Old Catholic Church, Kampot

2.4
#3 of 7 in Sightseeing in Kampot
Church Tourist Spot
Take the long and winding road up to Old Catholic Church, a stone-clad, lonesome structure nestled in rough nature at the top of Bokor Mountain. Due to changing air temperature at this high spot, clouds and fog often settle giving the church an eerie atmosphere. A peek inside the dark, wet structure won't offer much- the building is abandoned and has no furniture or even windows. Climb the hill behind the building for a better view of the valley. Despite what the weather might be doing at the bottom of the mountain, consider bringing warm clothes or a raincoat for your ascent-- you'll find the weather is often colder at the top. Our Kampot itinerary maker makes visiting Old Catholic Church and other Kampot attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • It's interesting to see a church in Cambodia on such a remote place but there's nothing to do in and around the church. It's been totally stripped so don't come here just for this church.  more »
  • Interesting church on the top of the hill even no more activities inside. But still peaceful around the area.  more »
  • It is not a very big church but it is a bit cool If you follow the little road beside the church which goes up the hill, you can get an amazing view over the mountains and the forest ;)  more »

Where to stay in Kampot

The conveniently named Guesthouse Street provides a good place for budget-conscious travelers to look in Kampot. Located to the south of a main roundabout, the road offers plenty of guesthouses with both private and shared rooms; these establishments cater to international travelers, many with welcoming cafes just next door. Following the river north and south of the main town leads to other accommodations, including resorts of luxury private bungalows, and some eco-friendly lodges with well-maintained grounds and particularly friendly staff.
