I'm thinking of visiting them as an alternative to the beaches in Thailand. what I'd like is something a little less developed.

Also what would be the cost of staying on these beaches?

Do they have beach huts for hire similair to what they have in Thailand?

Thanx

Try Sirhanoukville, Cambodia, I haven't personally been there - YET! But it is on the "near list" of future travel.

I did have this info available from a brochure I picked up in Pattaya.

You can check out this place on the internet: Angkor Arms Hotel, Pub & Restaurant, etc.
Web page is www.angkorarms.com. Or direct at: [email protected] or, http://www.angkorarms.com/beaches.htm.

This pub advertised hotel rooms in the U.S. 7 to 20 dollar range and 5 minutes from the beach.

Have fun.

I have stayed at several spots in Sihanoukville. Downtown places are all about $5 fan room, $10 with a/c and cable TV. I would pass on staying in town. The Victory Beach Hill area is where you want to stay. Plenty of guesthouses and restaurants, nightlife as well. They still have very cheap accommodation, $3/nite at the lower end. If you stay on the hill, you can walk down to Victory Beach & Hawaii Beach. We stay at the Marina Hotel, just across Ekareach street from the rest of the action. Large Rooms are $8, fan & cable TV. A/C for $10. Quiet as well, that is why I like it. I have photos of S'ville posted.

Another choice would be to stay close to the beach. Monkey Republic GH is right on Serenity Beach, $6/nite fan room. They serve food as well. Most dinners in the $2-3 range.

Sihanoukville is worth a look; cheap rooms/food, warm water for swimming and diving and easy to get to. PM me if you have questions.

^Thx for that Vegas Mike.

Also, what would the weather be like their from Sept-Nov?

I know it's rainy season. Just how wet is it everyday? I've heard that it only rains for a couple hours a day. Is this true?

Frank,
Only a fool would predict the weather months from now, but it generally only rains intermittingly. By Nov. the rainy season is usually over. You should be fine.
