Kampot is a small seaside venue in Cambodia, and also the capital city of Kampot Province. The Kampot River that goes across confers certain tranquility to the city. There is not much to do in Kampot; it is more about contemplating landscapes and architecture. Indeed, it used to be a trading center and Cambodia’s primary port, and many French colonists lived there. Since the 1950s, Sihanoukville has taken over the trading activities but the architecture in Kampot has remained mostly the same. Besides, Kampot lies not far from Bokor National Park that used to house Bokor Mountain hill station, originally a small resort town. The place has since been abandoned but the casino and the church that it used to feature are still there – in poor condition, though. A new casino may currently be under development on the mountain. Eventually, Kampot is best known for its pepper and pepper farms can be visited.
