We arranged our transport from the CBET office in Chi Phat, so everything was a breeze. Taxi ready to pick us up when we crossed the river only to drop us at the bus stop. No problem! So the bus was over a ½ hour late, I'm sure everything will be OK and we won't miss our connection. We were in air conditioned comfort. No worry that the bus-boy was …
We finally got into Kampot at about 7:30pm and really wanted to stay at a place called Olly's, however it was a good 3km out of town and over the river so didn't want to risk it not having a vacancy and being left on the side of the road in the dark. After fighting off all the tuktuk drivers, we checked into the closest place we could find within …
... at, but we wanted to see and learn more about the Vietnam war. The subtle differences from the rest of Vietnam were busier streets, guys who slept on their motorbikes parked directly on the streets and the nightlife which encompassed people sitting on a thin pillow on the sidewalks to enjoy drinks with friends. With only two days in the area we spent one full day learning more about the Vietnam war. We took a tour up to Cu Chi tunnels where the Vietcong developed and underground world ...
... the river and saw a beautiful sunset the first day. The next day we went on a sunset cruise and when we got on the boat, we thought we'd see no sunset at all since the sun was behind clouds.

Midway through the trip, they stopped the boat and gave people ...

The trip was 2 and a half hours and was $5 each, including a free beer! After the sunset cruise we went to a local restauarnt for some food and then headed home to pack for our trip the next day. Tomorrow we are off to Sihanoukville, which is the main beach area in ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsOlly's Place Kampot
We stayed at Olly's on the recommendation from a friend. We found beautiful stilted bungalows for an amazing low price. The WIFI was reliable, the food excellent and the blue's music in the evening over candlelight and fairy lights topped it all off along the riverfront. Would have loved to stay longer :)
