Cambodia: The Kep Revival
55 images Created 13 Aug 2010
The coastal town of Kep in the 1950's and 60's was the most exclusive retreat for the elite of Cambodia. Large villas, including those of the Kings and Prime Minister, dotted this untouched coastline. Then the Khmer Rouge took power and all the villas were either destroyed or left to the jungle, many even today remain in a dilapidated state. But now Kep is rising again and with careful planning may return to its former glory as Cambodia's most exclusive retreat.
