    Located on the sleepy coast of Kep, Cambodia, you’ll find one of the greatest crab markets in the world. The blue swimmer crabs are kept in ocean baskets, and when you got to buy them, they will actually fetch a basket right out for the ocean for you, and you can rummage through the live crabs and choose whichever ones you please. This is one of the most amazing markets I’ve ever been to!

    Cambodia Crab Trip - Phnom Penh → Kep, Cambodia, 146 km., 3 hours

    Kep Crab Market - One of the best reasons to travel to Kep, Cambodia is to eat seafood, and they have an abundance of fresh seafood. Although I didn’t have time to stay the night in Kep, we decided to just take a day food trip to eat crab.

    When you buy crab at the market, bargaining is expected, and the prices can fluctuate vastly. So keep this in mind when you’re buying your crab. On this day I paid 2 kg. crabs - $14 USD. One of the best things about buying crab here is that you can then turn around and cook your crabs right there at the market. Price to cook crabs - $1 USD. It’s an amazing experience of fresh crabs, boiled, and cooked right in the market.

    They also have lots of other seafood. We bought 3 pretty decently sized fish, some rice, and a few bottles of sauce to complete our meal. 3 big fish, rice, sauce - $13 USD

    You can then go to sit down at a drink vendor, and if you buy drinks, you can sit and eat your Cambodian seafood feast. Total price for drinks - 18,000 KHR ($4.34) *we had a lot of drinks, but I lost count.

    If the seafood and crab at Kep crab market isn’t enough, they have an abundance of durian and fruit at the market as well (it also happened to be durian season). 2 durians, 2 kg. mangosteen - $10 USD. Kampot, located next to Kep, is famous throughout Cambodia for durian, and it was an amazing durian.

    Best pepper in the world!

    Next, we drove over to Sothy’s Pepper Farm, that’s famous for growing Kampot pepper, what is considered the best pepper in the world. We tasted and learned a lot about pepper and it was a lot of fun. Pepper tour is free, but you can buy pepper

    Roundtrip taxi price for full day - $130 USD

    Crabs should be steamed never boiled. If you boil them the meat will be over cooked and it will kill the flavor. Each layer of crabs should be seasoned and steamed in beer. There’s no seasoning on those crabs. Omg.

    I'm from Thailand. After I've watching those Pakistan trip videos I start to think about going to explore Pakistan by myself. I just fall in love with those nice and friendly people and the best hospitality. I'm living in Thailand and I think some people are not as nice to the toursists as Pakitan people. Thailand and Combodia are so similar. We have ton of tourists come visit us each year and I think the places that have too many people those places will have less hospitality. Love your work and really enjoy it!
