Why Teuk Chhou Rapids is special ?

 Food vendors and gazebo structures provide the amenities for a kick back and soak it up lazy afternoon. Since the construction of the Kamchay hydro dam further upstream there is less water in the rapids but still worth the trip. Teuk Chhou is in fact a series on sparkling natural rapids with crystal clear water which is always cool and fresh. A line of food stalls satisfy picnic makers with everything from fruit to whole roast chicken and catfish, to banana and coconut roasted in banana leaves (a specialty of Kampot).

It is the best place to spending on swimming and having with your family in a beautiful river.

A nice place to stop if cycling along the road to the zoo which is nearby. The rapids are about 300 meters further north where there are numerous food and drink stalls. It's pretty much the last stop as further on still the road comes to an end at the power station. The rapids are at full flow when they open the gates at the dam but it can happen at any time as it depends on the level of the water in the dam and if it is dry season or wet season. Despite the almost lack of rapids it's still a nice place to go for a paddle or lie in a hammock (I paid 2000 riel).
