Quiet and riverside
A good three kilometres away from the CBET centre, Chhay Kpos is a quiet, riverside retreat with four small wood-frame bungalows.
Right beside the Chhay Kpous waterfall, the property also has a covered bar and restaurant area, as well as riverside platforms tucked into the trees, on which to while away some easy hours over a picnic or a few beers. The family were very friendly and helpful as they could be, though spoke very little English. They even freely offered bananas to this tired traveller. This is a great spot if you want more quiet than you can get in the village, or just a little rural isolation. The ensuite rooms are clean, though a little bit tired, but benefit from the situation among some covering tree shade, which will help to keep them cool.
The road in and out is perfectly flat, and doable in a leisurely 15 minutes on a bicycle. If you know you want to stay here, we suggest packing a head torch.
