The population of Kampot City some 150km southwest of Phnom Penh has grown and now attracts range of restaurants, hotels and other services. Its special vibe is its riverside and mountain setting and visitors spend their time enjoying nature.
Main industries are salt / pepper production, fishing, fruit (esp. Durian), light industry and tourism.
Peak season is November to April when tourist businesses open up along the river promenade near Old Market and in the old quarter. The fully paved promenade runs from New Bridge, past the Governor’s Residence to the Aquatic Center.
The old bridge has various styles after a number of Khmer Rouge breaches. It is now open to motorbikes and provides a reference point by day and night.

New government policy identified in ‘New tourist policy afoot’ (Phnom Penh Post 07/08/2022)
The government continues to prepare its “special tourist policy” to support growth in the ailing travel industry and add value to the sector by attracting various classes of visitors including long-stays, repeats, high spenders, potential investors and others who may become involved in socio-economic development.
The Ministry of Tourism on August 6 said in a statement that it had held a workshop on the latest draft of the policy two days earlier with representatives of about 60 public and private institutions to ensure that the instrument is comprehensive and well-integrated.
Ministry secretary of state Tith Chantha told the workshop that while a typical traveller spends an average of $700-800 per trip to Cambodia, the “special tourist” described in the policy spends $2,000-3,000, visits the Kingdom more often and stays longer, and a “majority” have businesses or jobs in the Kingdom, according to the statement.
“If tourists do obtain the rights to buy land to build lodging, it should only be allowed in the main tourism areas or in sacred tourism destinations such as Siem Reap, the coast, the northeast, but not in border areas,” Chantha said.
He shared that the policy aims to turn ecotourism into a more attractive investment option, and will contain mechanisms to attract more tourists in the future.
Speaking to The Post, Thourn Sinan, chairman of IMCT Co Ltd and Pacific Asia Travel Association Cambodia chapter (PATACC), agreed that the government should consider allowing investors to buy homes, as other countries do, as long as the appropriate terms and conditions are set.
Overall, the policy is “appropriate at this time”, “very beneficial” and will not only attract longer stays, but also bring in more travellers who may become investors.
