After just a few nights in Phnom Penh, Matt and I took the bus to Kampot. Sitting in the back of a small mini-bus, cramped for a few hours, isn’t the best so I was happy the moment we arrived at the hostel. There was that much to do in Kampot but we managed to have a fun time anyway.
Bokur National Park
I can’t believe how many scooter rides I’ve made in Asia, but it’s so much fun! It’s a great, maybe even the best, way to explore a place in an easy way. This time we drove our scooters up a hill in the Bokor National Park. There are a lot of things to see here and the roads were great for cruising around. Our first stop was at this abandoned church, close to the hill of the park that offered an amazing view of Kampot. We wandered around a bit and took some nice photos. We then drove to an abandoned, old casino. Nothing special, but again a great view of Kampot. Our last stop in the park was a waterfall. Not a big one like I’ve seen in Bali or Iceland, but again nice to just wander around.
After a few nights we switched hostels because we really want to experience Arcadia, a cool hostel that’s also a water park! They have a slide, zip line and other crazy things to play with and have fun! Our time in Kampot was nice, even though we didn’t really expect that much. Traveling without any expectations is a tip for everyone that’s backpacking!
