Monuments and attractions to see in Kampot:

The main attraction in Kampot province has always been the Bokor National Park and the French abandoned casino. A ghostly building in an extraordinary setting. But a gigantic new casino project is gradually destroying all that made the charm of the place. There is still the views of the surroundings but it is a great pitty. The region also has some interesting caves temples, Koh Tonsay island which is often proposed by travel agencies. But the town of Kampot itself apart from its riverfront does not offer attractions to visit. This is the atmosphere of the city that makes you love the place and stay for a few days.

Bokor National Park

Bokor National Park

The place has lost its appeal since the project of a luxury resort built in Bokor Mountain but it can still be worth getting up there for the views that we have from the top of the mountain. ( details... )

  • Koh Tonsay , small friendly island. The local agencies offer boat trips to get there.

  • Cave temples , quite numerous in the region. Again local agencies located near the river front of Kampot River will offer you a trips to discover them.
