A real retreat
Koh Trong, east side of the island
Koh Trong has two homestays, one to the south of the boat landing and the other to the north, just shy of Rajabori Villas.
Of the two, the northern one is the better, with public sleeping on the floor of the stilted wooden house or more private sleeping in a private room towards the rear.
All sleeping arrangements include a mosquito net and bedding and basic fare is available on site. Underneath the house a few hammocks are strung around and this is generally a scenic spot on the island. If you're looking for an authentic, unadulterated rural Khmer experience, look no further. Reasonable rates. You can book at the Community Based Tourism Centre which is just at the top of the pathway when you get off the ferry, or through CRD Tours back on the mainland, who you’ll find in Le Tonle Guesthouse.
