The Bokor National Park
Bokor National Park, packed with tropical forest and hidden waterfalls, is located at the southern tip of the Elephant Mountains near the Cambodia Vietnam border and is one of Cambodia’s largest protected natural areas. Sitting atop a 1080 meter hill is the Bokor Hill Station, a famous altitude resort during the French Protectorate and Prince Norodom Sihanouk regime in the 1960's. The hill station has been abandon twice in its history - once when the Vietnamese overran the place in the late 1940's while fighting for independence against the French, and then again in 1972 when it was overran by the Khmer Rouge. The gutted remains of a casino can be seen on a visit to the peak, which also offers fabulous views of both the Cambodian and Vietnamese coastline.
