Sleepy Kampot is one of Cambodia’s hidden gems. Although at first glance it looks like a modest colonial town, it doesn’t take long for it to reveal itself as a magical destination. Nestled next to the river, this is the kind of place where you can enjoy lazy days and afternoons soaking up the relaxing and peaceful atmosphere. Adding to the charm of lovely Kampot is its famous pepper, which is a key ingredient in Khmer cooking throughout the country. It makes a perfect souvenir, so don’t be afraid to pick some up at the market and take it home.
