Kampong Chhnang is the capital city of Kampong Chhnang Province, in central Cambodia.

It is located just west of the Tonle Sap River and is a noted port. The small city is connected to Phnom Penh by a national highway route and railway. Phnom Kong Rei is a landmark located north of the city across the Tonle Sap River.

The economy of the area is dominated by rice production and many locals live on floating fishing villages during the high-water monsoon season.[1]
