Until the end of the 1990s, Koh Kong was one of the least secure parts of the country. Elements of the Khmer Rouge based in the lower Cardamoms still posed a serious threat to locals and travellers. The area was the scene of intermittent fighting between the government and Democratic Kampuchea forces until 1998.
As of 2019, a deep-sea port is being developed in Koh Kong by Cambodian tycoon Ly Yong Phat.
