Despite the rain and fog, this abandoned casino was jaw dropping. It was like walking through a horror movie. Not only is it eerily beautiful by itself, the history behind it makes it all the more fascinating.

Our guide was fully informed of the sometimes chilling history of the place. Good place to escape the heat of Cambodia. It was the only place we ever used a cardigan on a day which felt like a misty day in the English Pennines.

It's about a 40 km, on a very good and windy road. The new resort is so strange and bizarre it's defiantly worth a stop. A good idea around Kampot us to rent a motorbike,if you have some experience I recommend the honda XR 250, they are about 15$ a day. There are a lot of nice dirt roads around... More

It was good to see the view from the top of the mountain although when it clouded over there was nothing to see. It's quite interesting and eerie to see the old buildings but the new development is fast destroying the natural landscape. The casino was good to explore whilst trying to imagine what it would have been like. The... More

We rented motorbikes and rode up to the hill station. The ride was very enjoyable, and the views along the way were amazing. We were there during low season so the fog was quite thick at the top and that was a bit disappointing in terms of seeing the abandoned buildings at the top, but it was still worth the... More

Yes, it's a shame this piece of history/nature is in hands/lease of foreign companies. Yes, the casino used to look a bit more rough. But there is still plenty of beauty left, you just need to WANT to see it. - First, the road up the mountain is absolutely gorgeous (and even more so in the evening when coming down).... More

We hired scooters and drove up to Bokor Hill Station. We had lunch at the casino and explored the area. The waterfall was nice and you could climb down to the bottom. The old Bokor Station had a ghost town. It was a bit eery. But nice trip up on the bikes.

Cool place to check out. Not much to see except the creepy abandoned casino and a stunning view, but its worth it for that. Rent some motor bikes and head up the hill to check it out. Even creepier is the brand new (but totally empty) billion dollar new casino development next door. It's like being in The Shining! A... More

This is done as part of the one day tour from Kampot. Lots of derelict buildings at the top of a nice bit of road !! Would be nice to do the drive in a nice car but ths rest is a bit average, the view is great if the weather is good.
