"City in the Clouds"
Bokor Hill (Phnom Bokor)
The old French resort at Bokor Hill sits at an altitude of 1080 metres on the southern tip of Cambodia's Elephant mountains, and about 38km from the coastal town of Kampot. Built in the 1920s as a getaway from the heat of Phnom Penh and surrounding plains, it was frequented by the French colonialists and Cambodian elite. It was anticipated that the attraction would complement the seaside resort at Kep that had been established further up the coast.
