The Cambodian Coast is turning into one of the most popular seaside destinations for tourists as many of the islands and islets along the 280-km of coasts along the Gulf of Thailand still offer a tranquil, laid-back lifestyle. However, infrastructure with hotels, restaurants and bars are rapidly popping out in Sihanoukville while seaside cities of Kep and Kampot try to retain their old-charm atmosphere…
The Cambodia Coast along the Gulf of Thailand stretches on over 280 km from the Thai border at Cham Yeam in the province of Koh Kong to the Vietnamese border in Ha Tien. Roads have improved in recent years but the ride is still very long as the road does not exactly follow the coastline. Large parts of the coast after passing the border from Thailand are actually covered by national parks. The first one is Peam Krasaop Wildlife Sanctuary, a tranquil mangrove forest followed by Boutor Sakom National Park, one of the largest of its kind in Cambodia.
The stretch of coast between Sihanoukville and the Vietnamese border is the most urbanised with the old seaside resorts of Kampot and Kep as well as the former royal hill station of Bokor, located in another national park.
Going there: The south of Cambodia is linked by flights from Sihanoukville International Airport to Phnom Penh and Siem Reap as well as regional and Chinese destinations. They are also busses as well as trains linking the coast with Phnom Penh.
