Driving along the ocean when all of a sudden...a giant crab! The Crab of Kep is a great welcome for those visiting Kep.

If the weather is nice you can simple have a long walk to the statue. We have seen the giant Crab on the way to pepper plantation. It is located very close to another Kep monument "Sitting Lady". Very clean and peaceful pedestrian walkway.

Cute but there is a lot better ways to spend your day. Ok. We stopped while traveling by on scooters and took pictures of it.

The statue is quite a landmark and a great place for a photo memory as it shows where you are. We stopped for pictures and you can sit on the wall with it in the background

The famous crustaceous anthropod from the Abyss has a statue in Kep. Kep is famous for its crab market and eating crab. I have a feeling the sea is getting over "fished" including the crabs, so tread lightly if possible. Maybe don't eat it every...More

We always stop at this statue to take a picture. Jump shots actually. You could also buy durian there too.
