Day 9

Koh Rong Samloem

The beach is sending us an early morning wake up call this morning as we journey down to our favorite island paradise. Arguably one of the most beautiful spots of the whole trip; we spend two days on the gorgeous Koh Rong Samloem staying at our favourite backpacker resort in its own private bay. Spend your time here as you wish; relax on the beach, play on the inflatables, chill on the sea hammocks & swings, or take out a kayak & explore.

Day 10

Koh Rong Adventure

Aaaaaahhhhhhh. Today’s all about getting your chill on. Have a lie in, stroll along the warm sands, seek out a tasty local breakfast from a local vendor. No matter what you fancy doing, this time’s all yours. Island hop along the emerald waters in a traditional Cambodian longtail boat, soak up the rays, top up your tan, and have a pop at a traditional way of fishing. Show off your belly flopping skills, or find your inner Khmer-maid (see what we did there?), snorkel over the vibrant coral, and check out the various marine life that call the warm waters home. Then join the rest of us on a secluded beach for a delicious BBQ lunch. After you’ve eaten, head back to the island, chill, have a few cold beers, cut a few shapes, burst into song and dance and perform every song from the Greatest Showman for your Tru pals. Whatever you fancy. This is your final day on this incredible island, so savour every. Last. Minute.
