Kampot is the capital of Kampot Province. The city is a repose riverside town from few kilometers from the Thailand Gulf. Kampot was famous for its black pepper, which is available in every part of Cambodia.

The island of Koh Tonsay is one more place to be visited from Kampot by boat.

 

Kampot is an excellent tourist place and the city has only just undergone several changes. There are a variety of charming hotels, resorts and guesthouses in the towns of Kep and Kampot, whereas hotels and places to stay can be found in the other province. The province is linked with the rest of the country and Vietnam by well-asserted partly unpaved road. A person would find several structures of brick of 5th century AD amongst the stalactites and stalagmites that are made in the cave. The visitors would also look for the 4th century structures which are the proofs of the state of Funan. When a visitor enters the cave he would find limestone establishments in the elephants’ shape. The entry of the next cave lies in 300 meters from the first cave and if anyone wants to reach there he has to climb different piles of rocks and undergoes small openings.
