Kampot

Kampot (ក្រុងកំពត) is the capital of Kampot Province in southern Cambodia. The city is a quiet riverside town just a few kilometers from the Gulf of Thailand. Kampot is well known for its famous black pepper, which is widely available in Cambodia. The town is also famous for its Kampot fish sauce and durian. Kampot's main attraction is its relaxing riverside setting. While there is a sizable town set back from the river, the majority of visitors will spend most of their time enjoying the river and the local countryside. Kampot's economy is based on Salt and Pepper production, fishing, fruit growing (particularly Durians) and light industry with domestic and foreign tourism becoming significant contributors over the past three years. Together with much of the rest of Cambodia, Kampot is undergoing a development and population boom and now feels significantly larger than the 1998 census figure of 40,000 population (cited above) would indicate. The expatriate population in Kampot has also grown dramatically over the past five years and with it the number and range of restaurants, hotels, bars and general services.
