Kep was once Cambodia's premier beach town, drawing weekend holiday-makers to its shores and with seaside villas of the privileged class. Nowadays the old villas are in ruins and the town is known more for its oceanfront seafood stalls and crab restaurants than for its beaches. Meanwhile the provincial capital of Kampot is of quite a different character with quiet lanes, classic French colonial architecture and very few tourists all which lends Kampot a quaint, small town ambiance. Visitors come to Kampot as a base to trek or visit Bokor Hill Station a once-grand casino and the nearby beaches of Kep and it surrounding islands, particularly Rabbit Island.
