One of the biggest draws of South Cambodia is its white sand beaches, kilometres of them! You can party the night away at the wild beach parties of Sihanoukville or find yourself a completely secluded beach on a tropical island. If you're looking for the latter, there are some stunning paradise beaches. Get here quick though, as most islands are earmarked for development and for some, it's already started.
The diving here doesn’t quite match up to the likes of the Lower Gulf of Thailand, other than that, it’s difficult to think of a reason not to find somewhere worth a visit in South Cambodia!
If you want to experience what some of the beaches in Thailand used to be like, try Lonely Beach on Koh Rong island. If you like something besides relaxing or partying there's plenty of activities to keep you entertained; diving, snorkelling, trekking, kitesurfing, climbing, watersports... There are also some great ways to experience the local culture, with Kep and Kampot offering a slice of rural Cambodian life. The roads are reasonably quiet, so lend themselves to renting a motorbike to explore the surrounding area; the road winding up to the abandoned hill station through Bokor National Park forest is a superb example of a great bike ride.
