    LOVE Cambodia! the people are so nice and the food is afforable. It’s these 3rd world countries that have the best sort of adventures:)

      The food in Cambodia was delicious– and so inexpensive! Jake enjoyed fresh seafood dinners on the beach in Sihanoukville for US$5!

    Thank for this lovely note. I totally agree that beggars is a big concern for the tourist. We also run a discussion to see should we give them the money of not. Most of us seems to have the same feeling that giving money to them will make them beg for life.

    It would not help them much to have a better live. We should ignore them. And the best way to help them is to donate to the NGO or any development projects etc.

    Recently there’s a big project to build en entire city for those who have been moved from the construction sites.

    There are a lot of good way to help Cambodian people. Thank again for the review of Sihanoukville beach.

    Looks great! I have been to Cambodia several times, but not yet made it to Sihanoukville. This is probably the best set of photos I have seen, showing the “true” side of Sihanoukville. That deserted beach makes me want to get on a plane, right now, and check it out before it’s developed!

    Definitely a shame, but, you can’t stop “progress” right?

    I debated going here when I was in Cambodia but I couldn’t get read on it. I was wondering if it got too developed or if there were more things to do than just hang out on the beach.

    Were there fun activities to do or interesting spots for sightseeing?

    Lomherkay Beach is also known s “Hawaii Beach, King’s Beach, South Channel Beach.” Like the other major beaches, Lomherkay Beach is lined with umbrellas and chairs and little beach shack bars and seafood restaurants, though no where near as densely as Ochheuteal.
