Where to stay in Sihanoukville

Chinese New Year is just around the corner.  People living in the cities are planning trips to the beach.  In Cambodia, there are four coastal provinces — Sihanoukville (or Kompong Som), Kampot, Kep and Koh Kong; though Sihanoukville is the most popular destination of the four.  Located only 250 km or 3 1/2 hours drive from Phnom Penh city, Sihanoukville is an easy day trip to do.

Having the longest coastal beach in Cambodia, most popular beaches in Sihanoukville are Sokha beach, Ochheuteal beach, Independence beach, Victory beach, Otres beach, and Ream National Park beach.

Accommodation in Sihanoukville varies from high-end beach resort to bungalow style.  Here are our top choices of accommodation for 2013.

Resort and Hotel:
1. Sokha Beach and Resort
2. Independence Hotel and Resort
3. Holiday Palace and Resort

Boutique Hotel:

Koh Rong excursion

Recently we made an excursion to Koh Rong, a remote island off the coast of Sihanoukville province.  The island is located about 2 to 3 hours boat ride from the coast.  Getting to the island can be challenging but it can be easily arranged by a travel agency.

Boat to Koh Rong island

Our trip began with a bus ride from Phnom Penh to Sihanoukville.  We decided to take the Soriya bus, but there is a number of other bus operators that provide transfers from Phnom Penh to Sihanoukville. Once arrived to the bus station in Sihanoukville, there were plenty of remork and moto-taxi that could easily take you to any hostel or hotel in the city.  The bus price was reasonable but the remork price for foreigners was much higher than for the locals.

Happy King’s Birthday and a visit to Koh Rong

This 2012 year, the King’s Birthday falls under May 13th weekend.  For many Cambodians, this is the month for a family trip to the beach or to the country side.

IRG Go brings you more than a regular family vacation by offering you a trip to Koh Rong island.  This untouched territory reveals the most exclusive beach in Cambodia.   This island is not well known to many tourists, hence it is still known to just local people.   An overnight stay on the island will detox you from all that city stress and rejuvenate your energy for years to come.

Please contact us at 023 99 57 25 or email us at [email protected] to learn more about this excursion.
