After 3 days in Siem Reap and a night in Sihanoukville, we headed to Koh Rong for a total change of pace. Koh Rong is a small beach island that is a 2 hour ferry ride from Sihanoukville.
We spent our 3 nights in Koh Rong in beach bungalows. Originally we were supposed to stay in one of these treehouses, but they were all booked, so we ended up staying in a bungalow, which is essentially a ground level treehouse.
There are about 10 restaurants and bars on the island, no TV’s or computers, and a whole lot of beach. There was not much to plan or do, so we spent a lot of time relaxing in the sand and chasing crabs on the beach.
On our last day, we decided to take a small boat to the north side of the island to hang out on a more secluded beach area. The Long Beach is a 3km mile stretch of beach with super white sand, but they were filming Survivor there, so we had to boat for an hour and a half past that to the other side of the island in this small rocky boat.
