Exploring the Beauty of Kampot on a Paddleboard

May 23, 2019 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: ,

Situated on the beautiful Praek Tuek Chhu River, Kampot is perhaps one of the least-known adventure destinations in Cambodia. But while it still has the feel of a quiet and forgotten French colonial town, it’s a place that brims with the potential for outdoor adventure.

The wide Praek Tuek Chhu River divides and becomes an estuary after passing through the center of town and this makes Kampot popular for a plethora of river-based activities such as wakeboarding and paddleboarding through beautiful canals, lined with mangrove trees, or even quad biking through the rural countryside.

Country life along the river banks here has changed little in a century, and with the town’s picturesque riverfront and stunning Bakor Mountains as a backdrop, standup paddleboarding (SUP) is certainly one of the most peaceful ways to take in the beautiful river scenery.

For Khiri Travel’s paddleboarding experience your guide will pick you up in a ‘remok’ (tuk-tuk) from the lobby of your Kampot hotel and bring you to a pier on the river. As you paddleboard down river, you will discover quiet coves, billabongs, cultural sites, stilt houses, and the French colonial architecture of Kampot town – all visible from your paddleboard.

For beginners, a brief introduction to using your SUP is included. During the trip, you will also stop for a local lunch with plenty of fresh fruit and coconuts included.
