It can be a tricky thing moving from one island to another in Cambodia. The easiest way to get from Koh Rong/Koh Rong Samloem is to take the ferry back to Sihanoukville and then take a transport by road from there.
note the morning boat will get to Sihanoukville to late for public transportation, so if you choose this transport you will have to leave Koh Rong/Koh Rong Samloem the previous day and stay the night in Sihanoukville.
There are no ferries from Koh rong/Koh Rong samloem to Koh Sdach.
But there are possibilities to hire a private boat. Prices from$150 and up depending on type of boat, weather, passengers, holidays and more.
For the moment there are no organized buses from Sihanoukville to Koh Sdach. The easiest way is a private taxi from Sihanoukville to Poy Jopon cost about $90. Please let us know if you want a private car minimum 2 days prior.
You can also take local transportation, an adventurous sightseeing. Take a shared taxi from Psar Leu 8 am to Veil Reighn (from $5).From Veil Reighn you change to a shared mini van with vegetables and things to the market going to Poy Jopon and Koh Sdach ($5) or you might be able to get a seat on the Virak Buntham bus that left Phnom Penh at 8.
There will be waiting..
Sometimes there is also a shared direct taxi straight to Poi Yopon for $10
From Poy Jopon you take one of the small speedboats to the Island. When you share the boat with others the normal price is 5000-10000 Riel or from $5 for your own boat. Click here for map.
It used to be possible to go to Koh Sdach by transport boat, but this boat does no longer run on a steady schedule, and it will be a gamble knowing if the boat will depart and when you will arrive. So we don’t recommend this transportation.
