Ongoing road improvements are steadily improving access to the formerly remote provincial capital of TBENG MEANCHEY, around 150km north of Kompong Thom along NR64 and 100km south of Preah Vihear temple (note that Tbeng Meanchey itself is sometimes confusingly referred to as Preah Vihear or Preah Vihear City, and the temple itself as Prasat Preah Vihear). There’s not much to the town itself, which sprawls north for more than 2km from the traffic circle at its southern end, with wide, straight red-dirt roads laid out on a simple grid, although it makes a useful place for an overnight stop en route to Preah Vihear.
