A seaside vacation destination in Cambodia’s Kep Province, this little resort town has finally been bouncing back from many years of the country’s turbulent history to what is now a steadily growing popular destination for beach vacationers from not only the surrounding cities but from outside the country as well.
Getting into Kep is relatively easy as it’s within a few hours by car, bus, or minibus from bigger cities such as Phnom Penh and Sihanoukville. Once in Kep, transportation within the town is best done by walking, tuk-tuks, or motorcycles.
Nature enthusiasts are certain to enjoy a trip to Kep National Park
, which features some comfortable hiking trails with beautiful views of the jungle, sea, and the beautiful Bokor Mountain in the distance. After a few hours of hiking through the trail, spend an afternoon enjoying the stunning views while enjoying a snack.
Kep is famous for its beautiful beaches, and the beach on the popular Koh Tunsay
, which is more commonly known as Rabbit Island. The island is home to perhaps the most beautiful beach in Kep, and a night swim at this beach is likely going to be a magical experience with the bioluminescent algae creating a beautiful lightshow.
