To get around Koh Rong, you can rent a boat taxi or motorbike taxi to reach several remote parts of the island. There is no airport in Koh Rong and the only way to access the island is by a 45-90 minutes’ ferry starting from Sihanoukville Ferry Terminal. The airport in Sihanoukville connects flights with Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. When departing Koh Rong for a flight in Sihanoukville, you should consider spending extra time for transfer on board as it depends on the sea conditions and the ferry’s mechanical operation.
