Kampot, in southern Cambodia, sits on the banks of the Preaek Tuek Chhu River and at the foot of the Elephant Mountains. Due to its location, this city holds a captivating, sleepy charm. Traffic is minimal, and it’s easy to get around the area on a bicycle. The city was once under French rule, and this shows in the 19th-century French-colonial buildings that pepper its streets. Be sure to visit the rest of the countryside—after all, Kampot is a city famed for its salt fields and pepper plantations. Hire a tuk-tuk or rent a motorbike to tour these stunning, untouched regions on the outskirts of town. The food scene is spectacular too—sample local fares such as durian, noodles in a rich broth, and Western cuisine from stylish bistros. For added convenience, check out the best Airbnb vacation rentals in Kampot, Cambodia.
Be one with nature at this lovely house located just 5 km (3 mi) from the heart of Kampot, on the foothills of Bokor Mountain. Both bedrooms and the living area come alive with plants—fronds of palm, ferns, and trailing money plants. An open and grassy courtyard at the centre of the house is the perfect place to enjoy spectacular sunsets. White walls and warm wooden furniture offset the greenery perfectly, adding summery cheer to the place. Both bedrooms are air-conditioned, complete with queen-size beds and en-suite bathrooms stocked with toiletries. Cooking in the well-equipped kitchenette will be a joy, and guests will also have access to free Wi-Fi. Best of all, you can bring your pets with you here.

Located on Fish Island, this tranquil retreat is 6 km (3.7 mi) away from the town centre of Kampot. The bungalow itself has one mezzanine-level bedroom and a smaller cot tucked under the stairs. If you want to sleep under the stars, the detached cabana, which comes with a mattress and mosquito net, should do the trick. Enjoy views of the river and fishing boats bobbing by from the top floor of the cabana. Guests can go for a dip in the river or take a rented kayak out for a spin from the property’s private dock. The kitchen has plenty of counter space, the necessary appliances, and pantry basics such as bread and eggs. Dine under the thatched-roof gazebo in the entryway while relishing the sea breeze.
