So the group of people I was with on Koh Rong with consisted of a Scouser, three Geordies and two Londoners.. there were other people on the island I knew that joined us at different points too. The main part if the island was just one big beach with hostels, bungalows and a couple of open front shops. The dorms obviously didn't have air con but because this side of the island is a lot more touristy the hostels have generators so as they can keep music playing etc after ...

... Eventually all was well again and they booked a minibus to Phnom Penh.
Again the accounts of the minibus journey may vary between the two. Rob thought it was a fast drive on a decent enough road, though parts of it were undergoing repair and regrading and enjoyed a nice snooze. Emma thought she was going to die.
