Editor’s Note: While I am preparing to leave Las Vegas, embark on an epic cross-country road trip exploring America and relocate to Thailand to become an expat, I have opened my blog to special guest posts from travel bloggers I love. This is a guest post written by Alexandra Pucherelli.
I am a self-proclaimed sunset junkie!
There is something about them that sucks me every evening. The way the colors change from dull to vibrant. Each sunset is unique yet they hold a common theme: the signal of the end of a day and the beginning of the night.
This particular sunset was sometime last December on the island of Koh Rong in Cambodia. I spent six nights on this tiny island, but this was the only sunset I got to witness. Unfortunately, all the bungalows are on the east side of the island and to watch the sunset you must walk for 45 minutes over the island to the other side. I highly recommend doing the hike in the morning and than spending the day on your own private 7km brilliant white sand beach and frolicking in the crystal turquoise waters (graeter). I wish I had done it earlier during my stay on the island. Since it is dark by the time you leave, you also need to find a local fisherman to take you back by boat to your resort.
The effort was well worth it. As I was rewarded with one of the best sunsets I saw in Southeast Asia.
