Going up the Bokor mountain requires serious bends, so if you are the type that easily gets motion sickness, you may like to take some medication before getting up. The trip was weird as I saw a mesh of everything that do not jell together....More
Nice drive through the park. New casino being refurbished looks out of place. Nice spots to stop at on the way up such as the Ya Mao monument and the Black Palace. A guided tour is ideal for explaining the history. Most are $12 for...More
Bokor park was one of my highlights when visiting Kampot. I would highly recommend hiring a scooter and driving up the mountain rather than doing a tour, this way you can take in the beautiful surroundings and there are some lovely photo opportunities on the...More
Lovely scenic drive up (we hired a bike) with plenty of places to stop and soak in the views! Doesn’t cost to get in either which is a bonus! The views from the top are amazing! Loved how you could see the clouds moving around...More
I had heard that a company was given a 99 year lease to develop the mountain with casinos and condos, but had no idea that the scale was so huge. It’s sad to see so much of this mountain torn up for development.
It's worth a drive as it has some great views of Kep, Kampot, and Sihanoukville but some developments are beginning to impact. There is quite a bit of deforestation in parts, building of houses, and the waterfall is dirty with gungee water. Go for a...More

Hi, there isn't a great deal to 'do' at Bokor, its mostly the scenery. There are a couple of walks to do, but its mostly the old casino and church to see. The kids will love exploring the old casino. You can walk safely right through the building and onto the top balconies. One of the best things about Bokor is it's about 10-12 degrees cooler up there (a very refreshing change to the constant heat of Cambodia).
Its about an hour drive from Krong Kampot up to Bokor, and its very windy road (just in case the kids get car sick). Also, Bokor is often in the clouds, so best to go on a cloudless day (otherwise there is no view of anything).
Hope this helps. Tim.
