Kampot, our favorite small town

Kampot, our favorite small town

This laid back small town is one of our favorites. It has a special charm and grows on you more each day. We’ve found the Cambodia people to be amazing friendly towards us and this town is no different.  The locals including the expats are friendly and welcoming. The downtown section that is frequented by travelers is relatively small but has everything you need. Inexpensive places to stay […]
