Kep, Cambodia

WS and i decided to rent bicycles to go around Kep

From our guesthouse we walked to this place called Crab Market and grabbed a bike each. Three US dollars for two bikes till sunset if i remembered correctly

Along our ride we saw the beautiful seaside so we stopped to take some pictures (which didnt turn out that well cuz it was toooo sunny)
The Lonely Planet travel guide said that there is a town in Kep. We rode past a little place with shops and further away, i was following her lead. I said we should get lunch, and she said yeah we'll have lunch in the town. I said... i think we past the town! Hahah

 Nice little restaurant on with balcony for u to dine in.

Orchids decorated the place

I ordered my favourite Cambodian fish amok, which she introduced to me on my first night in Phom Penh

We cycled around more after lunch

1. By the beach people had plastic bags of crabs, which they were trying to sell to us

2. The guy tore the live crab open and showed us how to eat it sashimi style
3. WS tried it but in this Cambodia trip i wasnt adventurous with food at all because the trip was shortly after the Bali trip which had toxic food
By the beach for a bit of sunset.

There is a mermaid statue there, not much else.

Just relaxed and took photos

I waited till the man rowed his boat there and i took this shot this way on purpose! Haha

Hammocks by the beach. We didnt hang around for the sun to totally go down because we needed to cycle back to Crab Market and we didnt want to do that in the dark
The guestroom we stayed in for that night! Each of my 3 night in Cambodia i slept in different guesthouses in different towns! That was my very first taste of backpacking

I was there two years ago and i was impressed. Unfortunately i had no time to visit it very well because i was there for only two days, but i hope to visit it again very soon. I recommend this place, it is very nice.
