What to prepare
– USD (all exchange to USD, mainly retail 1 USD, 5 USD, 10 USD for easy, especially Cambodia does not use 2 USD). Estimate the amount of money you have to spend and change all the cash, do not expect the hotel will give you a card swipe. Even the electricity is weak.
– Balo (not suitcase)
– Sunscreen, anti-mosquito pills.
– Sports shoes (if you intend to go to Koh Rong and play high point).
– Snacks (if you come and go straight to the KRS, take food from home, if you visit Sihanoukville with KR in advance it is not necessary.) There are many convenient stores for you to choose. ).
– Camera and camera charger
– Best friends.
– Car Booking.
Ho Chi Minh City – Ha Tien: We booked Kumho tickets, requesting pick up at the office in Le Hong Phong street, from there will have the car transfer to Western bus station. Ha Tien will also have a transfer station to the place you need to go. Ticket price: 168,000 VND per person.
Ha Tien – Sihanoukville: I call the reservation of Vietcamthai, and always buy tickets to the island there. Bus fare: $ 13 per person. In the afternoon also put the two companies on.
– Train ticket booking: Always buy at Vietcamthai office. I chose the Speed Ferry Cambodia, which ran more than an hour to the island. Ticket price: the US $ 20 per person (roundtrip). Tickets are 2-way, at tear 1, and keep a copy to confirm the return date.

Day 1: Move and move
We flew 8h40 to Saigon, luggage at the house of acquaintances, then contact the car company to book tickets and then go eat and buy more items.
We traveled 22 hours from Saigon to Ha Tien is about 5h, then to the transfer of the carrier, told them to give Vietcamthai office. There, pay and pick up tickets, then there are vehicles to the gate and procedures.
Day 2: Exit
When you exit, there will be bus pick up, go about 3 hours to Sihanoukville. To stay healthy, we decided to stay here one night instead of going to the island.
In the evening, the group goes tuk-tuk to the central area, where there are 2 lions. There are quite a few restaurants, just look at the menu to see if it is reasonable to eat. There are also many mini-marts, full of necessities at reasonable prices.
In the morning, we check out and catch a tuk-tuk to the pier. We travel 9h from Sihanoukville to Koh Rong, arrive at about 10h30. Ashore, I always buy high ticket and train tickets from KR to KRS.
High point ticket: $ 25 per person.
Kok Rong – Kok Rong Samloem fare: USD 7 per person.
Despite having been warned about carrying a bag instead of a suitcase, the girl, much to the chagrin, decided to keep the suitcase, along with a 4 kg float and a bag of food. The hotel is near the beach. Group pulls the suitcase in the sand to the hotel want to lose the limbs.
A beachfront bungalow for 4 people at Paradise Bungalow. Spacious 4-bedroom, with an open-air bathroom, front balcony with hammock and cushion for a sea view. Wi-Fi is only available in the reception area.
In the afternoon, we go out to eat and change clothes and shoes to a high point, then go to the sea struggling.
The high point is a challenging adventure game, featuring 22 stages with increasing difficulty. There will be some basic routes such as suspension bridge, zipline, etc. After all, you will reach the top and see the entire island of Koh Rong, then slide the zip line. more than 400 meters to the destination, very nice.
At night, we stroll out to the harbor area, looking for a reasonable restaurant to eat. There are both Western and Thai, so it is not too difficult to choose. Eating finished in the room, electricity that fluttered not enough light that playing cards, only to sit out playing with chatting only.
Day 4: Take a trip to paradise
In the morning, remember to get up early to see the dawn. The boat will take you to Koh Rong Samloem at 10 am. Baby, go for a long time, take a new hour to arrive, but in return for us to enjoy the scenery.
Note: Going from Koh Rong – Koh Rong Samloem will be a small boat ride. There are two types, Speed Ferry Cambodia is yellow and Speed Ferry Cambodia Island is a blue train. If your hotel has a canoe pick up service, when you buy tickets, please remember to see what color ship to confirm with the hotel.
Arrive at Koh Rong Samloem, remember to confirm your date back to Sihanoukville. If not, the return date will be 3 hours before confirmation.
Welcome to paradise, blue sea, and golden yellow sun.
I rent a room at The One resort. This is the only hotel with swimming pool, air conditioning and full electricity (sometimes also enjoy a little). The staff is very cute, when you are new you will be invited orange juice, impression very good.
The time here is not much, I just play on the main beach, then resort. Also, you can walk through the forest, take about an hour to another beach.
Day 5: Return to Saigon
We contacted Vietcamthai for them to pick up and buy tickets for themselves. The return ticket is $ 12 per person and 168,000 per person ticket to Saigon.
We take the train 10h from Koh Rong Samloem to Sihanoukville and travel 13h Vietcamthai back to Ha Tien. You calculate the time for a reason. After 17:00, the gate will close, and you will have to stay in Cambodia for one night until the next morning.
Hope you enjoy your time in Cambodia!
