The Bokor Hill Station is an old hotel/casino built in 1925 located in Phnom Bokor National Park (See my other review on the weird experience of this national park and more info on how to get there). The history of this site is really interesting but the building itself is somewhat less fascinating. But then again, nothing in Kampot is... More

If time permits while in Cambodia - Spend at least 2 days at this location ... it feels like one in the clouds

I was really exited about could see the cool building, but when I get there it already became a huge conquer cover grey thing, very sad they rebuilding turn out like this. When the fog comes, it still looks mystery and spooky. Good for photo.

Me and some others from my hostel hired mopeds (I've very limited experience) and cruised up the winding roads to the top. Its the best way as far as I can tell as you set your own pace and stop where you want. Plus for the $6 rental and 2-3 you'll spend on fuel its likely significantly the cheapest way... More

The drive up the mountains had some great views and a real mix of flora and fauna, the road is fairly new aswell so a smooth drive. Brilliant views down on the jungle watching the clouds rolling in below. The hill station itself was a really interesting experience, some great architecture and the buildings fairly intact but with a eerie... More

Its fun for taking pictures, it's got a dark history though related to the khmer rouge that is not talked about at the site- there is no interpretation at all. The developments growing up around it definitely take away from the once-beautiful landscape of Bokor mountain.

Rented a moto and rode up the mountain, stopping on the way at houses abandoned by the French colonialists, a waterfall, abandoned church and casino. The drive is really nice, but make sure you fill your tank to the max. I ran out of gas at the top and managed to find a family willing to sell me some for... More

All 10 of our trip agreed this was the most boring excursion of our visit in Cambodia, followed later by a more boring three hour river trip looking for non existant fireflies and non existant sunset! Even the beer afterwards was boring!

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
