Which Cambodian islands choose to stay?Hi again.
I wonder what islands would be the most beautiful, untouched and greeat to relax ?
I can't make up which 3 islands choose. I will be able to spend 10 days off the Camobdia's coast.
I thought about Koh Rong, Koh Rong Samloem, Koh Russei, Koh Ta Kiev, Koh Kong..
I'd like to also choose one completely untouched and remoted island with no accomodation to spend some days sleeping in hammock or in camp. I've heard that Koh Prins, Koh Tang or Poulo Wai are great option for diving/snorkeling as well but far away.
One island for sure: Koh Thonsay, I guess it is kind of true Cambodia island..
Anyone have the idea what is the weather in July?Is the weather pleasent or the sea is rough?
Hope to get some info

2While hanging out on a little remote island in Cambodia may sound appealing, do know the water isn't the clearest and the snorkeling is nothing to get excited about. If you have an extra week, spend it on a lovely Thai beach...

4Thai beaches are crowded.. The point is to follow off the beaten track.
HenningWessel: How about other island in June/July ?What would be weather like? I really have no free time in other term than summer to visit Cambodia.

Yes, crowded Thai beaches, like this one, are just awful!

6I've been living on the Cambodian islands for the last 12 months or so. I'm currently living on the military island of Koh Ta Kiev, where I've got a little camp ground set up. Most tourist boats go to Bamboo island and some stop off on Koh Ta Kiev, but I'm the only boat operator who circles the island and explores the southern beaches.
In the last year I've only ever seen one other tourist boat there and it was a private hire with expats on board. The beaches are huge with nothing but jungle behind them. I camp out there sometimes with the more adventurous customers, but it's not suited to everyone. They're pretty remote!
July is into the rainy season and the seas can get a bit rough at the aforementioned beaches. I've taken people surfing out there before! It rains a lot, hence being the wet season, but I still live on the island and manage fine. Just have to bear in mind that some days the boat can't return to the mainland, and you'll get wet :)
