When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Of all the places I’ve visited in Cambodia, this is probably where I learned the most and really found inspiration in how they run their development venture. I refer to this latter point because this is a place where they go out of their way to treat their workers with respect, dignity, and with a family like sensibility. Though they don’t overemphasize it, their workers are housed in decent living quarters on-site at no cost.

    While I’d been to other spice farms around the world, the way this place is structured is quite different. Our guide, Leap (“Lee-epp”) took the time to describe in detail how and why each step of the process works. During the tasting session, she gave incredibly detailed descriptions of how each spice mix and sauce can be paired with variety of dishes. By that point, everyone must’ve been incredibly hungry because her she was quite vivid. But no worry, the restaurant didn’t disappoint. With a simple menu of traditional Khmer specialties, they really know how to season food in a way that you won’t find at Kampot restaurants.

    Even though I actually landed up buying quite a few spices, if the packaging was more durable I would have purchased even more since they have numerous unique products that you won’t find anywhere else in the country. Little vacuum packed bags that can’t be closed back up doesn’t really make sense for delicate spices. Some simple glass jars with solid tops would make a world of difference!

    My only regret was taking a tuktuk there. Because the road is being paved, there was a huge dust bowl throughout. Though the driver gave me a mask, I could feel the grit on my hair and face by the end of the trip. Probably would’ve been better to simply rent a car for the day, however the kind lady at the shop in town reassured me that I tuktuk would be fine.

    A must do if you’re in Kampot. A warm and friendly atmosphere with a free tour and pepper tasting afterwards. Jason our guide was particularly fun.

    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.

    The day we visited the fog was very thick so unfortunately we didn’t get to enjoy the views. The wat itself is very old and the outside is less ornate then most others we have seen. The inside was small but very nice. If you are coming to Bokor Park I would recommend a visit

    A sympathic place that you can visit with the help of a tourist guide that would show you the place for a minimum of 5$.
    I would recommend you to be a bit in shape as it requires some climbing and it can be a bit slippery.
    You can count around 20 to 30mn to go through the cave

    We had a tuktuk ride here today and it definitely worth the bumpy and dusty ride. Apart from the excellent (free) tour and tasting, I admire the owners approach to integrating and helping the local (very poor) community. You learn everything you always wanted to know about the various varieties of pepper and then taste several with very knowledgeable guides. Of course you can purchase everything but you don’t have to. We bought all our back home gifts here knowing that some of the money helps the local people

    Interesting place to visit as this joint obviously has a significant history and a lot of development that have just been walked away from and left abandoned. We did this via Motor Scooter, in my view the best way. We hired our 125cc scooter from Tree Travel Tours in the middle of Kampot. It cost us $5 US for the bike and a total of $2.50 US in fuel. The ride is 42kms from town, the first 10kms on the main road and then you enter the National Park for free and wind your way up through the monkeys and some very nice scenery. You have to leave your passport as a deposit for the bike but I had no issues whatsoever, nice family business and a very helpful proprietor. The bike was in good shape. I don’t know about jumping on tourist buses, that might not be your best day out, but certainly an option and glad we did it by scooter. We felt very safe.

    I did give this a 4 star as a photographer and I found the whole area very interesting. But I am also appalled. Described as a national park the upper areas have been completely wrecked by greed selling out to the Chinese who have abandoned scores of half built concrete bunkers. I scratched my head in disgust. I can see the plan was to build some kind of thriving city in the clouds for rich Chinese, but really who would actually wanted to live there. Most of the upper area is dilapidated and run down, a complete mess, I did visit the old casino which has had some half hearted attempt to revamp into a hotel, and didnt bother going to look at the new casino. Extensive pagoda area and the views are stunning, although it was cloudy!

    Amazing day out. Joined in a boat bbq which was so fun. The volunteers were so nice! They have tubes for chilling on the river, the famous death slide, a blob, platforms and a swing!

    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
