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 relax for a couple of days. Once you’re settled into your hotel, you can amble along the promenade and soak up the views of the Elephant Mountains in the distance.
Explore Kampot province
This morning you’ll set out with your local guide to learn all about the area surrounding Kampot town, from pre-Angkorian caves and small mountain wells, used for worship by local people to pepper plantations and sea salt fields – Kampot has lots of discover. Heading back towards town you’ll pass colonial buildings, fish markets and stop to sample some local Khmer coffee.
Around lunchtime, you’ll visit Teuk Chur rapids – a nice section of the river where the locals like to swim. Here you can stop off and have a bite to eat before you head back into Kampot town. On the way back, you’ll visit a durian plantation, rambutan fruit orchard and a handicraft village, passing through the lush landscape all along the way. Your evening is free to relax back in the town.
It’s time to say goodbye to laid-back Kampot and travel on to the next destination on your Cambodian adventure.
