The first impression of tourists visiting this charming town will be the range of ancient French style architectures in line with the surroundings – the surpassing panorama landscape of oceans, mountains and caves. This setting gives Kampot a peaceful and unhurried atmosphere. Embraced by the Teuk Chhou River, it makes the ideal based in which to relax after a long way wandering, and to prepare for an adventure to explore the local caves and tackle the challenge: Bokor National Park.

The national park still keeps its wild appearance with a refreshingly cool climate and abundant biodiversity. The entry is from 6 a.m. to noon but tourists can spend all day long discovering it. You can get here by car, but with quite a slow speed because of the cliff terrain.

Tourists will be surprised, and maybe, a little freaked out with the primitive scene of the Bokor Hill. It used to be a French resort, but after twice abandoned, it has a genuine ghost-town feel with wildflowers, howling winds and deserted buildings shrouded in mist.

You must do about three hours trekking from the hill station to reach the Popokvil Falls – blurred in fog – and take a look at these wonderful streams. The best time to visit it is in the wet season. It will be a fine place to bathe in a sunny day, and don’t forget to swim in the upper falls.
