Coconut in Cambodia

Kampot is famous for its coconut due to the sweetness of the water. On the way to Kampot Province, you can find lots of families along the National Road selling coconuts. They even wholesale to Phnom Penh. So if you are in Phnom Penh, if you intend to buy coconut, you always ask the seller that "Where is this coconut from ?" If they say from Kampot - then It is ok to buy. The price of coconut is usually range from 1,500 Riel to 2.500 Riel (0.5 USD).
