We took a mini bus from Kampot to Sihanoukville, where we transferred to a two hour boat trip which took us to the stunning island paradise of Koh Rong. Koh Rong is pretty basic – restaurants and guest houses run on generators, there are no cars or roads and there isn’t much to do but swim and sunbathe, which was awesome. We stayed in a grass hut here and spent four days enjoying the dazzling blue water, consistent hot weather and sun, and great food (even an Italian restaurant!) One of our highlights was on our last evening when we went for a swim at night and experienced phosphorescence – glowing particles in the water that we could see when we moved – these were incredible! Koh Rong was so lovely – very much a backpacker’s hangout, but for those who don’t need particularly fancy accommodation definitely a good option.
