Cambodia: A dream beach destination
Cambodia does not have to blush from its coastline.
If you like beautiful beaches, the beaches of Koh Rong are the perfect choice for you. Less touristically developed than its Thai neighbour, the Cambodian coasts also have their share of paradise islands, real treasure of the Gulf of Thailand. Koh Rong and Koh Rong Samloem are part of these treasures. The island of Koh Rong is about 2 hours from the coast of Sihanoukville in southern Cambodia, in the center, a jungle, coconut trees, waterfalls and a lake. Put on your masks and snorkel, we will take you to paradise in the bay of Saracen!
