Kampot/Kep Destination

Kampot City sits along the east side of the Kampong Bay River near the base of the Elephant Mountains and is of quite different character from the beach town of Sihanouk Ville. Kampot city is an old provincial capital of quiet lanes and colonial period architecture. A partially destroyed bridge, mombed in the war, sits city center over the river, the unique appearance of its haphazard repair is almost iconic. Use the city as a base to explore and tour the sourrounding countryside and as a stepping stone to the nearyby beaches and islands of Kep, the Bokor Hill Station and the rest of southeastern Cambodia. Come the end of the day in Kampot City, a little riverside cafe or pub is the plce to be - relaxing curbside over a glass of wine, watching the sun slowly set behind the Elephant Mountains.

Attraction

ATRRACTIONS:

 

Caves near Kampot: There are several caves dot the landscape between Kampot and Kep.  Make sure to bring torch and wear shoes suitable for climbing on rocks.

The caves of Phnom Chhnork – Pre-Angkorian ruin set in a limestone cave amongst stalagmites and stalactites that are slowly growing back into the ruin.

The cave at Phnom Sla Ta’aun: Plain by comparison to other caves, but still an interesting climb. Look for the huge rock balanced in a hole in the ceiling. Small Shrine.

The cave at Phnom Sasear: Also known as the “White Elephant Cave”. Located next to a colorful pagoda. The stairs up the side of the out-cropping provide a beautiful view of the countryside, especially during the wet season.

Knai Bang Chatt Resort: An oasis of peace and quiet not too far from the capital city. A small jewel tucked away in Kep on the coast of Cambodia. A perfect get away place for everyone.
Phnom Bokor: A mountaintop collection of crumbling buildings (hotel, casino, church, royal residence, etc.) originally constructed by French authorities in the early 1920s as a complement to the already popular Kep resort area. A newly build Thansur Bokor hotel consist of luxury hotel rooms, casino, spa and other countless entertainment.  Beside trekking and scenery view, some of the popular attractions on the mountain are Old colonial building, porpokvil waterfall and Yeay Moa monument.
Pepper Plantations: Kampot pepper, grown in Kampot province, has been renowned for more than a century as some of the highest quality pepper in the world-its distinct flavor and pugnacity, intense but light taste with fresh lingering aromas has long been a prized in the finest French kitchens.
Kep Beach: A single, kilometer-long crescent of sand near the tip of the Kep peninsula, bounded by rocks at either end and the oceanfront road along the back. Coarse sand, and warm shallow water. It’s a very average swimming beach. A good place to catch fresh seafood.
