This quiet riverside town has bags of charm and is a lovely place to spend a couple of days. The town is a centre of salt and pepper production, and also is famous for its fish sauce and durians (look out for the durian roundabout, as bizarre a landmark as one is likely to see). Trips out of town can be made to explore the scenic coastline, or out into the countryside to trek through the rugged hills. Alternatively, take a relaxing stroll along the riverside, absorbing the faded glory of the French colonial architecture. Nearby streets are lined with small restaurants and bars - a cold beer with a river view is highly recommended. For longer stays, there are a number of fine resorts with numerous facilities just outside of town. For those just passing through, we definitely recommend a stay in one of Kampot's numerous small guesthouses, many of which have a distinctly colonial feel.
