Kep is a quiet town, located on hills overlooking the beaches and islands. There are not much to do here, however the scenery is fantastic. Largely unpopulated, Kep was Cambodia’s original seaside resort town.
Kep is a small seaside town, and similar to Vietnam’s beach, it’s just offshore. It’s a half hour drive from Kampot, Cambodia and the Vietnam border, and 2 hours from SihanoukVille and Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
Bungalows, villas, guesthouses and hotels are located just on the hillside and the beaches. There’s not a whole-day activity in Kep. The town is mostly a place for relaxation, enjoying fresh seafood, going for walks, trekking through the hills, boating, bicycling, and mountain biking, and a stopover on the way to or from Vietnam.
