Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year Beach / sunbathing

Customer Travel Tip: If arriving by bus be prepared to pay around $10 US from bus station to Otres beach with tuk tuk or taxi. We wish we had taken a tour operator up for a prearranged tuk tuk which would have been $6 US. It does take around 20 minutes.

Liked: Otres Beach is quiet with beautiful white sand and warm small rolling waves. Easy to swim and a prefect place to relax.

Disliked: We did not spend much time in Sihanoukville, so can only really comment on our stay at Otres Beach.

Beach / sunbathing

Customer Travel Tip: Research. Make sure you look into staying at Otres Beach instead.

Liked: Otres beach and the islands.

Disliked: The main part (Serendipity Bay) is gross. Phuket meets Kuta meets Spring Break. I would avoid unless you are into a dirty party scene and polluted, packed beach.

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year Beach / sunbathing City break

Customer Travel Tip: Travelling to the islands are the best part! My fave island was Koh Ta Kiev. I would also recommend staying no more than 2 consecutive nights unless you are staying at Otres Beach or you REALLY love to party a lot.

Liked: There were lots of food and drink options so you're never short of a place to eat or drink, it just depends on your budget. It's great for hanging out and meeting people before you go off to the islands.

Disliked: If you're not a party person or if you're looking to chill, it might not be the best place. I found that it was pretty crowded (then again, I did go right after New Year) and was more of a party town.

Customer Travel Tip: Avoid avoid avoid. Just pass through and get to koh rong.

Liked: Nice beach and cheap.

Disliked: It's dicey at hell around here. People getting mugged at night, robbery. Some really nasty locals. Don't trust any of them. I felt like they were all out to either rip me off or mug me. Got my phone stolen from my person while I slept in my dorm. I think the staff were in on it (sakal hostel) they knew it happens. I would avoid this place. Go to koh rong and skip this dump.
