In 2013 I did travel for 3 weeks in Cambodia. I did travel from Mondulkiri (Sen Monorom) to Ratanakiri (Ban Lung) and made a 1 night stop-over in Kratie. This is a small provincial town along the mighty Mekong River. And as I arrived early in the afternoon I had some time to walk around the little city and trying to get lost. If you have a day to spare in Kratie make an bicycle tour over the "Koh Trong" island in the Mekong river to see real Cambodian upcountry life. You could even stay overnight on the island. Kratie is an older town with some French colonial buildings, as while walking in the small streets I saw this "Restaurant & Dancing" building now in function as barber-shop and living-room. When you arrive in Kratie you will be dropped of at the central bus-station next to the market in the centre of town (see last photo).
