The weather is a very important issue during your SCUBA diving holidays

Koh Rong Island is located at the coast of Sihanouk Ville in Cambodia. During the rainy season Cambodia suffer from high humidity and oppressive heat. The rainy season lasts from June to October, with an average rainfall of 1600 mm and high temperatures (average July temperature of 28 °). Most rain falls on the mountain slopes that are facing the Gulf of Thailand.

From May to September the wind comes mainly from the southeast while during the winter time and the dry season the wind comes from north and northeast. The dry season from December to April is characterized by high temperatures and an average of eight hours of sunlight per day.

The best months to visit Cambodia is from November to April. This is also the best time to schedule your diving holidays.

Bankruptcy of the diving company

What can we say, nobody is perfect. But in our case it is slightly different. We split our business into different alone standing business. So there is a travel agency in our group as well as a Ferry service to the islands. Further do we run two guest-houses and resorts and this diving school.
We can say that it is very hard to put the Koh Rong Dive Center out of business.
And remember – you do not need to pay the full amount at the booking, a serious deposit will keep both of us happy and trustful.

Medical care

We agree, it not seems to look very trustful in the Cambodian hospitals, but Sihanouk Ville is the main City at the Gulf of Siam. It contain a large harbor and seaport. Therefor the medical care is one of the best and experienced with accidents on sea. But even if this should not be enough. Sihanouk Ville has an airport to carry you fast to Phnom Penh or even to Bangkok.

The cost of the medical care, should be covered by your travel insurance. But please make sure that your insurance did not exclude SCUBA Diving. If so, find another insurance and make sure your diving holidays are covered in it’s policy.
