Phnom Penh - Kep and Kampot

Phnom Penh - Kep and Kampot is a route only possible using land transport. It may be a possible option for flying when Sihanoukville airport reopens (hopefully by the end of the year) as its not far from Kampot and Kep. Options for travelers include private taxi or bus which are efficient and the route well-established.

Phnom Penh - Kep and Kampot by private taxi

Private taxis cost around US$60 and can take as little as 2 hours to get there, depending on which of the two you wish to stop at (148-164km). Best to look at sharing with fellow travelers if you are traveling alone through Cambodia in order to cut costs.

Phnom Penh - Kep and Kampot by bus

The cheapest we've heard of these tickets being sold for is US$4. Tickets can be bought from independent travel agents throughout town, or company ticket offices in or around Psar Thmei in Phnom Penh, ranging from US$4-7. Strangely, tickets to Kep itself are not frequently sold, and so you have to buy a ticket to Kampot, but jump off in Kep if you want to go here first as they pass here on the way to Kampot. Journey times should be around 3-4 hours, and prices will usually reflect comfort and reliability.

Once in either location - travel between the two is easy. They are only 25km distance apart and there are motos, tuk-tuks and taxis ranging from US$3-15.
