what could Koh Rong?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

what could Koh Rong?

Hi all

anyone been to Koh Rong lately?
I will sadly bypass Snookie this year for obvious reasons, hopefully the islands are still worth a visit?

I haven't been there but haven't read of too much negative change on here. The mission seems to be that you need to get to S-ville by 1 to be sure of getting out the same day.Think FLB said that the other day anyway.

I've been several times to Koh Rong but last visit was a 5 night stay on the island in Feb 2018, which was also my last visit to Sihanoukville for the foreseeable future. The island has developed a lot since I first went in Feb 2014, so many places to stay at now & many expensive luxury resorts too for those who don't like to slum it. There are plenty of boats over to the island after 1pm. The Koh Rong website below is the best I've seen & an excellent information source, including ferry timetables & information on all the different beaches to stay at

Hi I looked at Koh Rong Sanleom, it seems a bit quiet for me

I don't want to be in the heart of back packer party town but i do want the choice of some activity at night
Really what we are looking for is the same vibe as Otres, we usually stayed in II but often went down to I as it was a bit livelier

I've been looking at somewhere walking distance to the jetty
