Siem Pang District is a district located in Stung Traeng Province, in north-east Cambodia. According to the 1998 census of Cambodia, it had a population of 13,517.  The Khmer Khe language is spoken in Siem Pang District.

From Stung Traeng, drive 50km north on NH7, turn right, and proceed another 52km on an unsealed road. There are no longer any public boats along the Tonlé Kong (SeKong) to/from Stung Traeng.

A prosperous town that stretches for about 6km along the Tonlé Kong, Siem Pang is a good place to observe rural life or just relax by the riverside in a remote outpost.

Siem Pang acts as the western gateway to Virachey National Park and is renowned for its rich wildlife.
