KRACHEH

Kracheh along the Mekong River is famous for its Irawaddy Dolphins.  The Dolphins are endangered, but many conservation efforts are in place as well as the local enconomy realizing the tourist potential. The town is more often frequented by visitors making their way to and from Laos, but only 5 hours from Phnom Penh, it is a good get away.  In addition to the dolphins, Kracheh is rich in French Colonial Architecture.  North of town is a Wat with 100 columns.  Life is vibrant along the Mekong.
