    Pretty accurate review, it can get boring fast in that town.

    You turned right after the walking bridge and then a little further down on the left is the place you went right?

    Women about mid 30's, well build all over,dark skin and yellowish eyes, with a kid running about?

    If its that one I went there and rumped her :D

    As for bokor mountain great drive certainly a winding route but at tbe top driving around you must do about 50km!

    And the resort was kinda weird half empty but full of a few handfuls of chinese like a fake town lol

    Sounds like a nice (and cheap!) spot to hide out and focus on work for a while.

    I've met a few guys in Phnom Penh who have ranted and raved to me about how great Kampot is, but this location review confirms what I expected: Much too quiet for my taste. I'm a big time night owl, which is a huge reason why Phnom Penh is my favorite city with its 24 hour bars and restaurants.
    I did visit Kep a few years ago with a girl I knew at the time. She wanted to go there because she thought it was romantic, but she ended up getting too drunk and became very aggressive with me over a non-existent other woman. After she threatened to kill me in my sleep and cut off my penis, I decided to call the police and get a separate room at a different hotel for the night. I left town early the next morning, so I didn't get to see much of the place, but from what I could tell, there really wasn't much to see or do besides relax on the beach, which in my opinion, wasn't as nice as Sihanoukville.

    Nice find.Might do a visa run down there.Sounds like a lot of the businesses are expat owned.Would need to rent a bike to explore.

    Sounds too sleepy for me and I just can't do rub n' tugs. I have absolutely no problem tugging my own for free. Sounds like a nice place to retire if you're not much of a night life, monger type and probably even better if you're a hippy, stoner twat-packer sort. Poi Pet is a dirty little butthole of a town, but it's got casinos and I loves me some craps. :D

    1/5 is a bit harsh. Maybe I'll bump it up to 2/5. They're not hideous but I didn't see anything that made me stop and say shit I need to talk to her. But there are mongering options and I'm sure you can find some cute chicks if you looked a bit harder. I would go again with a girlfriend. I wouldn't go there to find one.

    Check out Sihanoukville. It's better than Kampot in every single way. Plenty of cute girls around both hookers and normal chicks working in hotels and restaurants. Right on the beach. Enough nightlife to keep you occupied but still a laid back small town vibe.

    Good lord man. Was this a Khmer chick? Never knew them to be that crazy. Glad you got out of there quick.

    I think that's right. On the corner by Rikki Tikki Tavi restaurant then walk back away from the river. There's a few massage parlors there and round the corner there's a bunch more.

    Always been meaning to see Snooky, but I never make it there. I once planned on staying a couple days/nights in Battambang, but I just kept going to Poi Pet. :D

    I know getting to SNV is a pain in the ass but it's worth a trip IMO. Now I see they have direct flights from HCMC, Malaysia and some other relevant city I forget now...

    Ya she was Khmer, and sweet as could be, up until that point.
    Looking back on it, the whole thing feels kind of stupid, but at the time I was genuinely afraid that she was going to do something crazy.
    After I went back to Phnom Penh, she wouldn't stop calling me, threatening to kill herself, and sending me pictures of her laying on the bed with her eyes rolled back in her head. Unfortunately for her, I was smart enough to know that you can't take selfies after you've overdosed on sleeping pills.

    @Skins, Nice Report on a Town which is supposed to have been Cambodia's best kept Secrets.
    Probably they never meant best kept Secrets for Dating & Mongering but a place for Expats to retire, do some business and settle down with someone longtime.
    And it scores on Cost of Living, so it will steadily attract the Retiree's and Expat Businessmen + Tourists in the Days to come.
    Finally it's Cambodia, Mongering options though not present now, may come up when they sense a strong demand for it which may be lacking now as the
    Tourists visit Kampot only for a couple of Days before returning back to Snooky or Phnom Penh whichever is their main Base.
    It thus makes sense to develop the Mongering venues in those Cities rather than Kampot.

    Must have missed you by a day or two at most, thats a shame.

    I only spent two days in Kampot, and to be fair one of those was in Kampot hospital. But I liked the place, very chilled out.

    I also had a girl with me, so never really considered the women angle. But say you wanted to get away for a week with a young lady you could do a lot worse than Kampot.
