The main reason

The bedroom in a bungalow at Nataya Coral Bay Resort, 17kms west of Kampot
The real focus of my whistle-stop trip to Kampot and Kep at the weekend was to pay a visit to a bunch of hotels, old and new. For some it was quite literally poke my head in the door then out again, others it was a more formal inspection. The latter included new resorts like Nataya in Kampot and Eskepe in Kep. Here's some pictures to show you a few places I visited.
A view of the Nataya bungalows, which houses two separate rooms
The 1km beach at Nataya is a big attraction. I think it used to be the Queen's favourite beach in bygone times.
The Magic Sponge GH in Kampot. Clean and comfortable, housed in a former building used by Acleda Bank.
Simplicity reigns in one of the bedrooms at Knai Bang Chatt in Kep
A view of Eskepe, a gorgeous house for rent in Kep, which is still to be completed
The pool and grounds looking out to sea at Eskepe in Kep
The eco-friendly Vine Retreat outside Kep has rooms on 2 floors and a relaxation area above that
Work in progress; the new swimming pool at the popular Veranda Resort in Kep

Hi Andy, any idea about the latest on access to Bokor and construction of whatever it is that's going on up there?

Bokor Mountain is still closed to all road traffic. It was opened for a few days over the Water Festival period but then it was closed again. I think a couple of locals tour firms, like Sok Lim, offer treks up to the top but it takes a day to hike it and its not for the faint-hearted.
I think Bokor as we once knew it, is all but disappeared, or it will be once the project really gets underway (funds permitting).

Thanks. Gross, but thanks.

I'd be interested in the route to the top (and then putting it into Maybe the next time I come by.

Wikiloc tracks now show up on a Google Earth layer. Easiest way to add them is uploading from a GPS, but you can add them manually with a bit of effort.
