Discover boutique hotels in Koh Russey, Cambodia
When to go
The most popular time to visit is the dry season (November to May), with the cooler temperatures during the first three months attracting the most travellers. The south coast gets drenched by monsoons in the wet season (June to October), but this is when the landscape is at its most lush and green.
PlanesThe closest airport is Sihanoukville (there are direct flights between Siem Reap and Sihanoukville daily; the flight time is 45 minutes). You can also land 200 kilometres away in Phnom Penh.
BoatsRegular boat shuttles cross the waters to Ream, where you can get around by taxi, tuk tuk, motorbike or bicycle. It’s a speedy 10-minute speedboat trip to Koh Russey.
AutomobilesThe centre of Sihanoukville is 45 minutes away by car. You won’t need a car to get around the island, and if you arrive in one, you’ll have to leave it on the mainland.
