Cost of living. This buzzword is often tossed around, usually with anger and frustration. With the escalating cost of living, where, how and when can one retire? The answer to two of those is Kampot.

While Phnom Penh is the capital of Cambodia, Kampot is just a two-and-a-half hour drive away from its hustle and bustle. This idyllic coastal city is famous for the Kampot peppers that bear its name. Its other crops include durian and sea salt. Beyond coveted produce, Kampot is making waves for its potential. Cambodia has adopted a new stance on foreign investments, enacting a Trust Law which has proven greatly popular in enabling foreigners to invest in land to be held by a trust. This has attracted over US$300 million from trust companies to date, a clear indication that the country has high appeal. There are also many upcoming projects such as Kampot Park and Sarita Waterside, which offer choice land plots to suit various purposes.

Kampot boasts several well-established expat communities, and an especially sizable French community. One can check out The Hideaway (+855 16 367 304), a restaurant which offers many faithful French cuisine staples and more.

Little wonder that r+ has chosen Kampot as the site of our inaugural r+ | grains cafe and upcoming hotel. Offering comfort off the beaten track, r+ promises opportunities and experiences that are both memorable and meaningful.

Come join us and live the good life at Kampot!
