I may spend most of my life running around like crazy from school to work to food blogging to triathlon training, but I am pretty excellent at relaxing too, especially when a nice beach is involved.
We found a basic, cheap room only about 1/4 mile from Serendipity beach, but quickly discovered that the best beach in the area (Otres Beach) is a 10-minute moto ride away. We had a fabulous time hanging out on the beach, reading, swimming in the beautiful warm water, and of course, drinking a few glasses of the local beer.
The food wasn’t spectacular – lots of basic curries and fresh fruit – but that’s not why we went to Sihanoukville.
We had originally planned on 3 days, but enjoyed it so much we ended up staying 9! Definitely a great spot to do absolutely NOTHING but watch sunsets and relax. It’s also the best place in SE Asia to get a Vietnam visa – you pay your $40 at the consulate and have the visa in your hand in about 15 minutes.
Next up…the Mekong Delta in southern Vietnam!
