Situated in the southwest of Cambodia and surrounded by Kampot Province and the sea, Kep is the smallest province of Cambodia. Famous and well known during the French protectorate, “Kep sur Mer” was the most popular beach town in Cambodia at that time.
Unfortunately the Khmer rouge period destroyed many of the prestigious colonial villas. However, one can still witness some of the town’s former splendor, its architecture and charm. Kep also has some remarkable natural benefits… Kep National Park, Rabbit Island and its secluded beaches, rice and salt fields as well as a coastline rich in fish and crabs. By the way, the best places to savor the various seafood delights and the excellent crab with Kampot pepper are the restaurants located close to the crab market!
