There is no real backpacker scene left on Ochheuteal beach all the small restaurant shacks by the pier is demolished and only a few makeshift stalls are there selling Khmer food so if you are coming here dreaming about the past booze parties on this beach you will have to think again.
This is not something you will see today
High rises and Casinos is what is hot here now besides the weather – no change there 👍 it is for the moment hard to find a restaurant due to most of the buildings are under construction and there are just not enough tourist here.
Victory hill and the other bar scenes are demolished too in favor of villas, hotels and more fancy air con restaurants.
This is a picture of one of the main streets from 2016
This is the same street today
I am not against development and progress but I also think that the cosy laidback world could coexist with the modern hustle and bustle.
