‘Kampi - The land of hammocks’

I used to think that a hammock was typical of Latin America.
Nowhere else than in Cambodia, however, I’ve ever seen so many hammocks.
The best leisure time for the Cambodian seems to be relaxing in a hammock.

15 km north of the city of Kratie you’ll find the village of Kampi.
It is especially known to see the river dolphins in the Mekong. For me this was a real tourist trap.
However, in Kampi on the east bank of the Mekong and just a few kilometers from the place where you embark to see the dolphins, I discovered a beautiful small village on stilts.

When entering the village I was asked to pay a small entrance fee. It turned out not to be a village but a ‘resort Cambodian style’.
Many wooden huts were built in the river above rapids. The place is also known as ‘Kampi Rapids’.
These huts act as a resort for the modest Cambodian who wants to relax by the water.
It is possible to eat there and then spend hours relaxing in in one of the hundreds of suspended hammocks.

Unfortunately, during my weekday visit, there were few visitors.
Yet I found this completely unexpected site a very remarkable place.
Next time I show an overview of this resort / village.
