Bellow is the introduction of Kampot Town
If you long for an exotic, yet relaxed, and extremely affordable way of life then consider the provincial capital of Kampot right at the heart of Cambodia’s “Lost Riviera” along the country’s historic southern coastline.
Situated only a mile or so from the ocean, Kampot is a relaxing riverside retreat surrounded by a mesmerizing mix of mist-covered mountains, fertile fields, forests, and all kinds of fruit farms and plantations.
The city has been a favorite with foreign travelers for over a century dating all the way back to the colonial era when the French began cultivating the area into the country’s most prestigious coastal setting.
During the 1960s the Riviera continued to flourish attracting a who’s who from around the world including monarchs, heads of state, and glamorous icons such as Jackie Kennedy taking in the sights.
Fast-forward fifty years and the Kingdom of Cambodia has re-established itself among the top travel destinations in Southeast Asia, especially with Americans who account for more visitors to the country than any other western nation.
And amid this renaissance Kampot has once again regained its rightful place as one of Cambodia’s most popular coastal locations and not only with tourists but also for a growing population of expats.
Despite officially being the largest city in Cambodia, Kampot feels more like a laidback little town in part due its countryside locale and curious blend of old-world architecture, traditional landmarks, and colonial buildings.
The riverside is at the very heart of life in Kampot appealing to expats and locals who soak up the area’s relaxed ambience and visual charm. The city center is very easy to navigate with many preferring to get around by foot or bicycle since so many places are conveniently located close to the river.
English is widely spoken in Kampot and has long ago replaced French as the most popular second language with it being commonly used by almost everyone working in tourism, hospitality, and among the newer generations who make up most of the nation’s youthful population.
Cambodia not only offers reasonably priced and accessible annual retirement visas but also has the unique advantage of using the U.S. dollar alongside its national currency. This makes it much easier for expats that run their own businesses as well as retirees who rely on income from overseas pensions.
In recent years several national, regional, and international banks as well as various microfinance institutions have launched full service branches in Kampot while also increasing the number of standalone ATMs at useful locations all across the city.
This means it is now very convenient for expats to access cash, open local accounts, apply for debit and credit cards, receive or send transfers internationally, and even use internet banking.
Kampot is blessed with a tropical climate which guarantees warm weather and sunshine every month of the year. This is a major point of appeal for those who are planning to escape the cold weather and freezing winters in their home countries.
January to April are generally the hottest months of the year with temperatures of up to 90 F. However, Kampot’s coastal location ensures there is a refreshing breeze from the Prek Kampong Bay and Prek Tuek Chhu rivers.
The rainy season usually runs from June to September and is an excellent time to visit Kampot as the surrounding countryside positively blossoms. The rains tend to stop from October and there is often a cool season during November to December where the temperature drops as low as 21 F.
If you wish to experience a colder setting all you need to do is take a 30-minute drive up to the Preah Monivong Bokor National Park in the Damrei Mountains, which is 1,000 meters above sea level. Not only are the views of the coastline outstanding but the park has a unique ecosystem with waves of fog continually rising up and rolling across the top of the mountain surrounding visitors with refreshingly cool white clouds and mists.
