Itinerary in Details:
Day 1: Phnom Penh – Tonle Bati - Takeo – Phnom Da – Kampot – Kep (L,D)
Depart from Phnom Penh for Kampot. En route, stop at Tonle Bati and visit Ta Prohm temple (12-13 centuries) and Yeay Peau temple (12th century).

Take a boat from Takeo to Phnom Da (please note that the speedboat does not have a cover or any shade – hat and sun tan cream essential). Visit Phnom Da temple, a pre-Angkorian laterite tower (6th century) and Asram Maharoseil (6th century), an Indian-style sandstone temple constructed in a style unlike any other temple in Cambodia (the climb up is easy as this particular Phnom ‘hill’ is not very high. The path up to the temple is steep, over some big rocks). Return to Takeo by boat and continue to Kep, formerly known as Kep-sur-Mer.
