Since the very first day that the Cambodian government opened Anlong Veng, a district in Oddar Meanchey that lies on Vietnam’s border, to the public, more and more tourists are getting attracted to the place. The rich Cambodian history that used to bring a nightmare to a lot of people, is now slowly being embraced by people around the world.
During the years between 1975 and 1979, the place and its nearby towns were considered the last fortress of Kampuchea, the fanatical Maoists who used to rule Cambodia. Only it was in April 1998 that the place became peaceful after the leader named Pol Pot, who was behind a bloody guerrilla war, died.
