One of the small province capitals in Cambodia is Stung Treng, southeast Cambodia. It's barely noticed by tourism, most tourists who come along here have just a glance on Stung Treng through the bus window on the way between the 4000 Islands and Kratie or Ratanakiri.

It's connected via national road 7 to Phnom Penh in the south and leading north to Laos. There it's national road 13, on which are the 4000 Islands, Pakse, Savannaketh, Thakek and all the way up to Vientiane. All the long road is relatively well made up now by Chinese investors.
There is also an airport some 4km out of town. But it seems, there are no flights anymore. Haven't seen a single plane.
