River sunset Kampot - sunset boat ride down river to ocean

Quite popular in Kampot are sunset boat rides on the river

Sunset is a few minutes before 18:00, but of course changes a little during the course of year. Daily at 15:00 afternoon one or several boats leave for sunset trips on the river. Either upriver or downriver. If you book in advance and are a small group, you usually can decide which way to go during sunset hours.

If you are lucky you get a place in a river boat without prior booking. Just be on time at the small peer about 100 meter north of the post office. You could also go an river boat rides during other hours, but then you'll have to arrange date and time in advance.

When arranging the price or trying to "bargain" think of your own salary and how much you are worth - these people working for your pleasure are of equal worth and hence deserve the same pay per hour as you love to receive or ask for!

The two directions - up or down river - are totally different in scenery. Here below you see the scenery along the river down to the ocean. Mangroves, fisher villages, a Muslim fisher village with Mosque are a few of the sceneries you'll see. During low tide you can walk and the sand bank. The children digging for clams, other kids going further out to sea for fishing. Poor families along the river, but no one complaining. All have food each day, all have a (simple ) home. All are living in nature and amidst friends and loving neighbors.

These days and months of global economy crisis, millions complain about getting into trouble paying the many cars or huge house they bought without having earned it. ... If you are among such plaintiffs, look at the reality of this world, see how Billions of normal people live, then review your own life and adjust accordingly.
