The allure of the freshest crab sampled on a tropical beach
Kep was once a beachside playground for Cambodia’s upper echelons and it certainly hasn’t lost any of its luxe vibe. Your Kep tour will take you to chic boutique resorts and tropical beaches with a very relaxed ambience, and it will lead you to unrivalled seafood that is served mouth-wateringly fresh.
This is the perfect place to unwind on your Cambodian holiday. There are some characterful resorts that are situated next to crumbling mansions of yesteryear that add to the romantic charm to the resort.
With its tranquil atmosphere and palm-fringed beaches it is the perfect setting to enjoy the fabulous seafood restaurants, and you can see the fishermen bring in baskets of crabs by the boatload to be sold at the picturesque markets and elegant waterfront restaurants that line the shore.
If it all seems too relaxing why not walk along the well-signposted jungle tracks of the Kep National Park, or take a boat trip out to Koh Thonsáy, a small island dotted with picturesque bamboo shacks.
But, then again, you probably won’t want to leave your spot on the sand.
