    Hi Kiersten,
    I know this is an older post of yours, but I am looking at traveling to the Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam area and I have found your blog to be incredibly helpful, and I was hoping you could answer a couple questions that I have about your trip!
    How did you hear about Kampot (since you mentioned it was so remote)? Were you at all hesitant to kayak down the river alone? How many days total were you in Cambodia & Vietnam? Was there anything that you didn’t get to see/do that you wish you could have??

    Thanks in advance, and a BIG thanks for sharing your blog! It is a great inspiration to budding travelers (like me!) who are on the brink of taking that first step into adventure… I think your blog will the the gust of wind that pushes me over the edge (thankfully!)

      Hey Nicole! So I actually heard about the Bed & Breakfast from a fellow traveler in Bangkok. I felt completely safe the whole time I was in Cambodia, especially Kep and Kampot. You can get to Kampot from Phnom Penh by car. It might seem weird but you will get in a car with a bunch of Cambodians and pay for your seat (sometimes almost 6 people!) so I recommend paying extra for shotgun. It’s easy to get a local SIM card for cell phone service (or use Skype) and you can call the B&B and the owner will help you get everything planned. I was in Cambodia for about a week and Vietnam for about 10 days. Shoot me an email if you have any further questions

  2. Absolutely love this post! I heard Kampot has the most amazing food, can’t wait to check it out when I’m in Cambodia. Thanks for all the tips Kiersten! xx :p
