Lots of mumblers and the occasional shouter.
Sonja Kill Hospital there has a very good reputation despite the name.

In Kampot I spend 2.5$ per time for meal.I think it is expensive. Some foods cheaper but some foods are same price in Phnom Penh.

I definitely think Kampot has lost a lot of its charm. It was great when the road was a dustbowl. Now it's hipster heaven.

I wouldn't go as far as calling it hipster heaven, yea theres a few, but it's main (foreigner) demographics tend to be stinky dreadlocked backpackers and retirees.

If I were to call anywhere in Cambodia hipster heaven, it would be Siem Reap, BKK1, Toul Sleng, Boueng Kak and TTP.
