After a week in Phnom Phen it was time to head to the coast. Our first destination was Kep, a sleepy sea-side town known for dilapidated french-colonial homes and, more importantly, delicious crab.
|Fresh Seafood. Very, very fresh.|
|It was sooooooooo good.|
I still dream of it.
|The crabs still have nightmares about being coated in Kimly's delicious sauce.|
|On the boat from the mainland to Rabbit Island.|
|The idyllic Rabbit Island beach.|
|It was perfect.|
|Playing in the surf|
|And we even saw dolphins.|
|Sexy, swim-suit model dolphins.|
Kimly Restaurant - Go here. Eat crabs (in pepper sauce).
|You are delicious.|
The Kep hike up to Sunset Rock - The hike takes about 90 minutes to get up and 60 minutes down. It was a mediocre hike because most of it is along a dirt or paved road. Only the final 10-15 minutes is actually in the jungle. The view from the top at 10 AM, perhaps the wrong time to visit sunset rock, was good, but nothing to write home about, though apparently, it is something to write on the blog about.
Veranda Natural Resort - We stayed at the Veranda Natural Resort, which had a lovely pool, cute bungalows, and excellent food.
|The view from the top of Sunset Rock. It occurs to us that perhaps the view is better at, um, sunset.|
