It is a beautiful island for sure. Most of the accommodation was a bit dumpy in my opinion. Why does this matter? Well, because the sand flies are terrible there so a bungalow with big holes in it is torture. You will get eaten alive. The water has that stuff in it that glows at night, I forget what it is called but it is pretty cool.

I haven't been to Koh Phanghan so can't compare it. I would say it is a nice island as far as Cambodia goes but an average island if compared to Thailand.

Younger backpacker crowd centered in one beach. Three days was enough for me but if you like to sit on a beach and smoke weed all day it might be for you.

I found that Otres offered much of what Koh Rong offered but more convenient. The water on Koh Rong is a little cooler and more refreshing

I would visit Koh Rong if I am in the area for sure but wouldn't go a long way to go to that area in the first place. If that makes sense.

^ you are full of shit. I've just returned from Koh Rong and tha beaches beat any I've seen in Thailand. The only place I've seen that would compare for beaches would be Koh Lipe.

Ko Lipe of present day, or Ko Lipe of 15 years ago?

Because present day....not so good. Actually pretty sad to see that coral reef completely dead in such a short time span. Never seen any coral so beautiful in my life that first visit. 10 years later....all crumbled, destroyed, and dying.

They replaced it with Germans, mostly.

@crocman - post pix of your cambo trip, pretty please?

Based on what I've seen of Koh Lipe in SP's thread, it reminds me of Boracay.

^Its not worth a visit anymore. 15 years ago though...paradise.

Never seen a place go downhill so fast. Tourism run totally amok...the cost of the place now is just insane in addition to the island being totally trashed.

Koh Lipe has been destroyed by mass tourism. Like Phi Phi is has rubbish everywhere and the place stinks of sewage.
Snooky is a shit hole as well but you can get away with openly smoking weed.You wont in Thailand.

@crocman - Taiwan was great, very scenic. Cities, countryside, mountains, beaches, all good. I've started putting up pics in the China travel subforum, haven't uploaded all pics. Our meet up in PP didn't happen, due to my change of plans. Maybe I'll still get to drink a San Mig lite with you, in future. Lol. Cheers & I look forward to your photos!

Got to agree Gary, Sookyville is an absolute tip. We stayed up the road at Otres2 which was terrific. Stayed at a nice resort and even the backpacker joints seemed fairly well looked after.

Pissed myself laughing at all the gap year eurotrash wading out in the water to smoke a skinny spliff where they wouldn't be seen. Lol

At least in Koh Lipe they have a clean up campaign and policy in place. They even include the tourists. Every Monday they have a big clean up and the volunteers get a free t-shirt and lunch. At least they are being pro-active to some extent.
