The Best Tour Options and Things to Do in Kampot: Bokor.
Climb up to Bokor Mountain in Kampot, not far from Sihanoukville! Head all the way up to see the Lok Yeay Mao Monument, admire the clean greenery of High Thansur Bokor Resort, see the Old Casino and the Old Catholic Church and more of the best sights on the mountain.
There are some derelict buildings to visit, but even the old casino is being renovated and is currently covered in concrete. The scenery, when you avoid looking at the construction sites, is lovely and the air is clear and cool. I did enjoy seeing the Bokor Hill Station Church, which is exactly how it looks in the guide book, however, the amount of construction going on is disappointing.

Walking distance to locations like the Old Church and the pagoda. The staff was very friendly and accommodating - they went the extra mile to make sure our needs were met. Good value for money for our long weekend stay in Bokor. The same developer renovated the old French hotel which is called the Le Bokor Palace, and it’s new and modern. But.
Also known as the “Old Casino” on Bokor Mountain, the luxury resort was originally created as a cool summer retreat for colonial residents in the early 1920s. Perched on the Bokor Mountain in Preah Monivong National Park, the hotel was revived in the early 1960s to serve high-ranking government officials and wealthy business people, and became the favourite retreat of His Majesty Norodom.
A tour to Bokor National Park is part kitsch, part history lesson, part breathtaking views. For a period during the Khmer Rouge reign, they sought refuge here while battling the Americans. The old buildings that still remain are riddled with bulletholes. The views over the sea are incredible. Wandering through the old casino is eery, but standing on the roof and taking in the expansive ocean.
