Day 552 The river teased us for two days in Kampot. Looking all cool and refreshing but really nowhere to swim. Couple this with a mostly deserted town and we were itching for change already. Whenever Kampot was mentioned Kep was right there in the same sentence, like Kitchener-Waterloo it was always, Kampot-Kep. Only twenty five kilometers down …
... have to cross tomorrow. So we booked our bus to cross the border the next day and found a place to stay. The first room we got the wifi and tv were not working so we decided to get another place. We did not expect it to be such a big deal since we were only in the room for 5 min. The lady did not understand english and was not going to give us our passports back and was demading us to pay her. Eventually she must have gotten tired of arguing with us cause she gave us our passports. We ...

weeks and then move to another location.
The older children spend their days in the boat with their father to
help with the catch while mom stays at the hut with the babies and
animals. A big catch means the family

One of the main reasons for choosing to spend six months in South-East Asia was due to watching the Rick Stein series 'Far Eastern Odyssey' when it first aired in 2009. Two of the locations highlighted by the show were Kampot and Kep in southern Cambodia and our final stop off on the Cambodia leg of our trip was a visit both of these places.
We started out in Kampot, which is best known for its pepper plantations, Kampot pepper has the same classification as ...
... never know who the mysterious guy our driver kept talking about was either. Our driver was very embarrassed and looked very defeated so we decided to just head back home and get a 5 buck refund each. The guy that ran the tours was very apologetic and gave us our refund and we were so tired and over it that we couldn't be bothered making a fuss. We headed back to the hostel for a relax and shower (to get all the dust off us) then went to Titch's again for ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsKukuluku Beach Club Kep
We came here for a night or two and ended up staying six. This place is a bit out of town but it is only a two dollar ride to the market. It is a bit older than a few of the others we seen but it has character and super friendly staff. Petra is awesome. It is low season and we had the resort to ourselves for the entire time. The pool is clean and welcoming in the heat. What a great place to chill and relax.
