kratie is a popular destination among the tourists who arrive in large numbers to experience the vibrant ecosystem and a whole river town with colonial architecture and authentic Cambodian countryside.
