Kratie is a small city on the banks of the Mekong River in Cambodia. There are intact buildings with French colonial architecture mixed with modern architecture. If you take the bus from Siem Reap, you take 9 hours, and from Phnom Penh is faster, about 6 hours.
The best experience associated with Kratie’s name is nothing more than watching river dolphins swimming on the Mekong. This is a rare freshwater dolphin standing on the brink of extinction, leaving only a few few individuals. The most beautiful spot to see dolphins is from Krampi, 20km from Kratie. When you arrive in Kampi, you will have to rent a boat. This is extremely easy because the boat house is extremely welcoming on board. For just a few dollars, you can float in the water for 1-2 hours to admire the precious dolphins swimming.
