The tour started with a one-and-half hour boat ride up the river through the park. Being a six footer this was not the most comfortable time, it was reasonably interesting to see the locals fishing and their villages as we passed by. We arrived at a small pier near the estuary of the river where we disembarked to start our walk through the jungle. We walked through some settlements where water-buffalo were grazing and the local dogs got a bit territorial. Then we entered the 'jungle' , which had a well worn path through it to the beach. Off-track it looked very thick and dense and we could hear, but not see, the monkeys playing in the tree tops.Note a pair of decent walking shoes were useful as the path was up and down and criss-crossed by tree roots, plus a couple of ditched to get across. It was very humid so make sure you take water with you..you will leak -a lot. After about an hour we arrived at Koh Sam Pouch Beach. The sea was extremely salty and very very warm, but was welcome after the walk. A small pleasant beach with one restaurant with changing rooms and toilets. Good Khmer food, tried the roast pork and rice dish, plus a dipping sauce of salt, pepper, sugar and lemon juice, which was pretty spikey.
