Cambodia is one of the amazing countries in Southeast Asia. Although the country is not famous for the stunning destination, if you have time to visit the country one time, you don’t want to leave there because of peaceful and poetic destinations. Therefore, the post will introduce Kampot town in the south of Cambodia for tourists. This is a quiet little town with big streets and dilapidated buildings. However, this is where a group of foreign tourists stop for the longest time in Cambodia, originally intended to be a few days into a week and finally 12 days. The charm of these visitors and the many others in Kampot are not as famous as Angkor in Siem Riep or the beautiful beaches of Sihanoukville but rather the slow pace and relaxation.
1 Slow pace of life
The calm is the charm of Kampot. Traffic is sparse so you can easily walk around the wide streets by bike, motorbike or on foot. The pace of life here is very quiet and not busy. You can lie lazily on a hammock or swim in the river right in the city to enjoy it, even though the weather sometimes does not please you very much. It is the reason why there are a lot of tourists choosing the place for relaxing.
2 Architecture and landscape
The architecture here is ruined and not beautiful but it has its own charm. The shops mixed with French and Chinese styles are covered with pale yellow paintwork with wooden windows in blue and green with faux silver. Kampot is not a pristine town, but on some streets, the blooms of blooms blossom to give the viewer a pleasant feeling. Moreover, tourists can also visit the Riverside located at the foot of Elephant mountain which is considered as the most attractive destination in Kampot. The riverside walkway attracts tourists and locals to roam and enjoy the sunset cocktails. Many choose to stay in one of the peaceful riverside guesthouses a few kilometers from the town. You can also choose to stay in the town or go to the beautiful and peaceful GreenHouse for lunch, kayaking, windsurfing, and swimming.
3 Yoga class
One of Kampot’s most memorable activities on the Kampot trip is cycling along the river for yoga classes at Banteay Srey and a women’s spa. This is a training center, providing shelter as well as helping young women in difficult circumstances. The upper floor of the wooden house with open space overlooks the garden and the river is the perfect place to do yoga. The price for a good yoga session is only $ 5 (or $ 30 for 10 sessions). Classes usually take place at 11 am and 5 pm daily. In particular, the morning classes are more active. The spa offers a special relaxing feeling and the gym space is a great place to enjoy a massage or treatment, then have lunch at a vegetarian cafe and sit back and watch the river.
