Kep Crab Market, Kep

(3.8/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
At Kep Crab Market, nestled right up against the seashore, the fishermen come to sell fresh crabs caught using wooden traps. Most of the action takes place on the beach overlooking the ocean full of small boats, while small improvised shacks in the background sell local meals, vegetables, fruits, and spices. Adjacent to the market, find an array of wooden restaurants on stilts. Enjoy fresh seafood, including snapper, tuna, river fish, calamari, and the famous blue pepper crab. As well as local specialties, many of the restaurants also serve international cuisine. Finish off the day with a glass of wine and a view of the sun setting over the endless horizon. Plan your visit to Kep Crab Market and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Kep vacation builder.

  • For those who are addicted to durians, you must try Cambodian durians at this market. Sellers will use their sharp knife to open the fruit for you. Walking around the market was fun to see locals sell...  more »
  • If you like fresh and cooked crab under your eyes with green pepper of Kampot, this is the place. 5-7 dollars per kilo.

  • Some small shack like restaurants on the water serving extremely fresh crab. I had crab stir fried with a sweet smoky chili sauce with locally produced fresh peppercorns. Really amazing flavor. One of the best dishes I have had in Asia.
  • Market. If you want a fresh seafood in Kep, let's come here. But remember, if you are a barang, this is so expensive market.
  • Love it. Seeing the culture of selling crabs and cook it on the spot. The environments are so natural and just lovely.
  • It is very bad unhygienic place. Rats are running around. The market is more smoke then fresh air. Nothing special on it. If you want food, look for restaurants around plenty with good food, and same price.
  • True local fishermen delivering fresh produce to be cooked on site. Terrific way to experience the fishing industry up close.
