Koh Thmei

Getting there and away


Getting to Koh Thmei is part of the fun. Ask the bus driver to stop at Ou Chamnar (Bat Kokir) just before the toll booths about 30 minutes drive out of Sihanoukville. From there, hire a moto to take you to Koh Kchhang fishing village down the six kilometre dirt road. Alternatively, get a taxi to take you all the way from Sihanoukville (about $20) or Phnom Penh if you're feeling flush. Once you get to the village, you'll see a painted turn right sign at a junction. The pier is about half a kilometre down, also marked with handpainted signs.

If you have a car or motorbike, parking can be arranged at the village. For a bike, this means the boatman arranging storage in someone's house – be sure to come equipped with padlock and chain.

Call Koh Thmei Resort in advance to arrange the boat transfer – it's a beautiful trip of just less than an hour which takes you through mangroves and along the island's shore, with Bokor Mountain and Phu Quoc island in the distance.
