Travel Report: Coconut Beach – Koh Rong, Cambodia.

December 2015. What a tough afternoon’s hiking it had been over from neighbouring Nature Beach in roasting afternoon temperatures! But finally the dense jungle trail brought us out into an opening to the entrance path that leads down to Coconut Beach. My initial thought upon entering the beach was that Wonderboy and I had missed […]

Travel Report: Hiking from Nature Beach to Coconut Beach, Koh Rong.

December 2015. After a day lazing about on Koh Rong, Wonderboy and I decided to go hiking from Nature Beach to Coconut Beach, a neighbouring resort. We’d heard that Coconut Beach is one of the island’s most impressive stretches of sand and home to a stunning bay of aquamarine water. The wild, unpaved trail starts […]

Travel Report: Nature Beach – Koh Rong, Cambodia.

December 2015. I think Wonderboy and I let out a collective sigh of relief as we stepped off our boat onto Nature Beach. There were clear waters, light golden sands and a distinct lack of people. Yup, we’d definitely done the right thing! Located twenty-six kilometres out from Cambodia’s mainland at the city of Sihanoukville, Nature […]

Travel Report: How To Get To Nature Beach, Koh Rong.

December 2015. It was quite the operation for Wonderboy and I to get to Koh Rong’s isolated Nature Beach. Sometimes, in order to reach those special places, you’ve gotta go that extra mile. We’d already travelled cross-country from Siem Reap to the coastal city of Sihanoukville. Our next step was to take one of the […]

Travel Report: Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum – Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

December 2015. It wasn’t all fun and games during my stay in Phnom Penh. Somewhere along the way my travel mate and I knew we had to stop by Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum to learn more about Cambodia’s dark history. The atrocities carried out here by The Khmer Rouge in the 1970s were unspeakable, and […]

Travel Report: Choeung Ek Killing Fields – Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

December 2015. After a couple of hours wandering around the unwaveringly grim Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, the last thing I felt like doing was going out to Choeung Ek Killing Fields. After all, this is the place where so many Cambodian prisoners were finally put out of their misery in the mid 1970s. But in […]

Travel Report: Battambang Bamboo Train, Cambodia.

December 2015. During my wanderings around Cambodia I met plenty of fellow travellers who didn’t even bother stopping in Battambang! I can’t help but feel they really missed out. The city itself has an excellent café and restaurant scene. And if you venture out, you’ve got the unmissable beauty and history of Phnom Sampeau. And […]

Travel Report: Phnom Sampeau – Battambang, Cambodia.

December 2015. The curious little Cambodian city of Battambang offers visitors a handful of unique sights that stand right up there with the best of the country’s must-see attractions. One of these is Phnom Sampeau, a massive limestone mountain 12 kilometres outside the centre. It’s a steep forty-five minute walk up to the top and […]

Travel Report: Kep Crab Market, Cambodia.

December 2015. What an oddly fascinating day we’d had wandering around the Cambodian ghost city of Kep. We’d strolled across tiny Kep Beach, admired the old flaky colonial villas and walked for hours down its neglected promenade. Along the way we exchanged greetings with sittin’ doin’ nothin locals and saw the dusty old amusement park […]
