Recently populated, at first by fishermen, Koh Rong Samloem has converted its economy around tourism. About 300 families live on this paradise-like island that is endangered by extensive fishing and badly managed tourism. Aware of the risks, some great initiatives are being developed, such as beach clean ups, waste-management programs, and saving the Cambodian marine life. With its low-key vibes, turquoise blue waters, fine sand beaches, lush jungles, and beautiful underwater world, it is very tough to leave Koh Rong Samloem that until now only has a few sandy paths to go around!
