Kampot Sunset Cruise

Posted By on May 26, 2016

We  went on the Kampot sunset cruise, the boat sailed upriver for an hour while the sun set over Phnom Bokor to our left.

Everyone on board fell silent and watched.   As day turned to night we sailed back down river, the captain turned the lights off, and put the boat into the bank, so that we could see the fire flies; lighting up the trees like...

From my seat on the speed ferry approaching Koh Rong all I can see are palm trees, white sand, vibrant bars and the bluest of blue water. My nerves immediately kick in as I carefully climb off the ferry onto a pier that appears to be crumbling beneath my feet but once I am safely on land, I look around and am delighted to be part of this tropical paradise.

Ko Ta Kiev Island

Posted By on Apr 15, 2015

We’re in Sihanoukville (Cambodia) and loving it! Yesterday we went on a trip to Ko Ta Kiev Island. It’s a 30 minute boat ride from the mainland. The trip cost $15 each and included breakfast, lunch and a tuk tuk to the boat. The tuk tuk picked us up at 8am and took us to a bar on Otres beach where breakfast was provided, fried egg sandwiches and coffee – lovely! Hayley used the toilet and returned almost traumatised...
