Kang Meas District (Khmer: ស្រុកគងមាស; "Ring of Gold") is a district (srok) located in Kampong Cham Province, Cambodia. The district capital is Peam Chi Kang town located some 13 kilometres south of the town of Prey Toteung on National Highway 7 and is 110 kilometres by road from Phnom Penh. National road 70 provides access to the district from the highway and meets provincial road 223 at the district capital. This long relatively narrow district parallels the northern bank of the Mekong for about 40 kilometres between Kampong Cham (city) and Mukh Kampul District in Kandal Province. As the district is low lying much of the land area of the district is inundated when the Mekong rises during the wet season.
