Sihanoukville was definitely one of my favourite weekends in Cambodia. We left early Thursday morning and in 4.5 hours, we were in beach paradise.
We had no plans for the weekend except to just laze on the beach and do a boat tour.
To be honest, it's not the most amazing beach in the world and the town is a bit of a sleazy party town. However, it's a great beach to enjoy if travelling on a budget (like us). For 15USD we got to enjoy a whole day boat tour, breakfast, lunch and snorkelling. And $3 cocktails on the beach - who can say no to that?
You can really just enjoy the sunshine, water and sand with a peace of mind - there's no fear of breaking the bank!
It was also a special weekend of us as a team because it was early on in our 6 week project, and going away for the weekend was a great bonding experience where we truly became each other's segunda familia (second family). We came back with great stories to tell of a dead black guy, sleeping security guard, getting lost and discovering beautiful beaches, and the list goes on...
