I did give this a 4 star as a photographer and I found the whole area very interesting. But I am also appalled. Described as a national park the upper areas have been completely wrecked by greed selling out to the Chinese who have abandoned scores of half built concrete bunkers. I scratched my head in disgust. I can see the plan was to build some kind of thriving city in the clouds for rich Chinese, but really who would actually wanted to live there. Most of the upper area is dilapidated and run down, a complete mess, I did visit the old casino which has had some half hearted attempt to revamp into a hotel, and didnt bother going to look at the new casino. Extensive pagoda area and the views are stunning, although it was cloudy!

Lok Yeay Mao Statue is a giant 29 metre tall structure occupying a commanding spot on Bokor Mountain, at the beginning of Thansur Bokor Highland Resort. You can’t missed it.

According to info available, Lok Yeay Mao is the protector of the sea. Visitors would stop by to pay respects, pray for journey safety and protection.

I noticed that by the side of the giant statue there was a row of 12 animals, each with a small tin box in front.

I think the animals represent the 12 Chinese zodiac signs. One particular animal (the pig I think) has got a few cash notes stalked in front of its face whereas the rest were largely empty.

It was a cool day and a great spot for photos.

This was a very interesting, weird place to say the least. The highlight was definitely the monkeys on the way up, we got to feed them bananas through the windows of the minibus. We then saw a giant lady Buddha which was cool, an abandoned casino (mildly interesting) and quite a few old temples, along with a waterfall which was really nice. I went to a couple of squat toilets along the way too which is always nice.

I really enjoyed the scooter ride up this amazing winding road to the top of this mountain. I stopped many places on the way. Old houses, temples, monuments, waterfalls, churches and amazing viewpoints to find up past the church. A definite must do in Kampot I really enjoyed my day.

Bokor Mountain offers spectacular views of the Cambodian coastline and the Gulf of Thailand, and is well worth a visit. Unfortunately, widespread (and ugly) construction on the mountaintop is destroying at least a part of it.

Ghost town. A very strange place, you see houses that are completely empty. Pristine.
You need a scooter or tuk tuk to get between the various buildings in the large national park

Especially if you have your own motorbike you'll love to race up that mountain. The winding road with almost no traffic will make any petrolhead's heart beat faster :-)

I rented a scooter. From Kampot it’s about 10 to 20 minutes to the entrance of the park on National Road 3. There is a huge gate saying that you are entering the park.
From the entrance to the top it’s about an hour.

You can buy food and drinks at the big Buddha statue and at the waterfall. However, if you wanna save some money pack something before you go up.

Unlike mentioned in another review, a full tank of gas (about 4 liters) got me up and down the Mountain without a problem. Still had half a tank left when I got back.

Overall the whole trip took me about 5 hours (hung around at several spots for quite some time).

I generally recommend this park, it’s a gorgeous and fun scooter ride up and down the Mountain (Road is perfectly paved). Just make sure it isn’t too cloudy because the view up there might be limited otherwise.
