    The City


    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 the Kampot durian statue, the roundabout in the center of town.

    Kampot is a city in southern Cambodia and the capital of Kampot Province.

    It is situated at the Praek Tuek Chhu river southeast of the Elephant Mountains / Preah Monivong Bokor National Park and around 5 km (3 mi) from the Gulf of Thailand.

    Kampot was the capital of the Circonscription Residentielle 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.
