Kep kampot

Do you have a Cambodian trip report you want to share? Post it here, and feel free to link to your blog if it's a travel blog for Cambodia, South East Asia, or anywhere really. You can ask and answer questions about travel advice in Cambodia or just share your pictures and videos with us. Most people who live in or visit Cambodia have also checked out nearby countries like Vietnam, Thailand, Laos, Myanmar, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines, and you can get to most of these countries by traveling overland, so put any travel plans, reviews or questions here. Discussions about dirt bike trails in here as well.

Do it! It's only a few hours outside the city.

If you end up going to Kampot, it's a must that you go up Bokor Mountain and have a look around. You can see Vietnam on a clear day.

I found a few photoes . Taken 6-7 years ago.

Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

Wow, that's how I like to remember the place! That's how it was on my first visit, and we were able to roam around freely! Felt haunted, for real.

Kampot, is a small historical town in south-east Cambodia. It offers a wide range of beautiful places to see. Most of its economy based on Salt and Pepper production, fishing, fruit growing and light industry with domestic and foreign tourism. Bokor National Park is one of the most famous tourist attractions of this region.
Boston to NY bus tour is a nice choice for a family trip.

Ok, WTF ?
Hi Ackley,
Do you have anything to contribute apart from copy and pasting from wikipedia or whatever? It would be good to share your personal experiences, or your questions, concerning Cambodia. If you have been to Kep, Kampot, Bokor, then tell us about it.
Otherwise, I think we can all check out wiki/voyage/travel/pedia for ourselves. Thanks.

Great photos of Bokor, Duncan. I have some before/after photos (2008 - 2013) somewhere. It's a magic place, even now.
Also," interesting" to see what is planned up there - it' looks completely space - blocks of residential subdivisions etc. Seems like more money-washing ?

Maybe I'm crazy but that's all just wasted resource. Bokor casino there COULD be a great guesthouse with bar, club and restaurants. Even that church COULD be used. I'm betting it would look 100% better attacked with a pressure washer. And those mansions at Kep??? WTF! they're great. Queen Mums Mums place could be a guesthouse/museum/brit magnet. If a family can squat at one who do they know that no one else does? Maybe only a matter of time I spose, but this might be a good time to inquire.

as i understand it all the old villas are still owned by the rich in PP and NOT for sale ( i have inquired thru my gf an her family)
i love driving around there on the roads.
That whole area could one day be back to the way it was in the 60's
