A Cambodian coastal town, Kep lies on a peninsula not far from Kampot and Sihanoukville. It was dubbed “Kep-sur-Mer” (Kep-by-the-Sea) by the French colonists and remained one of the most popular and prestigious beach town in Cambodia for a while. Atop its hill, one can still see the King Father’s mansions that never were inhabited. Kep is well-known for being a tranquil place. There is neither much to do nor to see but it is a great venue to take a break. At the weekend, Cambodians are down to taste fresh crab while expatriates want to enjoy a jaunt at the beach. About 4 kilometers away from the coast lies Koh Tonsay, “Rabbit Island,” that features a beautiful white sand beach along turquoise clear water. It is possible to go there for a day or to stay overnight in one of the basic guest houses. Besides, Kep Province houses Kep National Park established in 1993 and stretching over 50 square kilometers. There is an 8-kilometer circuit around the park that is navigable by foot or mountain bike. On the way, signs show walking paths leading into the interior of the park and to stunning vistas.
