Kep and Kampot
Lazy seaside towns. Kampot is famous for pepper, Kep is famous for crab. You can get Kampot pepper in either town, it's internationally acclaimed, and popular in French cuisine.
I'm going to refer to both these towns as KK, as they are near each other and I don't know the difference.
KK is a quiet, low-density town with spacious, deserted hotels on the coast. There isn't night life here, but the town is dotted with French-Khmer restaurants. Go to the market, chill and watch the sunset at a restaurant. Looking at the Wikitravel now, I'm shocked at how many activities there are in KK that we totally missed. That's what I get for losing my phone.
My biggest regret is that we didn't go to Bokor National Park through Kampot. And to top it off, they're ruining it with a huge, billion dollar casino.
There are many other things to do in Kampot and Kep, and I would recommend checking out the Wikitravel and planning thoroughly ahead of time. We used these two days as a highly unnecessary intermission before returning to Phnom Penh.
