Krong Chbar Mon (Khmer: ក្រុងច្បារមន) is the capital of Kampong Speu Province in central Cambodia.

Most of the townspeople speak only Khmer, but some are conversant in Mandarin (you can usually find them employed by the small coffeeshops/restaurants or shops).

The centre of the town hosts a market, surrounded by bicycle shops, a dispensary and small restaurants. There is a guesthouse (Pheng Ang Guesthouse) just minutes away for travellers.

Chbar Mon has numerous privately run schools and orphanages run by social and missionary organizations from Singapore, the Philippines and other countries.
