Kampot is known for its spectacular winding river. It makes a prime riverside destination. There are a variety of guest houses, hotels, and hostel located alongside the riverbed and it's here that you want to stay and relax. A resort named "Bamboo Bungalow" is the absolutely perfect spot.It's a bonus that the food at the resort is also reasonably priced as well as the ability to rent moped among other activities.
Kampot isn’t difficult to drive and it’s nowhere near as manic as the capital city, and it’s wonderful to have the flexibility to create your own itinerary and take your time visiting the best spots.
These are the best Kampot activities: going kayaking, standing up paddle boarding, and swimming off the beach. You can rent kayaks for $6/hour and paddle boards for $8/hour.
Kampot is the land of salt and pepper. The salt field is just outside of town. Salt water is brought from the sea 5 kilometers away into prepared clay fields and left to evaporate until salt crystals form.
Further afield towards the beach town Kep is pepper plantation that produces some of the best pepper in the world. The green berries are sun-dried to make black pepper, while the riper red peppercorns are boiled to remove the skin leaving the white pepper seed inside.
Kep is a small coastal town 30 minutes from Kampot. It’s another sleepy town but lacks a town center, so Kampot makes the better base for this area. It’s known for its crab market and butterfly-filled Kep National Park. From Kep, you can take a 30-minute boat ride ($25 for the whole boat) to Rabbit Island (Koh Tonsay), a tranquil place to spend the day.
