Kampot, the third largest coastal province in Cambodia and located 148 km in the south-west of Phnom Penh, shares a border with Vietnam to the east and extends into the Gulf of Thailand to the south. The province can be reached by a personal car, taxi, or bus from Phnom Penh through the National Road #3 or through the National Road #31 past Kep province. Travel from Kampot province to Preah Sihanouk Province, or vice versa, is also available through the National Road #3 connecting the National Road #4 at Veal Renh.
Kampot is famous for sweet-flavored Durians, global-trademark-registered and exported pepper, and coconuts, which tons of the latter supplies the local market all year round. The province is also known for its elegant colonial architecture, spectacular natural attractions, and bucolic charm. For the past few years, more tourist attractions have been renovated, discovered, and created in the province, which has made Kampot host an increasing number of visitors – both national and international.
