    The views are wonderful. The history and houses of the royal family is interesting, including one for the King's mistress. The temple, old and new is the best part of the visit, along with the Christain church built a a century ago. Limited food so bring a picnic. Casino is not worth your time.

    Hoy hemos visitado la granja de pimienta y ha estado muy bien! Ofrecen visita guiada gratis y una cata con todos los tipos de pimienta que producen. Es como una pequeña comunidad familiar y el ambiente es genial. El guia nos explicó TODO super bien. Si tienes tiempo, recomiendo que vengas de visita!!

    We've been today visiting the pepper farm and it has been amazing! They offer a free tour around the farm and they let you try all the different types of pepper they produce. The farm it's kinda a family/community business and it makes it even more special. The environment is so nice. We truly recommend the visit!!!

    Bokor Mountain offers spectacular views of the Cambodian coastline and the Gulf of Thailand, and is well worth a visit. Unfortunately, widespread (and ugly) construction on the mountaintop is destroying at least a part of it.

    We hired a moped and rode to the temple fromKampot. The first part of the journey was easy, along a surfaced road. However, once we turned off (following a sign to Climbodia), the road became a bumpy, dusty track with no signs to direct us. What I would suggest is, when you come to a fork in the road, ask a local which way to go. It will save you getting lost like we did!
    Once we got close to the temple, we were approached by girls at a house/shop and told we had to park our bike there and pay them for ‘security’. That was not the case and we rode a bit further and left our bike by the ‘Police officer’ at the steps up to the temple. However, he charged us a dollar - entrance or parking?
    We were again approached by girls from the house offering to be our guide. The Police Officer said it would only cost us a dollar or two, so we hired one of the girls. We were glad that we did. As well as telling us about the temple, rock formations and local farmland, she was able to guide us out a different way - down through the cave complex! We were glad that we had sensible sandals on as it was quite difficult in places, but a great experience, unlike anything we had done before. We tipped the girl $5 at the end as we enjoyed the challenge.
    She gave us clear directions to the secret lake which we found without getting lost. We passed some interesting farmland on the way. Then we headed to La Plantation.

    We enjoyed our moped ride up and down the twisty, well maintained road.
    As you near the top however, you realise that this national park is being developed into some sort of resort for tourists and large areas of the natural environment are being destroyed. From the construction work and maps, it looks like checkpoints are being built with the intention of restricting access to the top of the mountain and the introduction of charges.
    Disappointed to find that the old Bokor Palace hotel has disappeared- it’s now been covered over by a fake looking modern version! There was one more old building close by but that looked like it was having a similar makeover. Hope the old Catholic Church will remain untouched.
    There was an even bigger hotel a short distance away from the Bokor Palace (it’s sister hotel?) and another almost finished hotel/apartment block next door.
    The whole area had an eerie feeling as the hotels were open but deserted.
    Great view of the gulf of Thailand from the very top - sheer drop down so be careful!
    Although I have given the place 3 stars, it was worth a visit to see how awful it is!

    Super friendly bar staff and lots of water toys. Lovely cold slushies and beers. Food menu could do with a bit of work however. Please bring back the Rusty Ribs !

    Nice place to see if you're in Kampot but have no time to visit the big farms further out of the city. The place is small but combines everything you need to know about the production of Kampot pepper

    An excellent excursion for a family, or alone, if you like ruins and empty houses. Nice to just walk around and look. Set to have scooter tuk tuk or similar with you

    It's a bit of a walk, a very short hike and stunning in that it is so far removed from what you'd expect on Bokor Mountain. Creeped me out in a good way.

    We took a tuktuk tour for 30usd for a whole day. we started in Kep and first stop was salt fields then cave then pepper farm then back to hotel.
    salt fields you can see on the way to Cambodia crossing border so you can skip it in case you will take tuk tuk through the beach road later to go to Cambodia.

    They bring salty water from sea and wait for couple of days to dry and then collect it. Nice to see the process once in a lifetime.

    We visited here in November, the waterfall was really fun and we got some great photos. We went in the evening by tuktuk and there was nobody else there when we got there which was nice. It's a bit of a drive out of Kampot and a bit dusty. You also have to walk up steps to get to it so I wouldnt go unless you are fit. We really enjoyed it, only watch out though is that the rocks are really slippy walking over to it, we fell a few times.

    You can do a three hour tour of the bigger plantations but to me that was too long. Out Tuk Tuk driver took us out to starling farm where we drove into the fields and saw how the pepper was grown and he explained how it was harvested and sorted. It was so interesting. After that he took us to the plantation shop where we were proved with more info and a tasting of the different types of pepper. We were able to purchase direct from the farm. This took 1 1/2 hours and we spent the rest of the time driving to the secret lake and local rice fields. Excellent.
