Fishing boats off the coast of Rabbit Island in Kep, Cambodia


Savour Cambodia's best seafood in a relaxing vibe

In contrast to the popular and bustling beachfronts in Sihanoukville, Kep enjoys the vibe of a smaller, more low-key beach town. A former seaside retreat for the French and Cambodian elite in the 1960’s, Kep nowadays is best loved for its cosy oceanfront seafood shacks.

Nearby attractions include Rabbit Island with its pristine beaches, the quaint French colonial-style town of Kampot, and Bokor Hill Station, a former retreat for French officials and foreign visitors.
