It is the place to escape everyday life, unwind, chill out, snooze in a hammock, have a sunset cocktail and get your head into a great book. This year has been busy and hectic. You deserve it! Our recommendation is to escape the crowds and stay at “Lazy Beach“
Koh Thmei – Wildlife
Koh Thmei is in the Ream National Park. It is home to monkeys, civets, lizards, the fishing cat, and more than 150 different species of birds. There are few local inhabitants and little in the way of development. Accommodation on the island comprises simple wooden eco-friendly beach huts. It is fairly easy to get to being only a short distance from the mainland.
Koh Rong – Party time!
You cannot escape hearing about Koh Rong. Koh Rong is the party-goers dream island. From the minute you get off the boat (no airport on Koh Rong) you will be offered tickets for the “Police Beach Party”. After which you’ll be inundated with things like “Hip Hop Friday”, “Reggae Midweeker” and the ubiquitous “Sunset Booze Cruise”. Young backpackers mix with old “Heads” and party through the night (and day) before collapsing on a beach sunbed to recover.
If partying isn’t your thing, not to worry as there are also plenty of beautiful relaxed, quieter beaches and places to stay to enjoy away from the livelier areas.
The islands have accommodation for every budget and travel style, but book in advance as it gets busy in high season!
