Rip Van Thailand

We’re back with another blockbuster video from the swaying palms of Southeast Asia. Sean has seamlessly spliced and sewn together snippets of our Khmer New Year holiday to Koh Kut, and we present them to you today. It’s a bit old, thus the title Rip Van Thailand, but a tale is just as great centuries later. Ask the Romans.

A quick refresher on where we went:
Screen Shot 2014-09-17 at 7.28.52 PMWe drove from Phnom Penh to the Thai border, then took a boat to Koh Kood(Kut). I marked Ho Chi Minh and Bangkok’s general area to give you a scope of where we were.

We had a leisurely trip to the border, with lots of rest and play along the way. Here we are kicking back at Nomad’s Land on Koh Totang. It was the peak of the hot season, so we moved very slowly and swam as often as possible.

 

Once we crossed the Thai border, we took a two hour boat ride to Koh Kut. IMG_1404Stepping onto the pier, I realized where the dried shrimp in our spring rolls come from.
IMG_1406I never dreamed there were so many shrimp hanging out where I snorkel!

 

Then, we had five days of bliss. I couldn’t get enough of Koh Kut. I daresay I liked it more than Koh Chang. But it’s tough when you’re comparing paradise with Shangri-La.

Here’s the video. Be sure to watch it in the highest resolution you can. We shot it in 1080p:

  1. Awesome video! Can’t wait to check out your blog now 🙂 So adding Koh Kut to our trip in Cambodia

  2. I am happy for you – glad you liked it, and that you are visiting SE Asia. Koh Kut is actually in Thailand, even though it looks like it’s in Cambodia. It is very easy to get there from Koh Kong in Cambodia, just take a bus from the border to Trat, and then there is a shuttle/ferry system. Piece of cake.

    If you want islands in Cambodia, though, not in Thailand, check out my other blogs posts. I’ve blogged about Koh Kong, Koh Ta Kiev, and Koh Tatong. (There are also Koh Rong and Koh Rong Samloem, but I haven’t been yet.) All are lovely!
