LEGENDS
Originally Kompong Som was a land in Sre Ambel district, Koh Kong province. And Sre Ambel district has a gulf that extends to Sihanoukville today. There are all kinds of mangroves and forests, especially the rattan species known as rattan and many species of vultures. The people in the area are very few and their livelihoods are poor. So they make their living by hiking and fishing. Some people cut down the rattan floats, floated through the water, and parked at the edge of a pond to sell on their roofs and to sell some money. People always bring the rattan to park at the water station every time the people in the area are called Kompong Som. Whereas people in the East of Kampong Speu are visiting when they visit the West District, they always say (go to Kompong Som, Sre Ambel District). Why is Kompongsom called Preah Sihanouk?
