The past 5 months have FLOWN by because travels, projects, starting a new company (A.M.CLUB) and life BUT I’ve been looking forward to sharing my experiences in Cambodia with you for a few months now and so here it is, finally.

Cambodia is a destination that needs to be on your bucket list. I recommend you go for about 2 weeks and I’d go quickly before the beaches get too commercialized. Read on below for my recommendations, and experiences in Cambodia.

Angkor Wat

A temple complex in Siem Reap. This is the largest religious monument in the world.

You can hire a driver for the day in Angkor for about $35 – definitely recommend this over anything else – it’s extremely hot and they don’t have Uber to save your life. Plus you want to hang out with locals – especially if traveling alone.

Take a short flight from Siem Reap and fly into Sihanoukville – the coast of Cambodia.

OTRES II BEACH

This is where I recommend you stay for a few days before going to explore the other islands – the White Boutique Hotel on Otres 2 Beach. (Yes there is an Otres I and Otres II Beach – make sure you are clear with your cab driver because they are not walking distance from each other). Many other resorts are under construction farther away from the ocean but honestly you want a hotel on the beach and this is the best one by far. The only bummer is that they don’t have room service or a mini fridge so make sure to stock up on snacks before you smoke weed with the locals, take a nap, wake up at 9 PM, realize that have no munchies, go looking for food and almost get attacked by a dog on the unlit street. These things happen. Good thing I have semi long legs. Don’t do as I did. Prepare.

This beach is more for the backpackers who like hostels and being accompanied by young people. They had some bungalows that looked cute but didn’t stay here because I needed air conditioning – SO hot.

KOH RONG SAMLOEM

This island is Heaven on Earth. Take a boat from Otres Beach and stay at Koh Rong Samloem in a chill bungalow for a week or so. Go before it gets commercialized though – a local told me that an airport was going to be built soon on the island so go before this oasis is ruined.
