The abandoned buildings were partly renovated when we visited - So perhaps had lost previous interest.. The whole resort area is totally bizarre - a casino complex, looking very sad and tired - almost like a ghost complex. I think the views might have been good but unfortunately for us it was a cloudy day so we didn't see anything.

When we were there, we were the only people there - and it was amazing. It was like walking in the past. From the rooftop you can enjoy the fantastic view over the bay. It is just spectacular. I would recommend you to rent a motorbike and drive around in the Bokor National park. It is cool and you can... More

The hill station building looks like it's in the process of being renovated but it's still cool to see. Regardless of whether you go by tour or by yourself, there are some other old buildings to see - the kings palace & the old church building are well worth a visit.

Nice scenery, long way up to top, cannot walk there, need motorbike or join a tour for about 10 dollars, better with a guide to tell you about the history of the station and some of the fighting there. Tours take you to waterfall, but no water in dry season, just a trickle, so bit of a non- event and... More

Seems to me the experience is very different. If you go on a tour, I imagine it would be average. However, rent a scooter for $6 and ride up there and it's an amazing experience. Has the national park being ruined by the awful casino? yes!! However, still a great journey and a lovely ride with spectacular views.

Going to Bokor hill is just a ride of pleasure for anyone on a moto! It is most definitely the best road in Cambodia if not in all south east asia: going up the mountain through the jungle is just beautiful ad refreshing. On the top, don't miss the old French casino and the waterfall.... and drop by the new... More

My husband and I spent two nights in Kampot and made the "Bokor Hill" tour a priority. Big mistake. Was not worth the visit - right from the start was a terrible experience! Our tour bus picked us up and then went to get an oil change so we got to stand out on the side of the road for... More

The plateau is well served by a very good road one rarely sees in the area. The jungle, forsaken palace and church are magnificent. For gambler, the casino, the central attraction of the site is a must. In the morning, the show of clouds crossing the lobby door of the hotel is just amazing. Don't know whether it is possible...

Check the panoramic views behind the old Casino building. Also from the rooftop! It's best at sunset

We were unsure about doing this as some seem to like it and others don't think its worth it. We loved the journey up there through the hills, and the views are wonderful. The abandoned buildings are fairly interesting (we actually found the big Hotel had a big student party going, so ghost building it was not) but we just... More
