General information about Pursat

Generally, people come to Pursat to go visit the floating village of Kompong Luong around 30 km away. Exept maybe an artificial island shaped like a boat, Sampov Meas Island, where some people in the evening go for their daily sport session, there is not much interesting for visitors in the city itself. But you can still go visit marble sculptors which are numérous in the province. Some will welcome you and show you their work. However, the atmosphere of the city including the waterfront is nice. Maybe not enough to hold you here for more than a night or two.

Practical information and advices

We have found 2 ATM in Pursat on the main road. One next to the other just 400m before the abandoned train station.
Note that to visit Kompong Luong, it is more practical to stay in Krakor, the town next door. There are two guesthouses and you can go by walking to the starting point of the boats. Most buses from Battambang to Phnom Penh can drop you there.
