After breakfast at the hotel we make time to learn more about a dark page in Cambodia’s history. We visit the Killing Fields memorial site, listen to the stories of survivors and pay our respect to the countless victims of the Khmer Rouge. After this visit we drive down South to Kampot province.
After lunch we drive onwards to Kampot, a riverside village in southern Cambodia renowned for producing one of the world's finest peppers. In the years before the war took its toll, no self-respecting French restaurant in Paris would do without Kampot pepper on the table. A local organization run by a passionate Frenchman is assisting this recovery by marketing the highest grade of pepper from Kampot. Profits are devoted to forming a small farmer's cooperative to restore the peppercorn industry and invest in improving pepper production and cultivation. We visit the plantation and taste this fantastic product, and get a chance to buy the Kampot pepper straight from the source.
We continue on and drive to Kep, our home for the rest of our tour. Kep was once the top beach destination in Cambodia. This now quiet beach town has the reputation for having the best seafood in the country. And while the tourist industry is picking up as of late, there is still a very laid back vibe to be found in Kep.
Overnight at our hotel in Kep. You are free for the rest of the evening. There’s lots to explore and plenty to eat in town. The paltry price of the fresh and exotic seafood leaves many travellers with mouths agape and only adds to the delightful gastronomic experience.

Day 9: On the beach in Rabbit Island (B, L, D)

After breakfast at the hotel we go by boat from Kep beach to Koh Tonsay or Rabbit Island. Bring your swimsuit and enjoy the warm water, do some fishing or just sunbathe on the beautiful beaches. We organize a picnic on the beach with fresh crab curry made by local vendors.
In the afternoon we go back to Kep and have some free time for a stroll through town, some last minute shopping or some relaxing at the hotel. For dinner we enjoy Kep’s number one asset, the seafood. The road behind the beach is clogged with seafood vendors selling everything you can (and can’t) imagine. Especially the fresh crab is plentiful, and is the number one local specialty. We enjoy an amazing farewell dinner and try the fantastic stir-fried crab with Kampot pepper.
Overnight at the hotel in Kep.
