Kampot river and water scenery
Kampot is a provincial town with river and lots of water, near ocean. Hence one of the center spots in life and work of all people here is fishing and all around water. Water as a main resource for food and life plays an essential role in all Cambodia.
The nearby ocean, saltwater flooding the salt fields and the river being exposed to tide - high tide / low tide joint with the ocean host a special vegetation and creates unique sceneries and nature views.
The river in Kampot is rather turbid and dirty, nothing to invite for a bath or any kind of water sport at all. The river is a working and living environment, no recreation. Fishermen going to sea each day have their boats secured upriver. Limited fish life attracts a few fishermen to catch a fish as food supplement. The main fishing always takes place in the ocean - some 5 km from Kampot center.
