Despite not being the best country of islands, Cambodia owns many wonderful ones with which visitors cannot help falling in love. Below are the best five islands suggested by the Indochina Voyages Team.
1. Koh Rong – Party Island
What does a party island need? Dense jungle, gorgeous white sand beaches, bungalows, non-stop music with a live DJ and a 24-hour bar with free happy hours. Yes, Koh Rong is the place you are searching for. Let’s imagine one perfect day for you there: Get up seeing beautiful coast, go hiking, trekking or running, enjoy happy hours at a bar, sunbathe, and be ready to party all night. Did someone say party? Go for it!
2. Koh Rong Sanloem – Relax island
Unlike Koh Rong Island, there is not much to do in Koh Rong Sanloem Island. That is the reason why it is the best place to relax. Just go paddle-boarding, snorkeling, or even relaxing under a palm listening to music.
3. Song Saa – Luxurious Island
The name means ‘sweetheart’ in Khmer. This Cambodia’s luxurious island offers you villa prices topping $3,000 per night. You get what you pay for; the resort of 27 rooms gives you the very exclusive island experiences: a bottle of champagne at check-in, the transfers from shore, gourmet meals, well-stocked mini-bar and even free international calls from the villa which are all included in the price.
4. Koh Thmei – Nature watching island
Since Koh Thmei Island is a part of Ream National Park, you can watch the wild from the inside. Is not it the best view to do that? You will become a guest of a house of monkeys, civets, lizards, more than 100 different species of birds. More interestingly, your naked eyes may see several threatened species, including the fish cat, a wetland feline that makes its home near streams and mangrove forest. Besides, you can enjoy your holidays hiking, bird watching, snorkeling or taking the two-people sea kayak out for a spin. Even your kids will surely love this place as they raise ponies that children can ride.
5. Koh Totang – unplugging island
Leave everything behind and free yourself to literally disconnect from the regular life in Koh Totang. No internet connection means no working emails and no international disaster news. This is a very environmental friendly island with solar energy and saved rainwater. If you are surfing under stresses, this is a perfect place to refresh yourself.
What are you searching for? A place to party all night, to relax, to spend lots of money, to enjoy the nature or just a place to hide from the modern life? Well, Cambodia can provide you all.
