Over the past year or so there have been some major changes in how to get to Koh Rong and its sister island Koh Rong Samloem. From much faster ferry services, to more convenient international flights, to the first cross-country train, it has never been easier to get to the beautiful islands. Here’s all the latest information to help you plan and book your trip.

P.S. You can book your tickets online now and save up to 30% on the day:

 

Sihanoukville to Koh Rong and Sihanoukville to Koh Rong Samloem

There are now 5 modern ferry services from Sihanoukville to Koh Rong and from Sihanoukville to Koh Rong Samloem – Speed Ferry Cambodia (SFC), Island Speed Boat Cambodia (ISBC), Buva Sea (BS), Angkor Speed Ferry (ASF), and GTVC. (There are also a couple of $5-$10 ‘Slow Boat’ services that take 1.5 – 2.5 hours – These services are not professionally run and are not recommended).

To give you an idea about what to expect, we made a short video below about the ferries:

 

The 5 services offer modern speed boats with comfortable chairs, life jackets, and the option to buy food and drink on board. Not all of the ferries have air-conditioning, but once the boats set off there is a strong cool breeze throughout the sitting areas which more than makes up for it.

All 5 services will charge roughly $25 return, though prices can vary depending on time of year, special offers, etc.

All services leave from the Ochheuteal (AKA ‘Serendipity’) pier in Sihanoukville and go to the main tourist beaches on the islands (Koh Touch on Koh Rong, and Saracen Bay on Koh Rong Samloem). If your hotel is not on the main beaches (Koh Touch / Saracen Bay), please read on below.

It will take about 40 minutes to get to your destination if it’s the first stop. If the boat first stops elsewhere, it may take 1 hour or so.

For Koh Rong the services stop at 2 piers that are very close to each other. However, for Koh Rong Samloem, SFC, ISBC, and BS stop on the left side of the bay, while ASF and GTVC on the right (it’s a 20 minute beach walk between the two, but your hotel should pick you up from either).

For the return journey the 5 services will leave from the same pier that they arrived on. All services will go back to the Ochheuteal (Serendipity) pier in Sihanoukville.

All ferry services can be very busy – We strongly recommend you book your tickets in advance and not miss out on the day. You can book your ferry tickets online now here:

How to Get From Koh Rong to Koh Rong Samloem (and Vice Versa)

To get from Koh Rong to Koh Rong Samloem (or from Koh Rong Samloem to Koh Rong), you can buy a transfer ticket with any of the ferry companies above. To give you an idea of price, a transfer ticket from Koh Touch (the main tourist area on Koh Rong) to Saracen Bay (the main tourist area on Koh Rong Samloem) costs roughly $6 one way.

You can buy your tickets at any of the ferry ticket shops on the islands or at the Serendipity Pier in Sihanoukville. The journey will take approximately 15 minutes (try to make sure that the ticket you buy is direct or the journey may take longer).

You can also hire a private long tail boat (traditional Khmer fishing boat – pictured below) to take you.

A Private Long Tail Fishing Boat Can Take You From Koh Rong to Koh Rong Samloem (and Vice Versa)

 

A private long tail boat will cost considerably more but can be shared among a group. For example, the boat will cost in the region of $30 to go from Koh Touch to Saracen Bay, $20 to go from Koh Touch to M’Pai Bay, and $60 to go from Koh Touch to Lazy Beach. Please only choose this option if the weather is nice enough for the journey.

If you’re staying on either Sok San Beach, Long Set Beach, Nature Beach, Palm Beach, or Coconut Beach on Koh Rong, or if you’re staying on M’Pai Bay on Koh Rong Samloem, you can now get there directly by ferry boat. If you’d like to see all the different areas on Koh Rong and Koh Rong Samloem, please watch this video:

How to Get to Sok San Village

As of 2018 both Island Speed Boat Cambodia (3 times per day) and Buva Sea (1 time per day) stop at Sok San Village. The journey will cost roughly $25 return and will take approximately 1 hour.

Day Tours of Koh Rong and Koh Rong Samloem

Daily Tour of Koh Rong Island in Cambodia
Daily Tour Boat to Koh Rong

 

If you would like to see Koh Rong and Koh Rong Samloem but you have limited time, an organised day tour is a great option – We recommend the (appropriately named) Daily Tour Boat.

The Daily Tour Boat will take you to both of the islands and will give you several hours to explore, relax, and take part in activities (e.g. snorkelling and swimming).

The day tour will start at 9am (finish at 5.30pm) from the Ochheuteal (AKA Serendipity) Pier. Breakfast and Lunch are included, and the price for the Daily Tour Boat is $25 per person.

The Daily Tour boat can be very busy – We strongly recommend you book your tickets in advance and not miss out on the day. You can book your day tour online now here:

How to Get to Sihanoukville

International Flights to Sihanoukville

You can now fly directly into Sihanoukville from Kuala Lumpur, Ho Chi Ming City, and Macau – The first international flights to the airport.

The timing of the flights isn’t always that convenient, but we predict that the airport will open for further international flights in the near future. In particular, AirAsia, which provides the flights between Kuala Lumpur, Macau, and Sihanoukville, plans to open a subsidiary company in Cambodia, suggesting that they are looking to expand their services very soon. Read the full articles here and here.

Domestic Flights to Sihanoukville (The Most Popular Way to Get to Koh Rong From Siem Reap)

If you are already in Cambodia, you can fly directly from Siem Reap to Sihanoukville and from Phnom Penh to Sihanoukville. The flights to Sihanoukville from Siem Reap are quite regular (and this is the most common way to get from Siem Reap to Koh Rong). However, the flights to Sihanoukville from Phnom Penh can be inconvenient, and so other forms of transport (e.g. taxis, buses, and trains) are sometimes preferred. (See: How to Get From Phnom Penh to Sihanoukville).

Check Flights

 

How to Get From Sihanoukville Airport to Koh Rong

To get from Sihanoukville airport to Koh Rong, you can take a shuttle bus (around $4) that should be waiting outside the airport when you arrive.

The shuttle bus will take you into the centre of Sihanoukville, from which it is very easy to find the pier (just ask a passing Tuk Tuk to take you).

If for whatever reason you miss the shuttle bus, you should be able to find a Tuk Tuk (roughly $20) at the airport.

You can also hire a private taxi to take you – this will be more expensive at around $30.

Taxis to Sihanoukville

If you’re looking for a bit of comfort for your journey to Sihanoukville (perhaps you’re travelling from Phnom Penh to Koh Rong or from Kampot to Koh Rong), then a private taxi is your best option. Not only are taxis quicker and more enjoyable than buses, but you have the option of stopping for toilet breaks, coffees, and even sightseeing if you wish.

 

Although prices vary depending on the length of the journey, to give you a rough idea a private taxi from Phnom Penh to Sihanoukville will cost in the region of $60 and take 4 hours (2 hours faster than a bus).

The better services offer nice comfortable cars (e.g. a Lexus 4 x 4) and the drivers will pick you up from your hotel, the airport, or any other location convenient for you.

One thing that we recommend however is to book your taxi in advance. Not only is it cheaper, but Cambodian traffic can be hectic, so the taxi rides can be daunting and frightening if you don’t know your driver – please contact us to book a safe, reliable taxi driver from anywhere in Cambodia, or click below and book online now.

Buses to Sihanoukville (The Most Popular Way to Get to Koh Rong From Phnom Penh)

Bayon-VIP-Bus-From-Phnom-Penh-to-Sihanoukville
Bayon VIP Bus From Phnom Penh to Sihanoukville

 

There are many bus companies offering economy and VIP buses to Sihanoukville (this is the most common way to get from Phnom Penh to Koh Rong).

An economy bus ranges from $4-$6 on average and sits roughly 50 people. VIP buses are smaller and more comfortable, sitting around 15 people. They are a bit more expensive at $8-$10 one way.

VIP buses tend to be quicker and the journeys more convenient (e.g. you can ask the driver to stop if you desperately need to go to the toilet). To learn more about buses, read: Phnom Penh to Sihanoukville.

Direct Train From Phnom Penh to Sihanoukville

There is now the option of taking a train directly to Sihanoukville from Phnom Penh. Although the total journey can be in the region of 6.5 hours (compare a 4 hour taxi), don’t immediately disregard the idea – There is some absolutely fantastic scenery along the way, and all in all it makes for a very enjoyable experience.

 

The train currently operates only on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays and costs about $7 one-way. The carriages are quite comfortable and come with AC, plug sockets, and TVs (mainly playing Charlie Chaplin re-runs). The atmosphere is very cheerful and joyous, and because the train stops off several times along the way (including once in Kampot), the journey is broken up nicely.

 

The train’s schedule as of right now is as follows:

Phnom Penh to Sihanoukville: Friday 3pm, Saturday 7am, Sunday 7am, and Sunday 4pm.
Sihanoukville to Phnom Penh: Saturday 7am, Sunday 7am, Sunday 4pm, Monday 7am.

Don’t be too surprised if it’s delayed by 30 minutes – 1 hour however. If you’re thinking of giving the train a go, we recommend you buy your ticket in advance – Each ticket comes with its own seat number and acts as a reservation.

    What a very helpful site, thank you!
    I hope to get your advice on one thing:

    We plan on staying on Koh Rong Samloem the last 5 nights of our two week trip in Cambodia in January. Our international flight to take us home leaves from Seam Reap ‪7.30pm‬. The plan is to take a boat from the island to Sihanoukville in the morning and catch a midday flight from there to Siem Reap. Is it too daredevil to stay on the island the last night? Should we rather relocate to Sihanoukville or Siem Reap the day before?
    How reliable are the boats and domestic flights in January?
    We will start our two weeks with five days in Siem Reap so we prefer to not spend more time there but rather as much time as possible on Koh Rong Samloem.
    Thank you so much in advance!

      Hi Julia,

      By the sounds of it you should be ok with the timing – just plan to take an earlier ferry. The ferries should be reliable in January (no rain) and there are several different services to choose from just in case one gets cancelled…

    Hallo
    Eine wirklich tolle Website haben sie wo ich mir schon viele Infos holen konnte. Vielen Dank:).
    Ich hab da mal eine Frage und ich hoffe sie können uns weiterhelfen.
    Wir landen im April am sihanoukville Airport um 15 Uhr. Wie ist ihre Erfahrung, wie lange man mit Gepäck holen etc (Visum haben wir schon) beschäftigt ist und dann (ich denke wir buchen ein Kiwi Taxi) zum Serendipity Pier brauch? Wir haben Koh Rong samloem gebucht aber die letzte Fähre geht um 17 Uhr und das wird denke ich mega knapp! Gibt es auch Möglichkeiten einen privattransfer zu bekommen? Oder ist das extrem teuer? Ist es zu empfehlen Buva Sea anzuschreiben? Da steht man soll auch 45 Minuten vorher da sein, das ist ja wahrlich in unserem Fall utopisch:(
    Ich hoffe sie können uns helfen. Danke schon einmal im Voraus.

      Hello. It usually takes about 30 minutes or so to get out of the airport. It will then take another 30 minutes or so to get to the pier by taxi from the airport. So you might be OK for time, but if there are any delays it might be very close. A private transfer will cost quite a bit yes, but also it will be getting dark at this point, so you might struggle to find anyone that will take you. Hope that helps!

    Hi there, we are planning to visit Koh Rong and stay at Sok San Beach resort next February 2018. Never been there or in Sihanoukville before. Our issue is our return departure flight to Ho Chi Minh City is at 10:15AM ETD KOS Sihanoukville airport. The speedboat of the resort earliest transfer will drop us port 65 (the DROP-OFF Sihanoukville) at 8:30AM. We are a family of 4 with 2 kids and will definitely have at least one luggage to check in. We have no idea concerning taxi transfer duration from pier to airport and on time check-in restriction at KOS airport for international flights? Can you let us know? Can we realistically
    make it? Thanks in advance for your inputs.

      Hi Sam,

      I think you will be leaving it a bit too tight. If all goes well you should arrive to the airport about 1 hour before departure, which is pretty much the recommended bare minimum. But if the ferry is delayed at all for whatever reason you might well end up missing the flight with such a tight time frame. Perhaps you should consider taking the last ferry back to Sihanoukville the night before and leave yourself more time for the trip to the airport in the morning.

    Hi, I’m currently on Koh Rong and have a boat booked to Koh Rong Samloem in the morning, I’m trying to find a hostel to stay on but most say they’re a few miles from the centre. Do you have to get a separate boat and if so do you know how much?

    • Visit Koh Rong
      Reply

      Hi Lisa,

      Don’t pay too much attention to the descriptions on booking.com TripAdvisor etc – they are usually very misleading (these websites tend to just use templates because many resorts on the islands don’t provide their own descriptions).

      When you get off the boat there are resorts all across Saracen Bay, including immediately in front of you. There are also resorts on other parts of Samloem (e.g. M’Pai Bay, Sunset Beach, Lazy Beach). Your ferry might stop at M’Pai Bay first (small fishing village with lots of hostels), but to get to other areas of Samloem you’d need to get a separate connection.

      Hope that helps!

      Hi again David,

      Yes you can buy your ferry tickets at the Serendipity pier (for all ferry services). The Golden Lions is actually not too far from the pier (about a 7 minute walk), but Speed Ferry only require you to PICK UP tickets at their head office, i.e. if you have bought them in advance.

    Great article, sharing the new routes is excellent, much better than those pesky nightbuses!
    There have been some cool advances in this part of the world recently which enhance the travelling experience. In M’PaiBay there has been some development too.
