Koh Rong and Koh Rong Samloem are Cambodia’s two most popular island destinations located just off the coast of Sihanoukville.
If you have never visited the islands off the coast of Cambodia then you are in for the treat. This is like taking a timewarp back to Thaland in the 1990s.
With accommodation options for all budgets – from backpackers to luxury resorts – you are bound to find something to tick your box.
What is also guaranteed is a laidback lifestyle, beautiful white sand beaches, turquoise waters, and the odd party or two, if that is what you are seeking. You don’t have to eat a lotus, but you might be tempted to stay longer.
This is our guide of things to do in Koh Rong and Koh Rong Samloem.

Where to Go after Enjoying Koh Rong and Koh Rong Samloem Islands?
From the islands the first place to go is the only place the ferry will take you - the port city of Sihanoukville. This might be your destination or just a place to switch mode of transport before embarking on a further journey. We suggest the latter.
Heading east along the coast will bring you past the spectacular Bokor Mountain to the popular but peaceful, riverside town of Kampot. We guarantee you will want to linger here for a while, and explore the pepper plantations. Kampot Pepper is the finest in the world.
A little further east lies the small but just as lovely province of Kep, famed for its seafood and pepper crab, which you can enjoy at the Kep Crab Market. If you wish to, you can then continue your journey to Vietnam crossing from Prek Chak to Hà Tiên.
But that would be a pity as there is so much to enjoy in Cambodia. Turn west instead of east and you can pass through the Wild Cardamom mountains towards Koh Kong.
Head inland along Highway 4 and you will reach Phnom Penh, one of the most intriguing capitals in Southeast Asia.
