Add a Point to the Map

Kep is a seaside resort area in Cambodia and includes the small town of the same name which is the capital of Kep Province.

Cambodia's top seaside destination until eclipsed in the 1960s by Sihanoukville (and, soon after, decades of civil war), today's Kep is slowly being rediscovered by travellers.

The town is full of ruined shells of old villas, destroyed in the Khmer Rouge days and during the subsequent Civil War.

Today's Kep has recently become established as a Khmer holiday spot and is slowly being rediscovered by travelers. An unfortunate attitude of "milk the foreigner" pervades the local businesses, unlike in nearby Kampot, which makes decent bargaining a necessity.
