  • Just a river with rocks. Splish. Splash. Splush. Sit and watch locals try to swim. $2 to enter the area. I can make better rapids in the shower. Only $1 if you want to see....
  • 2 USD access road fee. Worthless. Don't expect to go to the dam. The Chinese administration says NO. It's not very Communist. They are not anymore anyway...
  • Good spot to chill, hang out, & enjoy a swim. Just be careful, the current is stronger & faster than you think. We were lucky enough to enjoy the company of some locals who not only shared their bumpin tunes & dance moves with us, but also some crabs & beer.
  • Rapids no longer exist due to the dam but you can chill out by the river and eat some decent street food and fruit. A dubious policeman collects a 'toll' on the way in which is a shame. The amount of the toll seems to be fairly arbitrary, don't ask for a receipt.
  • Lovely view of nature, but nothing rapid about it due to the dam.

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.
