Wow! I just saw the biggest crab in my life! I set off at 5 am to watch the sun rising by the crab statue. This really is a must see. I recommend that you go early to beat the crowds.

Well built statue - love the slogan about keeping Kep clean. Kep actually have a clean up day once a year - congratulations it is a shame some of the other towns do not. Statue can be seen from the street whilst travelling past.

You will not miss this BIG Crab statue. Read from the plaque that it was donated by Cambodia senior minister. Good for photo taking. Thats about it.

When there are the most beautiful stone statues around - why the plastic crab? Lovely area and great beach which is cleaned up each night - lots of accommodation available

Thank Jean D
