KOH KONG ATTRACTIONS
Koh Kong (Khmer: ខេត្តកោះកុង, Kaôh Kŏng [kɑh koŋ], is a province (khaet) of Cambodia. Its capital is Khemarak Phoumin (Koh Kong). The province has been the site of a Sino-Cambodian port development project in Dara Sakor. The project is planned to spread over 45,000 hectares, to include casinos, golf courses, and resorts. A 20 kilometre stretch of coastline will be turned into a deep-water port to accommodate cruise ships as well as freight. Near the port, an airfield with a runway 3,400 metres is longer than needed for commercial flights, while its turning bays are too small for civilian aircraft. Therefore, analysts suspect that the port project is a Cambodian-Chinese civil-military collaboration that will permit the Chinese navy to use the facilities as a forward operating base. Responding to US concerns, Prime Minister Hun Sen has denied the charge, pointing out that the Cambodian constitution “…has no provision for accommodating foreign military bases on its soil. From 1795 to 1904 the area was under Siamese administration with the local name of “Koh Kong”. During the reign of King Mongkut the name Patchan Khiri Khet was given to the city as the area falls at the same latitude as another city of Prachuap Khiri Khan which also had its name changed during the same year. In 1904, the region and the city of Trat was ceded to French Indochina in exchange of French troop evacuation from Chanthaburi. In 1907 Trat was returned to Siam in exchange for the Siamese province of Inner Cambodia while Koh Kong remained part of French Cambodia.
KOH KONG BRIDGE
The Koh Kong Bridge is a bridge in Koh Kong Province, Cambodia. The bridge crosses the Kaoh Pao river, linking the province capital of Khemarak Phoumin (also known as Koh Kong City) to Pyam, near the Thai border. It is the longest bridge in Cambodia at 1900 metres, and it was inaugurated in April 2002. Koh Kong Bridge was built by LYP Group, a large Cambodian business and construction company started and owned by local tycoon and state senator Ly Yong Phat. LYP Group was supposed to operate the bridge for 30 years, as part of the construction deal, but the Cambodian State bought the bridge in October 2017 and crossing has been free since then. Koh Kong Bridge is an important part of National Road 48 (NR 48), linking Koh Kong Province to the capital of Phnom Penh. In a larger scheme, the bridge also finalised a long land transport route, connecting Thailand with Vietnam.
KHUN CHANG KUN PHAEN
Khun Chang Khun Phaen (Thai: ขุนช้างขุนแผน, pronounced [kʰǔn tɕʰáːŋ kʰǔn pʰɛ̌ːn]) is a long Thai epic poem which originated from a legend of Thai folklore and is one of the most notable works in Thai literature. The work’s entire length is over 20,000 couplets. Khun Chang and Khun Phaen are the leading male characters, where “Khun” was a junior feudal title given for male commoners. The story recounts the adventurous and amorous struggles of the three main protagonists. Much of their relationship can be described as a love triangle. Khun Phaen (dashing but poor) and Khun Chang (rich but ugly) compete for the lovely Wanthong from childhood for over fifty years. Their stories transpire amid the larger backdrop of national events, including two wars, several abductions, a suspected revolt, an idyllic sojourn in the forest, two court cases, trial by ordeal, jail, and treachery. Ultimately the King of Ayutthaya condemns Wanthong to death for failing to choose between the two men. The KCKP epic existed for a long time as an orally transmitted poem among Thai troubadours. The poem was first written down and published in printed form in 1872, and a standard edition first published in 1917–1918. Like many works with origins in popular entertainment, it is fast-moving and replete with heroism, romance, sex, violence, folk comedy, magic, horror, and passages of lyrical beauty. In Thailand, the story is universally known. Children learn passages at school, and the poem is a source of songs, popular aphorisms, and everyday metaphors. A standard edition of KCKP, as published by the National Library, is 1085-pages long. A complete English prose translation of KCKP was published by Chris Baker and P. Phongpaichit in 2010.
TA TAI WATERFALL
Ta Tai waterfall is a semi-natural site located in Ta Tai village, Ta Tai commune, Smach Meanchey district, about 20 kilometers east of Koh Kong provincial town along National Road 48. There are 84 families living in this area. They earn their living by fishing and hunting. The waterfall has two stages. The first stage is 5 to 6 meters high; the second stage is 12 to 15 meters high. Ta Tai waterfall was developed as a model site in Koh Kong to attract local and foreign tourists.Ta Tai waterfall is also known as Ta Eysei waterfall. According to legend, a man named Ta Tai and his son went to the waterfall to fish because the waterfall was the joining point between fresh water and salt water. There was a storm and the resulting floods carried away Ta Tai’s son. Four or five days later, however, the boy was found at the same spot from where he disappeared. When Ta Tai questioned his son, the boy said: “There is someone who took me to a secret place, where he turned into a vampire and wanted to kill me. But suddenly Ta Eysei (a hermit) appeared to save me and took me back.” After hearing the story, Ta Tai and his wife believed that their son was saved by Ta Eysei or Neak Sachang (another mane of hermit). Ever since then, the Waterfall has been called Ta Eysei Waterfall or Ta Tai Waterfall.
