Kampot is a cute old river town about two hour drive from Sihanoukville where we spent first week in our Cambodia trip. It has a very strong European touch in some of the buildings around the town and along the river from French colonial era. Some of them have been restored and redecorated into restaurants and accommodation without changing their basic French market shapes. The actual centre of the town is the funny fruit ball and giant durian statue round about.
There are basically two types of touristy ‘crowd’ in Kampot, ones in the town where all the old buildings have been transformed to accommodation and restaurants and those that are actually on the Kampot river banks.
