We are two couples traveling in Laos/Cambodia from Dec 15th to Jan 7th. We were hoping to stay in Koh Rong Samloem for a couple of days around New Year, but it appears every decent place is booked (Agoda, Booking, ...).
I would like to know if,
a) it is recommended to show up there without reservation as good places might not be bookable on the internet. b) if some other islands/beaches would match up KRS and be less crowded around Jan 1st.
We're looking mostly for upscale bungalows around 75$ USD/night.
Thank you for your tips

My advice to your particular situation would be contact directly the $75+ places you are looking at directly, today. Not tomorrow, today. Most places in that price bracket will be heavily represented by the online agents, so they may indeed be full.
That's not to say the islands are full - they won't be, not yet at least - but you may want to look at something cheaper and see if you can get something confirmed.
