We debated for a long time on how to plan our itinerary after Vietnam. Thankfully we spoke with many travelers along the way and heard recommendations. Because we flew twice and skipped a few cities, we moved through Vietnam in 10 days rather than our planned two weeks. Since we had some extra time we decided we needed to visit the beaches of Cambodia. We also contemplated on scuba diving while there. We heard mixed reviews on the diving conditions, as some of the waters have been damaged from dynamite fishing and over fishing. But Cambodia is also one of the cheapest places to dive, so after visiting a dive office in Phnom Penh we decided to go for it. From Phnom Penh, we booked a five hour Mekong Express van to Sihanoukville, the main town on the southern coast.
