Kampot Overview

Kampot is a small town in south-east Cambodia and capital of the province with same name. It is a gateway to Bokor National Park. Kampot’s main attraction is its relaxing riverside setting. Most foreigner oriented tourist businesses are scattered along the riverside promenade or are within one or two blocks of it.
The riverside’s main reference points are the old bridge, a mongrel of various styles and temporary parts thrown together after its breaching in the Khmer Rouge days, and the French-built market building (which is currently being restored).
