Kampot Cambodia

Kampot is a quiet, peaceful place that is quickly gaining a reputation as Cambodia’s number one tourist chill out.

Most Western tourists and visitors probably have no idea that Kampot is also practically synonymous with durian. That might explain the prominent setting of Kampot’s durian statue, the roundabout in the center of town.

Kampot was the capital of the Circonscription Résidentielle de Kampot under French rule and Cambodia’s (Kingdom of Wonder) most important sea port after the loss of the Mekong Delta and before the establishment of Sihanoukville.

Its center is unlike most Cambodian provincial capitals composed of 19th-century French colonial architecture. The region and town are well known for the high quality pepper, which is being exported worldwide. It is also known for its Kampot fish sauce and durian. (source wikipedia)

The best time to see the pond is early morning. The flowers bloom every morning and then close when the day starts.

Lotus is also widely used in the cuisine of the region. The big leaves are used to wrap food for steaming, while the stems, seed pods and seeds are all eaten.
