The best Kep secret
An upcoming riviera between Phnom Penh and Ho Chi Minh City
Though not established with exactitude, advised historians believe that Marco Polo had passed by Kep, to exchange or collect some black pepper and other spices. This small village, nested between a mountain and the Gulf of Thailand, was once the weekend getaway destination for the French colonial high ranking officers and other diplomats. The king himself had built a small cottage on the slopes of the hill, facing the sea.
After 2 decades of abandonment, locals and foreigners alike are now captivated once more by the charm and peacefulness of this small peninsula. Hotels, guest houses and charming bungalows have grown throughout. But, unlike other touristic destinations in the kingdom, this small town has managed to gather the local officials and the professionals around a common goal: make Kep a great city to live in.
Roads are being built (and maintained), street lighting has been incorporated on every blocks, large properties are being parceled, new sand has been brought on the beach, and to top it off, the government is preparing a law to allow foreign property ownership.
