How to get to Sihanoukville
To get to Sihanoukville is the main and only problem with this resort. It is, of course, is not in the distant dense jungle. But given that to Cambodia from Russia directly, the planes do not fly, and in the Sihanoukville airport receives flights only from Siem Reap airportto get here without the use of ground transport is unlikely. The most convenient route, in our opinion, to fly with a transfer to Phnom Penh (direct flights from Russia there) and from there by taxi or via Phnom Penh by bus. There are also options to get here by bus from Ho Chi Minh city, Siem Reap and other cities in Asia, but hardly manage to plan a route with no intermediate camp.
