Mar 1, 2017 - 4 days in Paradise

Today we arrived to southern Cambodia,to an island called, Koh Rong. We decided not to stay at the main part as it is known as a party place and we weren't interested, so we came to the East part which is called, Nature Beach. Beautiful white sand,very warm blue water and the best,we barely have any company. It's probably about 16-20 of us. This place has tents and bungalows. We are sleeping in a tent on a stilt. I can't write you much as the wifi isn't so good,being on an island so I'll write all these days when I'm back to...

Feb 13, 2017 - Sleeping in hammocks in the jungle

The journey to Koh Kong the next morning was an easy one -up early and picked up on time (shock horror) we were taken to the main ‘bus terminal’ about 40mins out of town. The crowd on the mini bus were a little older – stretching from the English guy sitting next to me (30 – my first interaction with a ‘digital nomad’) to the grandfather of 2 (estimated to be ~70). Everyone was having a lovely chat as we made out way to the bus change – some people heading to Phnom Penh, others to Sionkville and a few to Koh Kong. We continued on our way...

Jan 12, 2016 - It's a Holiday in Cambodia! Paradise found

Welcome to the absolute best place on earth. I really don't want to tell you about it because I want to keep it the quiet, isolated paradise that it is. I will say the boat trip out and back continued to be challenges; on the bigger boat out I got sick (esp. when we stopped to help a boat that had stalled) and on the smaller boat back I got soaked, along with our things. Didn't matter a whit. The place is worth every hardship and then some. Snorkeling was excellent; the coral was a little lacking but we saw huge schools of all kinds of...

Jan 26, 2012 - A deserted beach...or not....a shock in paradise

Nancy mentioned our visit to the wild, long beautiful Koh Rong 18km of crescent golden sand west beach. We were the only travellers there, only people we could see for a couple of hours, and then we met a couple of Cambodian fishers. Appearances! To imagine that two teams of Survivor (or a wanna be show...they would not tell us...) contestants were living in the jungle 200 metres away! Surreal. They have no contact, thinking they are completely isolated, but just outside their bubble, here we are seeking the most secluded beach we can...

Feb 4, 2010 - Westward Ho

Time to move on out of this place. Plan to spend a day or two at Koh Kong near the Thai border before we cross over. Supposed to be a quieter place, we'll see. Sihanoukville was quite an experience in many ways. We had expected the typical beach scene with hotels, bars and ubiquitous tourists - it was all of that but there was a very sinister feel to it. Hotels and bars owned by expats, mostly Russians who navigated their $100,000 Hummers around road hazards such as legless beggars and starving children and had a very menacing aura (no...

Jan 22, 2009 - Phnom Penh

By Mette Før vi tog afsted, læste både Jørgen og jeg, "first they killed my father", en dirrende beretning om hvordan det var at være barn i Khmer Rouge tiden. Her var også en beskrivelse af, hvordan Phnom Penh i "year zero" på et par dage bliver tømt for mennesker, og disse millioner af folk derefter i lange kolonner ad landevejen (som dengang var en grusvej) bliver ført ud på landet til arbejdslejre. Siden da har vi læst, at 1 ud af 4 cambodianere blev dræbt/skudt/døde af sult i Pol Pot tiden, og at ikke en eneste familie var uberørt. En...

Jan 17, 2009 - Crossing borders

By Mette Our itenary Today we left Thailand in order to go to Cambodia. Yes, this means that we have changed the itenary, but Ko Chang was so close to Cambodia, that it seemed to make more sense this way. Our plans from here is to then go to Phnom Penh and from there to Siam Reap to se among other things Angkor Wat. Then we want to bead back to Thailand to catch a train to Northern Thailand, cross into Laos and Luang Prabang - and go to Vietnam from there.... Well, let's see what happens. It also depends on where we decide to spend the...

Jan 16, 2009 - Taste of Thailand

By Mette Vi boede 6 dage på et stort, fint hotel i Bangkok, langt væk fra larm og ballede, men også isoleret fra det daglige liv. Oveni købet var alle undtagen Pernille syge et par dage. Derefter tog vi til Ko Chang, hvor vi boede i en hytte i et typisk turistområde. Og som turistområde er der ikke meget "lokalt" over hverken mad eller omgivelser. Thai'ere er her nogle, man møder på grønsagsmarkedet og bag ved disken på restauranterne. I Bangkok spiste vi ikke så forfærdelig meget, og det meste af det vi satte til livs, kom fra et...

Mar 15, 2008 - Koh Kood

It was sad to say goodbye to my parents in Bangkok but found it much easier knowing that I would be seeing them probably within a months time. I took off on my own to a town called Trat that is the gateway town to reach some beach islands before heading over into Cambodia. I figured I would be hitting up the touristy southern Thailand islands when I returned from Cambodia and was hoping to find an island that wasn't too expensive or crowded. When I got off the public bus I asked the only other foreigners if they were wanting to share a...

Mar 10, 2008 - Koh Chang

10 – 15 March. The stay on Koh Chang did not really become what I expected. It started well, with a hired motorbike to overcome the long distances on the island. But the weather was very mixed, most of the time it was cloudy, some time sunshine other times it was raining. Not so many photos were taken.
