Kep was the most remote and quiet, easy-going place we visited on our trip. It’s a coastal town known for its amazing crab (which we had), its lack of ATMs (yes, there are no ATMs), and its National Park. We stayed at an eco-resort in the middle of the jungle called “Jasmine Valley” and it was amazingly isolated: no WiFi, no cell phone access, amazing lizards in the trees and on the walls, and a wave of noise every night from all the frogs. And rain every day. If I could recommend one place out of all the places we visited, it would be this resort. With hardy any tourists around, and with only maybe 10 other people staying at the resort, Jason and I were able to find the space of mind and body where we could truly relax.

Jasmine Valley even rents out skateboards and has a “skate bowl.” Who does that in the rain forest? Jasmine Valley does.
Very. Big. Leaves.
The beds (2x) were too big:
At night, a bat!
One too many cocktails.
