The best way to end this trip was to spend a laid-back day by the shores of this idyllic island, which was 160.5 kms away. It is beautiful and secluded. The scenery is truly magical and is less frequented by tourists. Extensive shorelines and crystal clear waters add to the daintiness of this beach. All you would want to do here is lie by the sand and wait for the sun to descend.
Bokor National Park
Established by the French as a hill station in 1925, Bokor has since been abandoned twice, during World War II and the Khmer Rouge period. The area including Bokor ‘mountain’ was established as a national park in 1993 with its 1,500 square kilometres spanning four Cambodian provinces. Despite substantial illegal logging, it’s still home to gibbons, hornbills, civets and sunbears. Recent development of a new casino, hotel and hangar-like convention centre may have affected the ghostly ambiance of the hill station, but included building a wonderful curving road to the top of the hill, making Bokor much easier to access.The most beautiful and most mystical natural park of Southeast Asia, it is, of cource, Phnom Bokor. 140 thousand hectare of untouched mountain jungle, the biggest herd of wild elephants in Southeast Asia.

Chen Sea Resort & Spa Phu Quoc
The Chen Sea Centara Resort, (20 minutes north of the airport, but away from the busy Long Beach) has only 36 villas and is really tranquil. Opt for a Jacuzzi villa, but, as tempting as it is to just soak up your wonderful surroundings, do venture out one more time to see the vibrant night market.
