Island, sounds very exciting right?
When I think of all the beaches that I have visited, Koh Rong is one of my favorites, one of the best in Southeast Asia. When you talk about beaches in Cambodia, everybody will, of course, think of Sihanoukville but recently tourists have been favoring Koh Rong and Koh Rong Samloem for their Cambodian beaches.
Hop on the bus to Sihanoukville until you arrive around lunchtime and wait until 3 pm for the boat to take you there, it only takes an hour to reach the island. When I arrived at the island’s pier I could see why the island is known as a paradise, the stunningly beautiful white and wild sandy beaches all along the island.
I decided not to be in the hostel or guesthouse, but I got a lovely bungalow with an absolutely gorgeous balcony. I settled myself in the hammock and gazed out at the sea in front of me. There’s no more time to wait for the beach, the baseball, and the swim.
Big Day on the Island
I was offered a discount last night, so why not! The next day I took a zipline tour, known as Koh Rong High Point Park. It was incredible and I do really miss doing it again.
A boat tour in the afternoon of snorkeling, fishing, and plankton viewing. It started a bit late in mid-afternoon but once the tour reaches the tiny island just next to Koh Rong everyone was really enjoying the snorkeling, seeing corals and fish.
The next stop was heading to the open sea for fishing but it seemed a lot of people got really seasick so we stopped at a beach called Sok San or Long Beach, it’s simply gorgeous and the longest beach on the island. There was nothing there other than a few empty resorts leftover, so we could relish the shallow warm water or wander along the empty, wild sand. This beach is the best vantage point for sunset viewing on the island.
Night Out on the Island
It’s all about the party drinks and dancing at the beach party. There are tons of bars and restaurants on the island, so you can never get away from this part of your holiday.
I only had a few days on the island, so after all these kinds of activities, I wish to have another week off to be on the island. However, I got the entire morning before jumping on the boat back to the mainland.
