Kep is a small resort town situated on a Gulf of Thailand in the southern part of Cambodia. The highlights here are the seafood kitchen with pepper crabs as the main dish and nearby tropical islands. However, we also found it to be charming and peaceful getaway from busy South East Asia rhythm. It was founded as a seaside retreat back in 1908 for French colonists who built still standing and crumbling villas here.
The city does not have a center. However, it attracts many tourists who are hungry for some fresh and tasty seafood, a magnificent sunset on a Gulf of Thailand, relaxing stroll around a promenade near the coast or nearby Kep National Park.
Kep has this strange vibe around the whole city, once there, we could feel very pleasant and relaxing.
Best of luck planning your holidays in Cambodia!
