The idyllic island of Koh Rong lies about 25km from Sihanoukville in the Gulf of Thailand. While the island has no real roads, tracks connect some of the western beaches to the main village, the island is not as deserted as some might like to think.
Situated in the Gulf of Thailand, just off the coast from Sihanoukville, lie the twin islands of Koh Rong and Koh Rong Samloem. Both islands have beautiful beaches, with palm trees stretching down from the rainforest hills to touch the sea shore. Koh Rong is popular with backpackers while Koh Rong Damloem is a popular day trip from Sihanoukville.
