My sisters and I travelled to Cambodia for six days. Our first stop was in Siem Reap. Next we went to Kampot and Kep. Third day was more like a day on the road. Arrived in Kampot at night. I do not recommend taking the Sorya bus as it takes almost 5 hours. Ekareach van takes 3 hours only (this is what we took on the way back to PNH).
Never forget to visit Kampot and Kep whenever you are in Cambodia but I dont recommend going on their rainy season coz it sure will rain all day. If you want something quiet, not crowded, lazy, then this is the place for you. Kampot is a small town where you can just walk or bike around. Kep is a 30-min ride from Kampot. Tourist tend to skip this province, DONT!
We went to their Secret Lake, Kampot Pepper Farm and Kep Crab Market. We were supposed to go to a cave but the rain didnt stop and wasnt able to tour more of Kep coz of the harsh wind and rain (sea side).
There are still many things you could do or places you could go in Kampot and Kep. Make sure to stay for a few days. One to two days is not enough.
The list below is a breakdown of our expenses in Kampot and Kep:
Cambodia Post VIP Van (REP to PNH) - $8 per person Sorya Bus (PNH to Kampot) - $12 per person Tuktuk (Kampot and Kep tour) - $20 Tuktuk - $2
Breakfast in Cafe Espresso - $16 Breakfast - $10 Lunch in Crab Market - $8 (1kilo of crabs), $0.50 (cooking of crabs), $1 (4 rice) Dinner in Happy Smile Pizza - $9.5 DInner - $13
