World Travel Tales

Long Set Beach, Koh Rong, Cambodia

Long Set Beach

This perfect white sand beach was over two kilometres long. It's a little walk from the main tourist beach, so much less frequented. On the day Manja and I visited there were only a handful of tourists on beach all day long. The water was warm and clear and having the beach to ourselves was absolute paradise.

Koh Rong, Cambodia

Cooling Off on a Hot Day

It was a blazing hot day and we were sitting at a little restaurant when this ox came running out of the field and plunged into this cool pool of seawater to cool down, where he stayed until we left.
