Bask in the relaxed charm of Kampot! Nestled deep in the south of Cambodia, the many historical buildings of this city offer insight in a bygone era of French colonialism. Life here is mainly on the riverside promenade, with several cozy restaurants and bars lending an added hippie flair to the ambiance. Enjoy leisurely evening strolls along the promenade, soaking in the local life and watching small shops doing brisk business until late into the night. Or take a relaxing river cruise with a sundowner in hand, gazing at wildly sparkling fireflies as the sun sets in the distance. Not far from Kampot, rural Cambodia and authentic local villages offer warm welcome. With vast pepper plantations and famous Kampot salt farms to visit enroute, and the many hidden trails of Bokor National Park to explore, your visit will certainly be worthwhile.
