Welcome to Krong Kep

Krong Kep

From Sihanoukville, a great destination is the once-popular resort town of Kep. The Khmer Rouge did a number on this town, but the crumbling villas of past French and rich Cambodian tourists add to its ruinous mystique. A beautiful coastal road and nearby Rabbit Island provide present day visitors with a relaxed atmosphere. For the best restaurants in town, and best seafood in Cambodia, try the shack-like buildings near the water and order the crab. Kep is around a 3 hour taxi ride from Sihanoukville, or a 4 hour bus ride from Phnom Phen.


Information & Facts

Address
3 hours southwest of Phnom Penh
Language
Khmer is the official language. French is also spoken, but English is fast becoming popular with the younger generation.
Money

Riel (KHR) is the official currency and is divided into 100 sen. Foreign currency is difficult to exchange with the exception of US Dollars. Most transactions require cash. US dollars and Thai Baht are accepted, although smaller transactions are usually done in riel. A torn US dollar note renders it useless. Credit cards are only accepted in a limited number of tourist-orientated hotels and restaurants in Phnom Penh and larger towns. There are a few ATMs in Phnom Penh, but they shouldn't be relied upon as a source of money; travellers cheques in US dollars or sterling can be cashed at a limited number of banks and larger hotels, though travellers cheques are not recommended due to limited acceptance.
