Unless you are looking to use Kampot as a base to explore the Bokor National Park (which probably deserves its own write-up [stay tuned]) then this is more of an expat weekend getaway spot than an attraction of any global, or even national standing. But if you are looking to just chill the hell out, then this is worth a look.
Basically, you choose the accommodation you want. Rock up, check in, throw your bag in your bungalow grab a drink, secure your desired hammock and .... that's it, nothing more to do but rest and recover from all that strenuous travel.
Top things to do include: rolling off your hammock when you are forced to, taking a swim if the motivation grabs you and if you're feeling crazy energetic, take a very relaxed and peaceful kayak down the river: a good idea there is to go against the slight current initially - to avoid the rude awakening of having to put the slight effort into getting back to your cocktail and hammock.
If the wifi is working, you can check in to Facebook (like/share a few Travelindicator posts *hint-hint*) upload some pics of how awesome your life is, Skype the friends & family back home and check your emails - wait that last one almost sounds like work so maybe best to just leave that one alone.
Ok now that crisis is averted we can go back to taking it easy.
Enjoy. [Review by nikodonnell]
