Holidays to the Cambodian Coast

After experiencing bustling Phnom Penh and the famous temples of Angkor, you might be ready for the ‘rest and relaxation’ element of your trip. Whilst the beaches around Kep and Kampot may not have the white sands found on some of the islands in neighbouring Thailand, the coastline in Cambodia is beautiful in its own right and is far less crowded – making it suitable for authenticity seekers and those looking for a bit of peace and quiet. The Kep/Kampot area is where you will find the highest standard of boutique accommodation on Cambodia’s coastline.

Kep is famous for the quality of its seafood. Strolling the crab market and enjoying a cold drink with a meal fresh off the boat is an experience in itself and a must-do for all seafood lovers. We’re big fans of the simple local recipe - freshly caught crab, chilli and cracked Kampot Pepper – delicious! 

If you’re interested in Cambodia’s colonial history or just want to experience a bit of local life in the region, we recommend a visit to picturesque Kampot. It’s home to some of the most complete colonial architecture in all of Cambodia, not to mention lots of lovely restaurants and bars. A couple of hours further west you arrive at the islands of Koh Rong and Koh Rong Samleom. This is the spot in Cambodia for those who want that picture postcard white sand and crystal-clear ocean. While away your days reading a good book, taking boat trips or snorkelling coral reefs. Whilst the range of accommodation here is a little more limited, we’ve sourced a couple of beachfront hotels we know you’ll love.

Cambodia is such a diverse an interesting country, with beautiful nature and some of the world’s most incredible temples. The bike ride I embarked on through the ancient city of Angkor is definitely one of my most treasured memories.
