Discover Kampot and Kep

- A Secret Retreats journey -
4 days / 3 nights
from 510 USD /person



This journey has been personally designed by Kim Nou has been in the travel business for over 25 years, is in love with his country and passionate about sharing his deep knowledge of Khmer culture and unique places with guests and give them memorable experience to bring back home.

All our itineraries have generally been constructed on the basis of the rooms that have the most charm or best view, and not necessarily the first prices, nor the most expensive suites.
We can of course adjust according to your request.

Highlights of the Journey:

  • The colonial town of Kampot
  • Kampot Pepper Plantation
  • Kep seaside

In this itinerary, we depart from Phnom Penh to the Southeastern Coast of Cambodia: Kampot and Kep, which are only 25 kilometres apart. The first one is famous for its Pepper, the second one for its Crab. Therefore the combination of both is also the guarantee for great meals! Kampot is a sleepy riverside town, with a relaxed atmosphere and a rich French colonial architecture giving a lot of charm to the town. Between Kampot and Kep, you will visit some pepper plantation. Kep was founded as a seaside retreat by the French in early 20th century, to search for sea breeze during the hot season, with seafood, sunsets and hikes in butterfly-filled Kep National Park as the main attractions. This short itinerary is a good extension to other excursions across Cambodia.
