Located in the heart of the Indochinese peninsula, Cambodia is located between Thailand (in the west), Vietnam (in the east) and Laos (in the north). It is bordered by the Gulf of Thailand (Siam) to the southwest.

Border with Thailand:

There are now six border posts between Cambodia and Thailand that can be reached by bus. All issue a visa in one direction or the other. These eight points stretch over a distance of 450 kilometers and are roughly divided equally.

  1. Cham Yeam in the province of Koh Kong. This crossing point generally accepts electronic visas. It is the only one in this case between Cambodia and Thailand.
  2. Prum on the outskirts of the city of Païlin.
  3. Daung in the province of Battambang.
  4. Poïpet in the province of Bantey Meanchey.
  5. O'Smach in the province of Udor Meanchey.
  6. Chuam in the province of Udor Meanchey

Border with Vietnam:

  1. Moc Bai (Tay Ninh province) / Bavet (Svay Reang province)
  2. Tinh Bien (An Giang province) / Phnom Den (Takeo province)
  3. Xa Mat (Tay Ninh province) / Trapeang Plong (Kampong Cham province)
  4. Vinh Xuong  (Chau Doc province) /  Kaom Samnoar (Kandal province

Border with Laos
There are now two border posts between Cambodia and Laos. Both issue a visa for these neighboring countries. These two points are separated by a border of 250 kilometers.

  1. Stung Treng in the homonymous province.
  2. O'Yadav in the province of Ratanakiri, in the far north-east of Cambodia.

The land is medium, with a peak at nearly 1800 m (southwest), a few plateaus to the north (the Dangrek Range, 400 m) and two low mountain ranges. (Cardamom and Elephant) in the west. The south coast borders the Gulf of Siam about 250 km, with some pretty beaches towards Sihanoukville and Kep and mangroves.

Let's not forget the forests, which surround the country from south-west to north-east, but which are still suffering more from illegal deforestation.

Tonle Sap Lake is a vital source for residents and inhabitants of floating villages. It watered the rice fields bringing a large amount of alluvium to the agricultural land.
