Kep too busy?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Kep too busy?

Post by dave the wave »

I remember a few years ago Kep was only busy on Saturdays. Now it seems to be every day the beach and roads are packed with locals from PP. Maybe paradise lost?

I don't know what days you are referring to. But it might have been because it was Pchhum Beun. Because of the bad reputation Sihanouk's has now locals are taking their business elsewhere along the coast.

Ya it's been festival but still today very busy and even before it started. Looks like Thursday to Monday is the new weekend. They have a bunch of jet skis and blowup games on the beach now and it is getting worse. I am getting tired of looking at drunks and piles of garbage. You have to avoid the busy days but then what is there to do?
I was thinking of rent a bungalow monthly and staying for a few months but now having second thoughts..

There's nothing to do in Kep any day of the week. We're you planning on hanging out on kep beach 6 days a week?

After.the demise of sihanoukville, Kep is the only other beachside resort town left for Cambodians to visit.

Go rent a house in stung treng if you want to avoid the crowds.
