Bokor National Park is one of the main attractions in the province Kampot. Officially named Preah Monivong National Park, it is one of two national parks in Cambodia to be awarded the title of the Association for Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Heritage Park.
Covering over 1500 km2 of rainforest, grasslands and deciduous forest, the national park is home to a vast array of exotic animals including the Indian elephant, leopards, Asiatic black bears and hundreds of different bird species.
Besides the many different animals, the park offers an abundance of attractions for travellers including the Bokor Hill station and the Popokvil Waterfall. The Bokor Hill Station is located on top of Phnom Bokor, a hill that is about 1080 m high. In the 1920, it served as a French summer post and includes hotel and a casino. Both buildings have been reopened which makes them the perfect location for a lunch break. On clear days, travellers can have a clear view over the province and the Gulf of Thailand while enjoying the fresh air and delicious Cambodian dishes.
Located about 5 km northeast of Bokor Hill Station is Popokvil Waterfall. It is a two-tiered waterfall separated by a natural pool. Although they are too shallow to swim in, the waterfall is a great place to relax and unwind away from the crowds.
