Lying in Cambodia’s South East corner very near the border to Vietnam lies the sleepy town of Kep. Once a premier beach town for wealthy visitors from Phnom Penh, Kep is now better known for it’s oceanfront Crab shacks. Sunsets were spent watching the locals trawling the shores for the soft shell crabs that ended up on diner’s plates in the many rustic shacks overlooking the water. Along with Siem Reap and Angkor this was our favourite place in Cambodia. A great place to relax, visit the nearby National park and explore the area on bikes. We can definitely highly recommend our accommodation here, Sea View Bungalows.
So this is our lost stop in Cambodia before crossing the nearby border into Vietnam. The only negatives we can think of during our short stay are the dusty and bumpy roads and the very overcrowded local transport. These were a very small sacrifice and far outweighed by the freindly people and laid back vibe we found everywhere we went. The weather is just great at this time of year – you may need a long sleeve for the evenings! The Khmer cuisine was a real surprise – delicious! Our only regret may be that we didn’t lengthen our stay!
