|Phnom Sampov / Sampeou|
At dusk there is a spectacular sight as a cloud of bats take to the sky on their nightly hunt for insects from the Phnom Sampeou area. On our way back to town we stopped at the Kamping Pouy reservoir, this was constructed during the KR regime, thousands died building the enormous length of dam. Today it’s a popular picnic area, and home to many species of birds. Article by Kevin Bolton.
