Flying Dog Farm

Welcome! Opened June 3, 2018, in memory of our beloved mother’s birthday, Flying Dog Farm is named after our little puppy, Happy, and it is a NEW Kampot pepper farm & shop in Kep Province, Cambodia. We envision our pepper farm in a garden-like atmosphere, chemical-free, in a Cambodian-style country setting from the 1960’s. We grow, process, and package our Kampot black, red, and white pepper to the highest quality. “Kampot pepper is to Cambodia as champagne is to France.” Harvesting season is from January through May and high-tourist months are from October to March annually. Please visit us for a free tour, quality time, soft drinks and, of course, delicious, gourmet Kampot pepper. We are open Tuesday to Sunday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Closed: Mondays. Thanks!

Met Sothy and John the gracious owners of Flying dog pepper farm. Had a great time talking w them and visiting the plantation.... Also had the priviledge of picking some of their enormous "Taiwanese" mangoes, and sharing lunch with them. Sothy took us around for a commented visit, explaining the various stages of the pepper culture, harvest, and processing....

Sothy's Pepper Farm

See how famous Kampot Pepper - Green, Black, Red, and White - is produced, without chemical fertilizers or insecticides, taking a tour in Cambodian, English, French, German, Japanese, or Spanish. We use solar and wind energy. We have one simple bungalow - inquire for prior arrangements. We can be reached from Kep (or Kampot) by tuk-tuk or taxi; many visitors come with locally rented motorscooters

Be careful if you drive on a scooter dusty sandy road! We arrived and was warmly welcomed by I believe (Paul volunteering from France) who offered us some delicious fresh tea. We didn't have to wait too long before we joined another English speaking group for the tour. You get to taste different stages of the peppercorn (green, red, black and black soaked in brine) then a short walk around the farm with lots of information regarding production and harvesting. We decided to stay for lunch fish amok and vegetable stir fry was definitely worth staying for as were the mango shakes. We also purchased some peppercorn dried. This helps support the farm as the tour is for free. Well worth the visit from kep.

Koh Tonsay (Rabbit Island)

Reviewed By LiseAlbertslund - Koblenz, Germany

Very very nice place to go for a day or two. Am must-do when staying in Kampot or Kep area. Nice beach, very relaxing atmosphere, good and local food. Simply loved it. Remember good shoes if you want to go for a hike to the other side of the Island.

Kep National Park

Reviewed By rutherhen - Edinburgh, United Kingdom

Kep National Park nestles on the hill side behind Kep and forms the back drop to the town of Kep. It is heavily forested but don’t be put off by this because there are a series of good walking trails that can be followed. The trails vary between an easy broad track which circles the park, right through to several smaller narrow tracks that will take you to areas of the park a lot less visited. We particularly liked the so called “stairway to heaven” which eventually led to the sunset rock with spectacular views over two bays and out to sea. The park is shown on several local maps but we found a hand drawn map showing the trails most useful. Even more useful were our hosts Andy and Linda at Casa Kep, very close to the park, who knew the trails very well and gave great directions.

Crab Statue

Reviewed By arco27 - Ocean Shores, Australia

Driving between the famous Crab market and Kep town we came across the statue of the big crab and also a mermaid, the both sit on the shore of Kep beach and make the place more interesting and remind us of Keps history of a French and Royal seaside resort. There are also lots of French Art Deco Villas dotted through the surrounding Jungles, mosty abandoned but some nicely or badly restored

Kep Beach

Reviewed By bruceh500

Enjoyed hanging out at Kep Beach for eight days last November. The beach itself is not long but the water is reasonably clean and it is favourite place for people from Phnom Penh, about 165 kms, to visit. We stayed at Saravoan Kep 3 star hotel at the top end of the beach which was only 20 metres away. It is next to the Kep square where there are general stores, a pharmacy and an ATM as well as local restaurants and cafes, serving both local and western food. It is also the stop for buses and mini vans. There are also plenty of tok tuks. We took a taxi from Phnom Penh for US$40. There is a variety of accommodation at Kep ranging from cheap guest houses to a few 4 star resorts. The place is not teeming with international tourists yet. From Kep Beach, in one direction is the Kep Crab Market and a string of waterfront restaurants and in the other direction and a bit further is the pier where boats leave for nearby islands. We spent a relaxing day on the nearest island, Rabbit Island, walking swimming, etc. The island has local restaurants and accommodation.
