Getting there and away
Being an island, transits to Koh Rong Samloem are subject to the mood of the weather. Boats may leave or arrive late and you shouldn't rely on a quick transfer to a bus when returning to Sihanoukville.
For Saracen Bay, the triple-decker Party Boat leaves Serendipity Pier in Sihanoukville at 09:30, departing The Beach at around 15:00 to return to the mainland. Thanks to a recently refurbished engine, the journey time is now less than two hours on a calm day. Due to the boat's size, a small amount of wading and a short transfer on a smaller boat is required. The Party Boat may be moving from the pier to Sihanoukville port later in 2013. $10 one way, tickets available at Serendipity Pier in Sihanoukville and The Beach at Saracen Bay.
Lazy Beach, Robinson's Bungalows and Freedom Bungalows operate their own boats directly to their resorts. The boat to Robinson's Bungalows includes a short stop over at Koh Rong island.
The M'Pai Bei boat leaves Sihanoukville at 10:00 and returns from the village about 15:00 daily. $10 return. Tickets available from Koh Rong Island Travel's office on Serendipity Beach Road near the Golden Lions. Meet at the booking office at 9:00 for a transfer to the boat.
At M'Pai Bei village you can arrange transfers to Koh Rong island, or call Frank at Koh Rong's AKA Guesthouse on (081) 227353 for a collection.
