Everything you need to know.

While you can spend all your time laying on the beach, there are a few other places to go, things to see, and activities.

SihanoukVille
is located on the coast of Cambodia, about halfway between Thailand and Vietnam, on the Bay of Thailand.  A spread out tourist town for both foreigners and local people from all over the country.  Three sides of the town are bordered by tropical beaches and islands.  Filled with empty beaches, crowded beaches, seafood, restaurants, bars, Buddhist Temples, casinos, hotels, and more beaches.  At several hundred places, English is spoken; and many French speakers are here as well.  About 30 other languages are spoken at various guesthouses and restaurants.

Prime Time
in SihanoukVille is between the beginning of November and the end of February.   Cooler weather, sunny most days, and not a worry in the world.  Winter in SihanoukVille is the best!  Low season is between the beginning of July until the end of October.  Lots of rain.  Though thanks to global warming, we get many beautiful sunny days as well.  March to June starts to get hotter and more humid, but not too much rain. October sees a little rain everyday, which cools things down.  Also, during many Cambodian holidays, the town fills up as well.

Or take a 4 hour bus or car from Koh Kong, at the South-Eastern Thai border near Trat, to SihanoukVille.

From Vietnam, just fly from Saigon or Hanoi to Phnom Penh and then by bus or taxi.  Or take a bus, boat, or car across the Cambodia/Vietnam border to
