    We went in march to Koh Rung island on a trip arranged by an aussie guy Paul, you can find him at the cool Banana Guesthouse close to the Golden lions roundabout in Sihanoukville, a girlfriend of his was just starting up with 4 treehouse bungalows and a small restarant, if you want peace and qiuet then this place is a must, we had an amazing time there. can definitly recomend it. Bamboo islands got pretty busy nowadays!
    This place might be primitive but its private and peacefull

    If you want peace and quiet with a slice of paradise - check out Rabbit Island (Koh Tonsay) off Kep...

    Posted from within Vietnam.

    I can wholeheartedly recommend Phu Quoc. I know its technically in Vietnam (although this is contested by Cambodia) but I found this place just incredible.

    The easiest way (aside from flying) is to take a boat from Phnom Penh to Chau Doc. I paid 15 dollars for the boat. The next day you should take the bus to Rach Gia ($4/5) and jump on the fast boat (Sorry i cant remember the cost!). Its a bit of a trek to get to but it is so beautiful. Plus the boat down the Mekong from PP to Chao Doc has some excellent scenery, particularly once you cross into Vietnam.

    Just be sure to remember that the Vietnam visa is not available on arrival at Chao Doc and must be arranged in advance. It cost me $42 for a 30 day visa which was turned around in 2 days but my guest house in Phnom Penh.

    I was at Phu Quoc in January 2009, very beautiful place (I recommend Sea Star Resort).
    This year I want to stay in Cambodia.
    Thank you all for good ideas that are giving me.

    Koh Tunsay outside Kep is very, very relaxing. Cheap (very basic) accommodation and not too many tourists (yet!) But it's absolutely no party place. Strictly relaxing. Beautiful island. Many Khmers there in the weekends. If you want to stay in Cambodia, there's not many islands to choose from. Mainly Koh Tunsay and Koh Kong I would think.

    Koh Tunsay wins hands down in my opinion. Search flickr, travelblog or google images for pictures.

    Good Luck!

    I got that wrong.. I now see you wanted to stay in the south.. Koh Kong is of course not in the south.

    Apart from Koh Tunsay there are a couple of others down by Sihanoukville. Ko Ta Kiev, Ko Craloh, and Ko Russei.
