Lovely island. I stayed at Pomelo Homestay. Amazing experience to stay with a friendly and knowlegable local island family. The food was also fantastic. Thank you so much to Vireak and his lovely relatives.

We stayed 1 night with a local family. They were super friendly and made sure we were happy. Good food, and a bathroom beyond our expectations (simple but everything you need) Only thing that was a pity is that we could not communicate with them....More

Stayed on the island in Homestaying 1. It’s peacefull, no cars, and the hostess was very friendly and served great dishes. No wifi, washing with a bucket of water. An experience to go for.

We rent bike and went around village then walked into the middle of Meakhong river it is look like dessert. People around village are friendly. You need to take a boat to the other side of the river 1000 Riel per person, kid is free.

The island is nice, the transport across the river is cheap and interesting. You can rent bike on the island and make the turn of it (around 10km) in 1h / 1h30.

Hi Wayne, I don't think there are any places to camp on the island. We did a thorough tour of it and saw no evidence of camping facilities. The only thing I can suggest is that you contact the few guest houses there and ask... More
