Day 1 – Phnom Penh to Kampot
We will take you in the morning at your hotel and we will take the public bus from Phnom Penh to Kampot. The journey will take about two hours through the countryside. After arriving, we will relax at Epic Arts Café. This Café belongs to the NGO Epic Arts which trains disabled people to do arts performance in order to allow them to regain some self-confidence and respect.
Later in the afternoon, we will take a boat on the Prek Kampong Bay River, which runs along the city for a sunset river cruise. Passing through a Cham village, this journey will lead us to the rapids at Tekchhou, a pleasant place very popular with the locals on weekends. We will return to Kampot for dinner.
Overnight in Kampot. Accomodation at Kampot Riverview Guest House or similar.
Day 2 - Kampot : Bokor Hill Station - (B / L)
After breakfast we will drive to Bokor Hill Station. This site is located on a 1000 meters high plateau of steaming jungle, shy wildlife and abandoned buildings. Built by the French as a casino resort in the 1920s (with the casino, a hotel, a post-office and a church), it enjoyed a new boom with the building of a royal residence by King Sihanouk in 1959 before being abandoned to the elements in 1970. Off-limits until recent years, the building fell apart. The specific climate of the site, often shrouded in fog and clouds, completes the mysterious atmosphere of this ghost-town. In addition, the view of the coast from the top is really spectacular. We will spend a full day in this eccentric and surprising site with a picnic lunch near the Popokvil waterfalls. We will drive back to Kampot in the evening where we will have dinner. After a day on the bumpy roads of Bokor, you will be perhaps tempted by a shiatsu-style massage or a foot massage at “Seeing Hands 5 Massage” or “Kampot Massage by the Blind”, two places offering massages by seeing-impaired masseurs and masseuses.
Overnight in Kampot. Accommodation at Kampot Riverview Guest House or similar.
