Dining and Drinking on Koh Rong
Most of the island is fairly remote with few options outside your guesthouse様uckily, most of the guest houses on Koh Rong (map) have surprisingly tasty fare and offer both Khmer and Western dishes.

Busy Koh Toch Beach (map) offers the greatest range of dining options. The variety of choices is astonishing, and several restaurants also offer inexpensive but uninspired barbeques on the beach every night. For more local eating options, in Koh Toch village there are several Cambodian-owned restaurants offering simple but delicious dishes that make for a simple, economical breakfast, such as bai sach chrouk (pork and rice) and kuy teav (noodle soup) as well as the ubiquitous fried rice and noodles.

Evenings, you'll find happy hour and drink specials at most places, with beer prices not substantially higher than on the mainland.

Monkey Island
Monkey Island has built a reputation for offering the same hearty fare on Koh Rong at the same low prices that their parent, Monkey Republic, offers on the mainland. Feast on English-style pub grub, Khmer favorites and excellent Thai curries. Drinks are cheap and plentiful, with 2-for-1 cocktails during the popular nightly happy hour.

Koh Ta Kiev
Koh Ta Kiev is a lovely island with come-and-go beachside camping and simple treehouse accommodation. Lovely yellow sand beaches dotted with pine trees offer the perfect spot for reading and relaxing. The kind of 素orgotten island that will not last in the face of expanding development. The island also offers many bird-watching and snorkeling opportunities.

Ten103 Treehouse Bay
On Koh Ta Kiev, it's worth a visit to Ten103 Treehouse Bay to try their Mediterranean-inspired fare and fresh-baked bread. The American owner, Joel, worked as a chef for many years in Italy, and he puts his training to good use on Koh ta Kiev. There's also an absinthe distillery on site, where visitors can taste SYN brand organic absinthe.

Islands Map


The Islands... A side

A side destination from Sihanoukville just a couple of years ago, the islands of the Koh Rong (map) Archipelago have become destinations in their own right. Set in the turquoise-blue waters of the Gulf of Thailand 30-50 minutes off the Sihanoukville coast, the two big islands of Koh Rong and Koh Rong Sanloem are the most popular. Both have yet to see major development and though there are bungalows and resorts dotting most of the beaches, the islands still maintain a laid-back rustic charm not easily found elsewhere. The smaller islands of the archipelago like Koh Thmei and Koh Ta Kiev are completely undeveloped and offer a true Robinson Crusoe atmosphere. Most of the islands are slated for major development, so if you're looking to appreciate the rustic atmosphere, go sooner rather than later.
