First timers help?

Hi, we have been to Goa 4 times and are wanting to go further afield.

We want good restaurants/bars/beaches/tours etc.

Aged young 49/47 Lol

Is there anywhere that Cambodia offers something similar to Goa but full of Cambodian charm?

Thanks

Ian/Bev

There is nowhere in Cambodia that is anything like Goa (i spent 2 months in Goa and been to Cambodia 3 times).Sihanoukville has plenty restaurants, bars and several beaches but it leaves a lot to be desired.

Agree with #1. Maybe consider Thailand, has everything you are after.

As it will be a special occasion Ian/Bev, good thing you checked on the forum. As you’re keen on a beach location, Thailand would be a much better option. Cambodia is a place jam packed with ancient places of historical interest, great food and lovely local people, but I would never recommend it for the sort of beach environment you’ve described that you’d like.

Sounds like Thailand & The Philippines would suit u just fine..

I love beaches & have the same expectations of restaurants/bars/beaches/tours for my travel destinations..

Sihanoukville was 1 of my fav beach destinations in the past but not now , ever since the Chinese Casino invasion...
