Before this place was very interesting. I loved the old french casinohotel. Now it is restored and boring. Go to this place for the road up there. not for the old hotel.

I toured the mountain station with a local English speaking guide. This was beneficial in understanding the background to the deserted areas and the new and restored. It was fascinating and horrifying to hear the stories of recreation and violence that are wrapped up in...More

This is my favorite attraction in the Kampot area, an amazing ride up the mountain and beautiful historic grounds with amazing views down to the Straits of Thailand on an unclouded day. You will enjoy!

Was disappointed with this. Chinese development is ruining the whole area. If you have the time ok but otherwise don’t bother

It is not longer the beautiful abandoned place that it used to be! The Chinese investors owners of the huge casino down the road decided to forget about history and rebuild this place (with really awful cheap cement). So the place is again back to...More

I first became interested in this place when I saw it in an old movie: "City of Ghosts" with Matt Damon and James Caan. It was obvious that it had to be a real place; that is, not a movie set. So I asked a...More

Now it has been rebuilt as a luxury hotel. Very expensive and charming. Not my budget but wonderful location on a steep cliff. Friendly staff will show you the place. Maybe a bringer for honeymooners. On top of a mountain and very cool.

Probably best to stay in Kampot and make it a day trip from there. The bus PP to Kampot is 4.5 hours one way and the ride up to Bokor is another hour, so you'd spend 9 hours in a bus if such a day tour even exists
