You will not miss this BIG Crab statue. Read from the plaque that it was donated by Cambodia senior minister. Good for photo taking. Thats about it.

Crab is smaller than I was expecting, but it is quite funny, and you can make nice sunset photos with it.

When there are the most beautiful stone statues around - why the plastic crab? Lovely area and great beach which is cleaned up each night - lots of accommodation available

Great photo opportunity. Don't think you will see a bigger crab than this one anywhere lol. I was left perplexed by its location though.

This kind of structure is reminiscent of garish welcome signs at Butlins holiday camps or Coney Island back in the fifties. Nothing good to say about it. It degrades this pleasant, largely unspoilt resort town. Pull it down.

We loved the statue, just so different from the norm. Setting is wonderful on a stretch of seaside promenade that could be Nice or St Tropez....well nearly.

It's just a not very interesting or particularly well designed giant crab perched above the water. It's about as appealing as a road sign. I've given it 3 stars because I often cycle to Kep from Kampot and this is the spot I choose to stop and spend some time enjoying the scenery. You can sit on the wall here... More

Past this while walking around one afternoon had to take a photograph. Not much at this end of town but if walking away from kep beach about another 100 metres there are many places with hammocks and you can sit and chill with a beer with some lovely views of the islands.

Keep is a sleepy local place so if you ant to know a bit more about locals this is the place ..i loved it for the peace and tranquility, if you looking for a place to party drink this is not the place for you and e prepared most restaurants and coffee shops cost the same price as Europe so...

How this is rated number 5 of things to do in Kep is slightly confusing!! It is basically a statue of a crab in the sea which is easily seen from the car as you drive by...I wouldn't say it warrants a special visit.
