THE CALL OF THE WILD AT KEP NATIONAL PARK

Kep National Park is a national park in Cambodia opened in 1993. The park includes a small mountain range with tracks and trails which are quite popular to tourists. You will be greeted by breath taking views of Phu Qouc ( an Island in Vietnam ) and Bokor mountain ranges in some part of the trails. It is also a perfect place for a sunset lover as it has a nice view of Sunsets.

This trip to Kep Province Cambodia was actually a beautifully unplanned trip. I never heard about Kep before and I had no idea how it looks like or what things I can do in there. I only see Phnom Penh and Siem Reap or the Angkor Wat in elementary postcards and recently Sihanoukville is getting more popular so I’d really no idea about Kep.

I took a bus from Phnom Penh going to Kep at Sorya Bus Terminal without any idea on where I would stay in Kep. While enjoying the bumpy journey going to Kep I got my phone on and searched for a place to stay and Bougainvillea Resort Kep hooked me and catch my attention so I immediately booked a room. It is located in the heart of the Jungle of Kep National Park and it is really good looking in picture as it is in person.

After 4 hours of bumpy journey I finally arrived in Kep! Yey! That is the best feeling ever when traveling — to reach the destination safe and sound. From Kep bus stop I hired a tuktuk and told driver to bring me to Bougainvillea Resort Kep.

Bougainvillea Resort Kep is really exceptional. The service, amenities and the staffs were very kind and attentive. I will definitely stay here again when I come back here at Kep.

 

My baggage of worries about exploring Kep was suddenly disappear when I learned that the resort can arrange a tour for me at Kep National Park. It’s like a magic! I was really happy to know that so I immediately arrange my things and stuffs and I booked a trip to the National Park the next day.

I feel broken hearted when I woke up the next morning and it was raining so heavy. I was so frustrated know for the fact that my schedule for exploring the national park would be ruined if the rain didn’t stop so I did some sundance haha! unfortunately, it didn’t work. I still took a shower so when the rain stopped we could leave immediately to national park. I waited for couple of hours and like a magic the rain stop and the sunshine comes out. Yey!

 

We wen’t to Kep Butterfly Farm to see different kinds of butterfly. It was really amazing as those butterflies are so sweet. They were like welcoming me when I enter their kingdom. Unfortunately, in the middle of our supposed to be nice tour, it started to rain again. We waited for almost 30 minutes and when the rain stop we continued exploring and we went to the other side of the National Park to see the views of Phu Qouc Island and Bokor mountain Ranges. It was really nice experience and I could say that Kep National Park is definitely one of a must visit place when exploring Cambodia.

Thanks to Bougainvillea Resort Kep for a very warm welcome and for taking care of me and also thank for organizing my trip. I would definitely come back and stay there again soon.

MALAYSIA : BEST OF JONKER WALK

I love bargaining until I get the products for the price I want. I remember when I was a kid, I always go to Divisoria with my mom to do errands every month and that made me enjoy going to street market. Continue reading “MALAYSIA : BEST OF JONKER WALK”
