Rajabori Villas

Located in Kratie Posted by Pheara


It's really easy ; one must go to the Port of Kratie, in front of Santepheap hotel and there wait for the wooden boat that work as a ferry.
It costs 1000 riels per passenger and the crossing takes about five minutes.
To leave the island it's the same, one just has to wait on the beach, or in front of the pagoda in the rainy season when the water level is high.
When coming to stay on the island with a lot of luggage, it is slightly more complicated...
The best thing is to ask your guesthouse to organize the transfer from the peer on the island with an ox(or horse)cart (5$ one way), a moto-taxi (1$ one way) or the only tuk tuk on the island (5$ one way) to come pick you up or even organize a direct transfer by private boat (10-15$ one way) to the foot of your selected accommodation (in the rainy season only as the beaches that uncover in the dry season render that impossible).

For people traveling through North East Cambodia, all roads going to Laos, Vietnam, Ratanakiri and Mondolkiri converge in Kratie, a small town on the banks of the Mekong river. Known mostly for the fresh water dolphins that dwell North of town, Kratie doesn't usually keep its visitors for more than one night. A few hundred meters away from the town of Kratie, in the middle of the mighty Mekong River, there is another Cambodia, a Cambodia still mostly spared by the modern world.

Surrounded 8 months a year by white sandy beaches, constantly refreshed by the river's breeze, the island of Koh Trong is some sort of an ideal Cambodia. No cars, but carts, smiling peasants, craggy fishermen and a rich soil that man turned into an orchard, , "the island where the King lost his ring" is a small paradise. 

The Rajabori invites you to lay down your luggage and discover this world !
