Old Catholic Church, Kampot

(2.5/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
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.
