Siem Pang, Cambodia

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.

Johor Bahru is the capital city of Johor in southern Malaysia, located north of Singapore. Johor Bahru is the southernmost city on the Asia mainland. The Johor Bahru City has a population of 1,334,188 people with area of 185 kilometres square.

It is situated on the Straits of Johor (also known as the Straits of Tebrau), which separate Malaysia and Singapore but linked by the 1.05 km causeway built in 1923. The Johor-Singapore Causeway links the city to Singapore with a six-lane road and a railway line. The Malaysia-Singapore Second Link bridge, located west of the metropolitan area, was constructed in 1997 to alleviate congestion on the Causeway.
