What a place to get some great photos. when we arrived it was a clear,which was nice after we had heard so many horror stories. We ventured on past the casino to some other old buildings, and by the time we came back to the casino the cloud was starting to roll in which made for some great photos.

We went to Bokor with a motorbike from Kampot. It is a very nice and scenic route which will bring you within an hour to top. On the top there are some nice things to see and the views are great. We visited a nice, old Buddhist temple, and the weird Bokor Casino. You can also visit some falls on... More

We went on a day trip to the Bokor Hill national park and the Hill station was one of the many places we saw. It's big and it's a nice view. If you are going on a trip like this, it's something you will have to see!

The highlight of this attraction is the ride up bokor mountain. I did it on a motorbike (scooter is ok) and it was stunning. The old casino itself is average and has lost its major appeal due to renovations to maintain its structure. It was heavy cloud cover when I went so no view from the top, just an Erie... More

I saw this advertised as a 'ghost town', which is a bit of a stretch but there are still the evocative remains of enough buildings up there to make it worth the trip; a royal lodge, a police station, a church and, the star of the show , the shell of the old casino. The latter is very accessible and... More

We really enjoyed the drive up to Bokor Hill Station -- well, my partner enjoyed driving and I was happy on the back! But it didn't have the "wow" I expected when we got up to the casino. A friend told me it used to be better before they built the new resort and started refurbishments, so a shame we... More

I first visited Bokor in 2012 and it was interesting; however, I have just gone back in February 2015 and was very disapointed. The road up the mountain is very good and the scenery beautiful. But when getting to the top, the new casino/resort is all you can see and it is pretty ugly. More constructions are being built everywhere.... More

I can only imagine how majestic this place must have been a year or two ago. I'm not anti-development, but the landscape has been overrun by one of the ugliest casino and real-estate developments I've ever seen. What's more, some bright spark decided it would be a good idea to 'repair' Bokor Hill Station. The grand decay of the old... More

Having read previous reviews, I decided to hire a motor scooter and go up by myself. While the trip is a little lengthy, it is incredibly enjoyable. By going around 3pm, the roads were extremely quiet (which is good for less confident riders as there are lots of turns). I absolutely adored exploring the old casino and would highly recommend...
