Relax in the sleepy town of Kampot after climbing up and down temples in Siem Reap.
Kampot, a sleepy French colonial town built in the 1800s and situated at the base of the Elephant Mountains, is the perfect place to relax after climbing up and town temples. In a town so small that a bicycle is almost too much, friendly smiles, wide-open streets, French colonial architecture, and a restful atmosphere, will make you forget about time and your worries. Watch the sun’s rays reflect off the river as it sets over the mountains, while you enjoy stimulating conversation in one of the plenty restaurants that line the riverfront. Tomorrow, you may go and see if the rumors of the haunted old casino next to the French church in Bokor Mountain is true, or maybe you will go and cool off in the river, or maybe go and see one of the many other attractions, but that is tomorrow, or the day after, as time does not matter here. A trip to Cambodia is not complete, without discovering Kampot, a town that will create memories and fill your photo album, while you unwind at your own pace.
