The Island

The island is reachable from Sihanoukville in about 40 minutes by speed boat, usually running 3 times per day to and from the island. Sihanoukville has an International Airport with flights from Siem Reap and can be accessed also by road ( 215 Km) from the capital Phnom Penh, via comfortable buses or taxi. The island of Koh Rong Samloem has just one village, Maapai Bei, which is inhabited by less than 200 fishermen with their families.
