It is one of the newest Cambodian provinces, together with Pailin, Sihanoukville and Tboung Khmum, created by Royal Decree on 22 December 2008, which separated Kep Municipality & Damnak Chang’aeur District from the Kampot province, as well as adjusting several provincial borders. It is both the smallest and least populous province of Cambodia. The provincial capital is Kep District and the province contains the Kep National Park.
Kampong Trach District (Khmer: ស្រុកកំពង់ត្រាច) is one of 8 districts in Kampot Province and it is located at the eastern part bordering Vietnam to the east, Banteay Meas District to the north, Kep Province to the west and the Gulf of Thailand to the south.
Anlong Pring Crane Reserve is a small protected area in Kampong Trach near the Vietnamese border on the edge of the Mekong Delta. Sarus cranes nest in the dry forest north of here in the wet season. During the dry season, a few hundred of these cranes take up residence at this reserve. The reserve is an IBA protection at 217 hectares, established on 6 January 2011. There is a similar sanctuary in the adjacent Takéo Province since 2007.

Kep was Cambodia’s top seaside destination until eclipsed in the 1960s by Sihanoukville (and, soon after, decades of civil war). The town is full of ruined shells of old villas, destroyed in the Khmer Rouge days and during the subsequent Civil War and stripped down by the leaving Vietnamese army. Today’s Kep has recently become established as a Khmer holiday spot and is slowly being rediscovered by travelers. The once very poor Kep beach is now being filled up with snow-white sand from Otres Beach and is extended to 50m, still the main beach is located at the idyllic Koh Tonsay (Rabbit Island, 20min by long tail boat), just off the coast. The charm of this coastal resort lies in its peacefulness, its National Park, and its seafood.

Bokor Hill Station (Khmer: ស្ថានីយភ្នំបូកគោ, Sthani Phnum-bokko, French: Station d’altitude de Bokor) refers to a collection of French colonial buildings constructed as a temperate mountain luxury resort and retreat for colonial residents in the early 1920s atop Bokor Mountain in Preah Monivong National Park, about 37 km (23 mi) west of Kampot in southern Cambodia. Abandoned for long periods of time, modern infrastructure has made the location easily accessible as re-development is taking place. It was used as the location for the final showdown of the movie City of Ghosts (2002) and the 2004 film R-Point. To the north-east are the Povokvil Waterfalls. The Damrei Mountains have long been considered sacred and venerated by the Cambodians. The hill station was built as a resort by colonial French to help the french military who were stationed in that region. They were desperate for some relief from the oppressive heat that is characteristic to this part of the world. So is was, in the early 1920’s, Bokor Hill, a small resort town was built especially for the occupying french soldiers.|-anonymous-|. Nine hundred lives were lost in nine months during the construction of the resort in this remote mountain location.
Popokvil waterfall is situated on Bokor Mountain – a popular destination for tourists in Kampot Province thanks to its pleasant cool weather and beautifully landscaped hill. Just a few kilometers calculated from the hill station, the falls lie right at the edge of the highland march which covers much of the mountain-top. Because of the poor state of these bridges that cross the streams zig-zaggin over the hill, you will have no choice except walking the last kilometer to the waterfalls. It is pretty pleasant to walk, and if you are lucky enough, you may even catch sight of some interesting wild-life, such as giant red squirrels or monkeys. Even when coming to the waterfall might be a little bit challenging, but as soon as you see at firsthand the natural beauty of the falls, then you absolutely know, with no doubt, that it is definitely worth your efforts.
