Otres Beach, Cambodia
Relax at Otres BeachA 20-minute tuktuk ride should cost you roughly $5 from the center of Sihanoukville out to Otres Beach, and as the tuktuk approaches the line of palm trees at the seafront, you'll be startled by the stark whiteness of the sand. The red dirt roads meet at a T-intersection, lined by small cafés, shops, a few luxury hotel properties, and about four times as many backpacker bungalows and hostels. Errant cows and chickens wander the pathways. On a weekday, in the mornings, there's a beautiful sleepiness to the pace of Otres, but as the day moves onward, more people arrive. This is one of the best places on Earth to experience a sunset so wait until dark to return to Sihanoukville.
