I first came to the sleepy city of Kampot in December 2015. My travel buddy Wonderboy and I were at the end of a two-week cross-country trip around Cambodia. Sadly, we had just a few days to spare. Hence there was only time for a few highlights, including a visit to Bokor National Park and a cruise down the pretty Kampot River.

I certainly never thought I’d go back to Kampot. But it’s funny how life turns out. In 2020 I returned to Cambodia, where my girlfriend Sladja and I spent seven eventful months in Siem Reap. Having written a detailed travel guide to the city and its surrounding sights, we decided a change of scenery was in order.

We wanted somewhere sleepy, a place where we could continue to write and teach at our own pace. Happily, Kampot definitely ticked both boxes.

Moreover, it has an interesting food and drink scene, along with plenty of fascinating, off-the-beaten-track sights.
