To the south of the archipelago of Koh Sdach meet these two large adjacent islands. In addition to the very similar names (which can create some confusion), they have other things in common.

Both islands are quite extensive, with dense forests in the hinterland populated by an incredible variety of birds and other animals, including some endemic species. In addition, both have fabulous beaches, able to compete with those of Thailand.

The largest island, Koh Rong, is the only island in southern Cambodia, which looks set to become something more than just a retreat away from civilization. Koh Tui, the village located to its south-east end, home to an increasingly wide range of accommodation, as well as a bar where you can find people even until midnight.

Since the end of 2000 Koh Rong is the focus of a development plan that aims to transform it in the Cambodian version of the Thai island of Koh Samui, and involves the construction of an asphalt ring road, dozens of new resort and an airport. These projects, however, are still struggling to materialize and for Koh Rong moment remains a haven for backpackers.

Even Koh Rong Samloem is taking off slowly. 10 km long island in a horseshoe shape, which encloses the Bay on the eastern side of the Saracens, has three very distant accommodation between them, each of which must be reached by a vehicle of its own.

The old colonial road network is overgrown, but on the island there are good fishing opportunities, snorkelling and short excursions. The extraordinary wildlife ranging from monkeys to blacks squirrels, from sea eagles in salamanders, lizards and iguanas of impressive dimensions. The Baia dei Saraceni also makes a dramatic backdrop to the full moon parties Beach Resort, organized once a month and accessible with the Party Boat sailing from Sihanoukville.
