... tour we did some shopping at the local market and indulged in some Mexican food. The next morning Tanner had a early morning flight out. In a flash he was gone and it was just the two of us again. It was a blast sharing our adventures with Tanner and seen so much with the time he had. He definitely gave us a new spark as we started living through his fresh outlook on SE Asia. The following days in Hoi An were slowed down a pace or two (back to our regular pace). We ended up hitting up ...
... There were lots of ladies selling the crabs they had been catching that day and barbecues to cook them on. They caught the crabs in baskets about 200 metres out into the sea, you could see the men standing out in the sea and bringing in the baskets. We wanted to try crab for dinner so we opted for a big fish on the barbecue for lunch which was really nice. We then biked along the coastline and into the small town which had a nice little beach and a giant ...
... some fresh crab from the local crab market. It's a really good setup, you pay a couple of dollars for the locals to fish out their crab baskets from the sea, inspect them yourself (I held a live one for which I'm proud) and steam them in the adjacent ovens - hey presto, fresh crab for lunch and they were delicious, if you can look past the aggro of sucking out the meat and getting a bit grubby in the process.
After polishing off three crabs we cycled around the ...
... lots of locals and Vietnamese holiday makers enjoying themselves which we have not witnessed very much in other SE Asian countries.
An hour latter we are dragged away from paradise for the return journey home and see quite a lot of land that has been cleared which we fear may be for a big tourist development. Just on cue we pass a huge billboard advertising a massive hotel complex. The good news is that 70% of the island is protected from development.
... I think it was a good move as he provided us a couple of shortcuts. When we got there Lauren wasn't actually interested in going caving, but I was - so our bicycle guide became my cave guide (I assume he was running a scouting mission on the bike for just this reason). The flock of kids at the caves assured us we didn't need to lock our bikes and promised to look after our helmets. Lauren was more than a little dubious and made sure to secure everything. ...

We looked at five places iaround Kep before choosing this one. And we were very happy here. Still under construction when we stayed. Dining area and second floor were not open yet.
- Location (near Crab Market)
- Friendly, attentive and helpful English speaking staff
- Beautiful ocean view
- Fresh new sheets and bedding (very good quality too)
- Air con, cable TV, WiFi, and refrigerator all worked well
- Good price to value for Kep
-A little construction noise during the day and short temporary power interrupts (not a big deal)
-On-Premises restaurant was not open yet
-No sandy beaches near this part of Kep
We liked the location by the crab market and it was easily walk-able to restaurants and short sandy beaches. Central Kep (uninteresting) is farther to the east a few km.
