Amleang: An idyllic rural getaway with a dark past in Kampong Speu

The scenic views of the Chhreav mountain range in Kampong Speu province are attracting nature lovers to stay in rural homestays. Not far from the foot of Chhreav mountain, in Thpong district’s Amleang commune about 120km from Phnom Penh, is Chez Mme BO Homestay.

Set on 20ha of land, the homestay features five traditional Khmer wooden houses with gardens growing tropical fruits and vegetables and a beautiful backyard for camping overlooking the mountain range.
