What travelers are saying
- It was very nice to interact with the local staff and farmers at the plantation, Our guide was very knowledgeable and we could do a free pepper tasting while he was explaining all the difference between the peppers. I may not remember everything he said but I remember for sure the pepper was excellent !Written August 29, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- The views are wonderful. The history and houses of the royal family is interesting, including one for the King's mistress. The temple, old and new is the best part of the visit, along with the Christain church built a a century ago. Limited food so bring a picnic. Casino is not worth your time.Written February 11, 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- A great day out and the best lunch I have had in cambodia. The tour is free and the excellent english language skills of the guide make it informative and interactive. It costs US$15 for the return trip in a TukTuk 1hr each way (they look after the driver with lunch etc). Alternatively you can hire a motorcycle for $5 and drive yourself which would be faster and less bumpy. They also have a shop in Kampot and are very helpful in product selection, what you can take to your country etc.Written August 18, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Bokor Mountain offers spectacular views of the Cambodian coastline and the Gulf of Thailand, and is well worth a visit. Unfortunately, widespread (and ugly) construction on the mountaintop is destroying at least a part of it.Written December 26, 2021
- We hired a moped and rode to the temple fromKampot. The first part of the journey was easy, along a surfaced road. However, once we turned off (following a sign to Climbodia), the road became a bumpy, dusty track with no signs to direct us. What I would suggest is, when you come to a fork in the road, ask a local which way to go. It will save you getting lost like we did!
Once we got close to the temple, we were approached by girls at a house/shop and told we had to park our bike there and pay them for ‘security’. That was not the case and we rode a bit further and left our bike by the ‘Police officer’ at the steps up to the temple. However, he charged us a dollar - entrance or parking?
We were again approached by girls from the house offering to be our guide. The Police Officer said it would only cost us a dollar or two, so we hired one of the girls. We were glad that we did. As well as telling us about the temple, rock formations and local farmland, she was able to guide us out a different way - down through the cave complex! We were glad that we had sensible sandals on as it was quite difficult in places, but a great experience, unlike anything we had done before. We tipped the girl $5 at the end as we enjoyed the challenge.
She gave us clear directions to the secret lake which we found without getting lost. We passed some interesting farmland on the way. Then we headed to La Plantation.Written February 27, 2020
- Very nice views from the top, you can see all the way to Sihanoukville and Phu Quoc island. It is fresh so it is good to take a jacket with you. There are quite a lot of buildings being built but still a lot of natural areas. We enjoyed the Popokvil waterfall the most !!Written August 29, 2022
- Super friendly bar staff and lots of water toys. Lovely cold slushies and beers. Food menu could do with a bit of work however. Please bring back the Rusty Ribs !Written May 24, 2020
- Nice place to see if you're in Kampot but have no time to visit the big farms further out of the city. The place is small but combines everything you need to know about the production of Kampot pepperWritten February 18, 2020
- An excellent excursion for a family, or alone, if you like ruins and empty houses. Nice to just walk around and look. Set to have scooter tuk tuk or similar with youWritten April 21, 2020
- It's a bit of a walk, a very short hike and stunning in that it is so far removed from what you'd expect on Bokor Mountain. Creeped me out in a good way.Written October 18, 2020
- it must look nice in the rainy season but unfortunately no waterfall for us during dry season.... surroundings are nice thoughWritten February 25, 2020
- I really enjoyed this natural sanctuary for Cranes. The guide Buna is very knowledgeable and friendly. They have kept the place natural and cleanWritten February 22, 2022
- We took a tuktuk tour for 30usd for a whole day. we started in Kep and first stop was salt fields then cave then pepper farm then back to hotel.
salt fields you can see on the way to Cambodia crossing border so you can skip it in case you will take tuk tuk through the beach road later to go to Cambodia.
They bring salty water from sea and wait for couple of days to dry and then collect it. Nice to see the process once in a lifetime.Written February 24, 2020
- nice cool soothing waterfall. great relief after a long hot walk up to the falls. well worth the trip.Written July 28, 2022
- You can do a three hour tour of the bigger plantations but to me that was too long. Out Tuk Tuk driver took us out to starling farm where we drove into the fields and saw how the pepper was grown and he explained how it was harvested and sorted. It was so interesting. After that he took us to the plantation shop where we were proved with more info and a tasting of the different types of pepper. We were able to purchase direct from the farm. This took 1 1/2 hours and we spent the rest of the time driving to the secret lake and local rice fields. Excellent.Written October 23, 2018
