There is a series of limestone caves outside Kampot. Here are the guides who took me to two of them standing outside their house.
A drive around Kampot gives an insight into the developing economy of the Cambodian countryside. Go there quickly while there is still little tourist infrastructure! Technically this is a poor area, but the amount of work being done and the cheerfulness of the people make it hard to believe that it can remain so for long.
So three of us set out in a tuk-tuk, the national flag waving behind us ... my apologies to friends who know what a durian looks like and have seen half a million papaya trees in fruit: these are exotic things for other people I know.
Anyway ... an attempt at a photo essay and two videos: Music in a Cave Boys Showing Off
Travel Notes The guest house posted a list of items of interest, and negotiated a specific itinerary with us. The tuk-tuk and driver cost US$18.00 for the day, the cost shared between three people.
How I’ve been
Warwick and Wendy proved great companions. Thanks so much for suggesting the trip guys!
