Firefly & Day Tours
Firefly River Cruise You can take a trip down the river at sunset to watch the sun set behind Bokor Mountain, then to see the trees lit up with glowing fireflies as it gets dark. The fireflies are not guaranteed but highly likely. Tours usually run every evening by at least one tour operator in town, just inquire at your guesthouse and they will be able to assist. The tour lasts about 45mins for around $4. Day Tour of the area If you have a full day to spare Captain Chim's River Cruise does a bargain tour of the area and comes highly recommended, with an entertaining guide that speaks good English. Can be organised through Captain Chim's guesthouse near the Durian Roundabout in town. Chim's day tuk-tuk tour is $15 and includes: - Salt lakes; seeing how the locals process the salt. - Elephant Cave (entrance fee included in the tour) - Pepper farm; an insight into the methods used. - Kep Beach; lunch (included). - Kep crab market. - Fishing village. - A free beer or coconut drink. - Sunset cruise with the fireflies. In the interest of fairness, please check with your guesthouse if they have any recommended tours.
