Tips for you
We did the one day tour for 15 dollars per person. This included seeing salt making, caves, secret lake, lots of countryside, pepper farm, kep beach and crab market. Entrance fee to these places was included, we were provided with water throughout the day and one soft drink plus chicken fried rice for lunch on the beach. The pepper farm was my favourite bit as the process was explained well by an English guide and we sampled kampot pepper. My boyfriend liked crawling through the caves best! As we were going our guide (captain chims brother) kept stopping to point out interesting plants/fruit/veg to us, he was very nice and friendly and explained things to us as we went and he told us a bit about his life which was interesting, we got to spend roughly two hours on kep beach then tried fresh crab from the crab market. This was followed by the sunset and firefly cruise. Despite difficulties getting the boat to start and setting off half and hour later we got an amazing view of the fireflies and our driver made sure we saw them up close. Overall a fantastic value day with a lovely company, would definitely recommend!
