Thailand, Cambodia Vietnam coastal kayaking trip
8th July, 2008
My partner and I would like to take 2 months and kayak the gulf of thailand and the South China sea. Dropping in at Rayong/Thai and paddling down to say Ko Chan, then along/into Cambodia to say Ko Kong. Continuing on stopping to camp etc - & If possible down along the coast to the Rach Gia/Vietnam. This is our rough plan as of yet. Any feedback about how realistic this is would be most appreciated. Thanks so much!

That would be a very, very interesting trip.
Formality wise you'd need to cross at the land crossings (Haad Lek/Ko Kong and Prey Chak, Xe Xia -- see the border crossing FAQ for more info), but once you'd cleared customs, it shouldn't be a problem to go back to the water and keep paddling.
My only other advice would be regarding exercising caution along the Cambodian stretch -- especially between Ko Kong and Ko Sdach -- this remains pretty wild territory, and paddling around in a kayak would make you fairly tempting prey for opportunist thugs.

Hi, I've been looking at a trip around the gulf of Thailand from say Ko Chang to Tak Bai. I'm aware that the gulf of Thailand has been done but not past Cambodia.
Have you got any further with your research. I'd be especially interested!

Just had a great two day trip through kampot,kompong saom(snookyville) and back through kampot to kaep,thjrough kampong trach back to angasoam and on to home in phnom penh.
I have a nice late model mercedes with plenty of room for the khmer family and all the fruits and frogs and stuff that they must buy along the way.
The beach at KS was beautiful,the wet season is almost over it seems and the water was flat and the BBQ squid and beer was as cheap as ever.
Dad didnt approve of the barang ladies swim suits so we headed home this morning via kaep where I had to inspect some work on my land.
Kaep was glorious,blue skies after a shower ,last night and the drive through kampong trach through the limestone mountains was wonderful.
