Why Old Kep Villas is special ?

In Kep there are several hundreds old Villas built before 1960 which are now totally destroyed by the weather, by the Vietnamese retracting to Vietnam and by the local Khmer community looking for wires, door/window frames etc.


Most of the Villas are located North-West of Kep City and some can be found at Kep Beach. Two villas have been completely renovated and are now upmarket hotels (the Villa Romonea and the Knai Bang Chatt).


The internationally famous graffiti artist ROA from Belgium, has painted 3 Villas with super sized animals.

What to explore at Old Kep Villas?

Through these villas, you can understand a part of history of Cambodia when this country is still under crisis time. Of course there are many other villas which don't have any graffiti on it and are worth exploring. Some of them are really interesting for architects, since they have been designed by students of the famous french architect Le Corbusier.
