What are waiting for you?
What You Can See And Do When Coming Koh Rong Samloem
Swim In The Waterfall
If you visit Koh Rong Samloem from November to April, you may not have a chance to participate in this activity. It’s the dry season here with a low rain rate. Consequently, the waterfall is really dry or has shallow water. The best time is from May to August when the weather is mild with a favorable rain rate. Once September and October come, it might rain all day long, which raises the water level of the waterfall to the peak. It’s dangerous to go swimming in this period.
You have to cross the pristine jungle to reach the waterfall. Along the way, you will find the beauty of nature inside. Imagine swimming in the refreshing water on a boiling day; how fantastic it is! You can bring some food and water for the walk; then, enjoy nice cold drinks and beautiful local dishes in a Khmer restaurant here.
Visit Lazy Beach
Lazy Beach is voted one of the most beautiful beaches in the world by National Geographic. The beach keeps its original beauty with silky sand, pristine and sparkling water, and a superb view of enveloping mountains. It’s comprehensible that Lazy Beach has become a glaring pearl of tourism in this South East country, which appeals to millions of tourists annually. However, it’s not easy to visit Lazy Beach. The tour starts from Saracen Bay with boats; then, tourists must go trekking for another 40 minutes in the forest to depart the paradise place. Bring necessities and equip a pair of comfortable training shoes.
Lazy Beach Resort is the one and only hospitality here. While other resorts offer the greatest amenities with Wi-Fi or convenient stores, this resort doesn’t. It’s an identical feature to bring the most natural-friendly tour. We bet you are interested in the cost too. It’s $30 only for a night’s stay. We highly recommend you spend a night here. You will have a chance to admire the mesmerizing sunset.
Snorkel And Scuba Dive
Koh Rong Samloen is home to diverse sea animals; as a result, snorkeling and scuba diving are two popular tourist activities when visiting this beautiful island. Depending on your choice, these activities can be inclusive or exclusive in the Campuchia tour package. If you haven’t registered yet, you can buy a snorkeling and scuba diving tour from any local tourism center. You will travel in a canoe to the most fantastic ocean area and start to admire the sight of corals, horsefish, colorful fish, and many other sea animals. The water is so pristine and clean that you can see it through without diving down.
The tour usually begins at 1 p.m and ends at 7 p.m. Besides the two activities above, the tour also offers you to go fishing and join a BBQ party. If you are lucky, you can watch the plankton glowing. Those who want to take a short tour of the surrounding island or enjoy the fresh breeze for longer can only pay an extra $70.
Take An Island Tour
An island tour will take a day to visit all the pretty places, including islands in the ecosystem around Koh Rong Samloem, amazing beaches, beautiful resorts, and peaceful fishing villages. So, it would be best if you made a careful plan for it. It’s not only fun but only affordable. It costs you $100 for 10 people to travel by boat for a day! You can also choose to enjoy the pristine beauty of Koh Rong Samloem and travel by bicycle, motorbike, or taxi.
Some to-go places are Saracen Bay, Lazy Beach, and Sunset Beach. They are famous and highly recommended, attracting many tourists. If you want to avoid the crowd and enjoy private peace, you should visit small fishing villages in M’Pai Bay or Phumi Kang Khnong. Early morning is the best time to admire the result of night fishing and the breathtaking sunrise. Besides, you can turn it into a food tour with scrumptious Khmer dishes, such as fish amok, samlor machu trey, nom banh chok, etc.
Visit The Lighthouse
Far from the beaches and waterfall, the lighthouse stands. Here, you can find a panoramic and fantastic view of the island. However, it’s not favorable for a relaxing family trip. It requires a long walking trip to reach this place. Hence, it’d be a challenge for the young. In addition, it would be best to spend a day on this activity. While walking, you can enjoy the fresh air, cool breeze, and rustling leaves in the middle of the jungle. Like the Lazy Beach tour, you should equip yourself with necessities and comfortable shoes. However, no restaurant or resort is nearby, so food and drinks are a must!
If you are planning a short trip to Cambodia, we recommend visiting this South East country from May to August. You can take a quick tour around the island or visit its ecosystem of surrounding islands by boat. If you are an adventurer, join our Cambodia tour package to the Lazy Beach and the lighthouse. Are you a swimming lover? It’s time for snorkeling and scuba diving. You can also enjoy the freshwater of the waterfall in the middle of the jungle. Don’t forget to try Khmer food when visiting Cambodia. We will introduce you in another article. Let’s move on!
