How to get to Sihanoukville, Beach Islands & Koh Rong?

Route Map to SihanoukvillePublic speed ferries and tickets can be booked through local travel agencies when you arrive in the town but to get free hassle, you should make a reservation in advance to avoid full booking which ruins your travel plan. There are a few speed ferry operators run daily speed ferries to those islands with different departure times (45 minutes to 1 hour) in the morning, at noon and in the late afternoon depends on which island you travel to. Be aware that your booked speed ferry ticket is round trip and you have to inform your speed ferry operator one day in advance about which return departure you decided to take. To do this, you can certainly ask for a favor from your hotel’s receptionist. If you’re staying at Russei or Song Saa Private Islands, the hotels will provide their customers a round trip of their own charter speed boat.

When is the best time to visit Sihanoukville?

In tropical monsoon, Sihanoukville and its beautiful islands warmly welcome tourists all year round but the perfect season is from November to February when climate is sunny, warm and cold. The sea level and the beauty of the seaside will vary from March to October, the lack of sea water in the hot season makes beaches a bit dry up overlooking bare trees while the raining season from July to middle October may cause the flood to those islands and frequently reschedule boat departures if the weather is bad and has big waves but it’s entirely okay for those who stay at the mainland.

Christmas, New Year Eve, Cambodian Water Festival and Songkran New Year are the hassle periods or Peak Season, most of services and accommodations are pre-booked up quickly. This warns you that you have to book most of services at least two month ahead if you plan to spend your summer vacations during those times and you should note that all prices will also increase between 20-30% on top of regular prices of the high season. Unfortunately, train, bus and speed boat tickets are not available for reservation in advance for a longer time.

Climate degree varies from different periods:
• Hot Season 27-36°C – March to May
• Rainy Season 24-35°C – June to October
• Cool Season 20-29°C – November to February
