Lapped by the warm emerald waters of the Gulf of Thailand, Cambodia's coastline offers something very different from the more built up beaches often found in neighbouring countries. This region of Southeast Asia has mainly avoided mass tourism, it's an undeveloped gem. Home to glistening beaches, virgin rainforests and white sandy coastline it's an ideal respite after Siem Reap's dusty temples.
What's more it's home to some captivating historic towns and enchanting fishing villages that offer more than lazy days. We recommend Knai Bang Chat in Kep for its beaches and sumptuous fresh crab or Song Saa on the island of Koh Rong for unabashed island luxury. This part of western Cambodia is the place to go for those really wanting to get away from it all.
