Bokor National Park Full Day Private Excursion from Sihanoukville
After pickup from your hotel or the cruise port your driver will take you to Preah Monivong Bokor Mountain National Park. Arrive at the giant stone face called Guardian of the Forest and take in the wide sweeping view of Kampot town.
Visit the huge Lok Yeay Mao monument which was constructed in 2010. At 29 meters tall, sitting in a pose of meditation, and facing the coast, Lok Yeay Mao is considered a protector spirit of travelers, fishermen and hunters.
Enjoy a delicious lunch at the Lotus restaurant.
After lunch visit The old casino, named Le Bokor Palace, it was the main building of the Bokor hill station. Its location was chosen at 1000 meters altitude to provide settlers tired of the hot weather a welcome cooling respite, especially during the dry season. Le Bokor Palace was described as ''heaven'' by the Colonial French. It was famous as a summer escape for the French elite and the Royal Family. Le Bokor Palace sits on the edge of a cliff overlooking the Opal Coast where it enjoys a moderate climate and picturesque location.
The Old Catholic Church was built by the French in the early 1920s, during the war it was abandoned and fell into disrepair. Its walls and steeple remain however, and the church's design is in a style that is unusual in Cambodia. This location is a great spot to view the sunset and is very popular for pre wedding photoshoots.
Wat Sampov Pram is named for the resemblance of the oddly sculpted rocks to five traditional ships lined up next to each other. The temple was built by the mother of King Sisowath Monivong. Behind the temple there are breathtaking views of the deep blue sea and emerald green jungle that will amaze you. Wat Sampov Pram is the highest Buddhist temple in Cambodia, at 1,075 meters above sea level.
Popokvil Waterfall: Popokvil means ''swirling clouds'' which is totally appropriate as most of the time the mists whorl just above the waterfalls. The best time to visit is during the rainy season (May to October) when the falls are at their fullest. During the dry season it is still a lovely spot. Here you can see Nepenthes bokorensis, a type of carnivorous Pitcher Plant that only grows on Bokor Mountain. This is a great place to relax with green mountain views, and you can enjoy many water activities such as kayaking, canoeing, swimming, fishing and riding paddle boats.
