Bavet Location Profile
Bavet is the largest city in Svay Rieng province in the east of Cambodia and it is home to one of the four border crossings between Cambodia and neighbouring Vietnam.
Bavet has become synonymous with being the main point of entry for overland shipping between Cambodia and Vietnam on National Road 1, as well as being home to casinos and vital special economic zones.
However, Bavet has become a hub for not only trade and gambling, but investment and even land speculation and the town has attracted attention from many Chinese investors and it has seen development projects for casinos, hotels, restaurants and special economic zones (SEZ).
The SEZs on the outskirts of Bavet town are a huge economic hub and employ thousands of Cambodians.
