A stroll through Otres Beach, Sihanoukville, Cambodia

A stroll around Otres, showing also the sunsets, the Saturday night market, dinner at the beach, and an example of accommodation.  I start where the road comes in to Otres, walk along the road, then at the end of the built up area go to the beach, and walk back to the starting place but along the beach.

And on Saturday nights there is a market. About $4 by tuk tuk and 10 minutes to get there. Otres Beach becomes very quiet as many tourists and local shop owners go.

  1. I’m not eating at Vanny’s – $3 for … a chip, or an onion ring! And I fear that I would go completely berserk after eating the amok seafood.

    1. Perhaps Vanny’s English expression could be better – I doubt too many otherwise would pay $3 for an onion ring. And it’s probably OK to run amok in Otres – it’s so relaxed everyone would ignore you. Amok is pretty good, actually.
