Kep

Hi! Kep, a good beach town near Sihanoukville, is also a must-see place in Cambodia. There are accommodation ranging from 5 USD to 30 USD. There are not many ways to get to Kep, due to its small size and position. Beside the seaside resort and islands of the Kep Archipelago, there are also some interesting sites to explore and visit such as the Kep National Park and surrounding caves.

From Phnom Penh, it is possible to get to Kep by bus. Ticket prices vary, but are pretty cheap, and are generally between $5 and $10, for this 4-hour trip. Of course, a taxi could also be used for this trip, which would cost around $40, and shorten the trip by some 2 hours.

From Sihanoukville, there is a minibus for only 5 USD. There are usually day trips from Sihanoukville to Kep arranged by the hotels and tour operators.

Kep is 2 1/2hours from SHV and the ONLY beach is small and man made. Now, Rabbit island off of Kep is nice :-)

Could be quite nice.

I love travelling by train. Amenities allowing of course.


Seven hours next to an open window with the wind coming in as I sink icy Ankor Beer after icy Ankor beer as the Cambodian countryside rolls on by sounds quite alright indeed.
Nah that was the first and most important question no booze and no ciggies allowed
I don,t think they have a pisser either the reason they stop so long in Tekeo and Kampot is for that reason .
I wanted to take the train but for the hours they leave time and amenities it,s easier to take the bus or cab
Beer is allowed on the train, no problem drinking it on train whatsoever. I had a few beers during my journey.

Same goes for smoking - the carriage near the front has windows you can smoke from, you can also smoke between carriages.

They also have toilets...not bad ones as far as trains in Asia go either. Dunno where you're getting your info from but it's wrong!

Katie - yeah, the trains have air con.
When we went to the sihanoukeville platform to buy tickets that's what the girl told us maybe she had her period who knows.
Leaving at 7am didn't look to appealing so we gave it a miss.
Was back down there the other week and found part of the reason why the trains have accidents. At least 3 shipping container doors hadn't been shut and just left flapping around.

Avoid Sihanoukville at any cost. Its the most dangerous place in S.E Asia. Just google it to see why.

Snooky itself is not dangerous, IMO anyway. I've been down there on visits for the last several years and have had nothing but good, safe times. It's the ride down and back in a taxi that'll scare the hell outta you.

Late April last year, me and a friend were heading back to PP in a taxi when we drove through a squall and heavy downpour. It rained so hard that the windshield wipers couldn't keep up with the amount of rain. Yet, the cab driver still had the pedal to the metal, essentially driving blind on that crazy two-lane highway. After a couple of minutes of this madness, we politely requested that the driver to slow down. He turned and yelled at us "I drive everyday, you not know." Had we not been in the middle of bumfuk, I would have bailed right there. The storm eventually passed and shortly thereafter we came upon a horrendous wreck involving a big rig truck. In any event, we eventually arrived in PP safe but there was no way that clown was getting a tip.

^ It's a good idea to ask around other barangs have they got a good driver. If they're any good they will keep their drivers business card on them.

The only people scared of Snooky are the paranoid backpackers who lets face it are scared of everything.
