Rainclouds setting over the town of Kampot in southern Cambodia and on the coast of the Gulf of Thailand. Kampot is a sleepy seaside town four hours away from Phnom Penh and is best known as the jumping point to trips to Phnom Bokor (Mt. Bokor, pic). It is known internationally for its aromatic pepper. Locally, it grows the best durian (the spiky, stinky fruit that many foreigners love to hate) in the province and the prime producer of salt in the country.
