Kep and Kampot are getting more press

Jump to last reply

Here's a link to an interesting article in the New York Times about Kep and the surrounding areas. I loved spending 5 days in Kampot and Kep in December--as the article mentions, the area is changing, with new construction (for example, a short portion of multi-lane highway has opened one one side of Kep, and the fast road to Bokor National Park has opened) and some renovated buildings. The signs of destruction under the Khmer Rouge are fading. It's a magical place--go see it now before it changes too much! (And you don't have to spend $200 a night--there are plenty of nice accommodations for around $50).
