The French originally established the coastal resort of Kep-sur-Mer in 1908 and it quickly became a chic holiday spot. In the 1960s wealthy Cambodians built luxurious seaside villas and mansions in lush gardens. Kep’s mixture of French style and Cambodian hospitality combines in its renowned Crab Market, actually made up of wooden shacks on stilts perched over the Gulf of Thailand. You can enjoy the famous local dish of Kep crab in Kampot pepper sauce in one of these seaside restaurants where modernity seems an ocean away.
