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 …

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 :)
