Hardly worth mentioning as it was such a short trip, so I'll make it short and sweet. The road to Kep was paved but rough, just as the road the previous day. At least it was a short trip though. There wasn't a hell of a lot to see and, therefore, I don't have a hell of a lot to tell you. Kep itself is a pretty little beach town. There is a lot of interesting history there. The Khmer Rouge burnt the entire town, along with everyone who dwelt within it, to the ground. It's remarkable that in they have been able to rebuild in such a short span of time, although remnants of the massacre still exist. Kep as it is today is a little lacking in the excitement department and I found everything there to be slightly overpriced. It was a relaxing way to spend my last night in Cambodia though. The majority of the day was spent laying in a hammock looking back on my experience in Cambodia. Overall I enjoyed Cambodia, it's sights and it's people. Although, as when travelling anywhere, I definitely had moments that were less than enjoyable.
