A real retreat
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.

Nicky Sullivan is an Irish freelance writer (and aspiring photographer). She has lived in England, Ireland, France, Spain and India, but decided that her tribe and heart are in Cambodia, where she has lived since 2007 despite repeated attempts to leave. She dreams of being as tough as Dervla Murphy, but fears there may be a long way to go. She can’t stand whisky for starters. She was a researcher, writer and coordinator for The Angkor Guidebook: Your Essential Companion to the Temples, now one of the best-selling guidebooks to the temples.
