Arrival in Kampot
Today you’ll travel to sleepy Kampot, with it’s laid-back, old French colonial charm and riverside location it’s the perfect place to kick back for a couple of days. Once you’re settled into your central hotel, which used to be an old rice barn, you can amble along the promenade and soak up the views of the Elephant Mountains in the distance.
Today you’ll learn all about the area surrounding Kampot town. From pre-Angkorian caves and small mountain wells, used for worship by local people of Cambodian, Chinese and Vietnamese descent to pepper plantations and sea salt fields, Kampot has lots of discover. Heading back into town you’ll pass colonial buildings, fish markets and sample local Khmer coffee. For lunch you’ll visit the Teuk Chur rapids, visiting a durian plantation, rambutan fruit orchard and a handicraft village, where they make baskets from bamboo, along the way.
It’s time to say goodbye to laid-back Kampot and travel on to your next destination on your Cambodian adventure.
