SNOOKYville, hidden gem of CAMBODJE.

1-30

Snookyville or better known as sihanoukville is truly a hidden gem of Cambodia. I honestly thought that no beaches in SE asia could be better than Koh Samui or Pandawa in Bali, wait till you step on OTRES. 🙂

If you are an admirer of the Sun, Sand & Sea than Sihanoukville is truly the place to go. Just 2 hours outside the capital of Cambodia, Phnom Penh lies a booming “party” town. Known for its night life the golden lions has definitely made its name heard to the eyes of the world. It is a city flanked by an almost uninterrupted string of beaches along its entire coastline and coastal marshlands bordering the Ream National Park in the East. Accompanied by a few thinly inhabited Islands.

Sihanoukville’s beaches are one of the city’s most valuable ecological and economic resource with varying degrees of commercial exploitation.

  1. OCHEUTUAL BEACH
  2. SERENDIPITY BEACH
  3. VICTORY BEACH
  4. SOKHA BEACH
  5. HAWAII BEACH
  6. TREASURE ISLAND BEACH
  7. INDEPENDENT BEACH
  8. HUN SEN BEACH
  9. OTRES BEACH (the beach my resort was at)

A total of 9 beaches, and otres beach made it to a list of top 10 beaches in asia.

The accommodations there was cheap and service was amazing. I opted to stay at in a resort that wasn’t that cheap but was the highlight of my trip. It was a french owned Hotel. Owners were very helpful and tentative and it really felt like paradise.

TAMU HOTEL. 5 FOOTSTEPS AWAY TO OTRES BEACH!

A number of thinly inhabited islands under Sihanoukville’s administration.

  • KOH RONG
  • KOH RONG SANLOEM
  • KOH KOANG KANG
  • KOH KOUN
  • KOH TUICH
  • KOH POS
  • KOH DEK KOUL
  • SONG SAA ISLAND

It takes only 50 bucks to hire a boat with a driver to visit these islands for a whole day trip. Having baguettes and a beer in hand on islands where there’s only you and your partner. hmmmm.. Well thats a sight to behold.
