A month back, I have written on 4 Khmer Traditional House. Today I want to share five simple and raw beach shacks in Cambodia that you can homestay. Usually these homestay shacks are quite basic and yet functional with full running water and toilet. In the interior, you will see basic décor in Cambodian style, sometime the shacks owner decides to upgrade their shacks and turn them into nice boutique hotels.
Just an updated in 2019, i have heard from different sources that Sihanouk ville has been visited by many Asian tourists, especially from China. Traffic congestion is another issue. On the other hand, Cambodia has started to open up its island for foreign tourists. So the next time you visit this sleepy coast town, do visit one of its island such as Koh Rong , Koh rong sanleum, they are beautiful.
The Cambodian décor in these beach shacks are usually comprised of small apsara statues or lion of bakheng or similar landscaping drawing. The decor complements well this raw and simple structure.
In fact according to some reports, many of the shacks in Cambodia have turned into a homestay opportunity for many eco tourists. You see, not all tourists are a like. Some likes the usual expensive 5 stars hotels, while other enjoy the simple village life. That is why the homestay market in Cambodia have flourished in recent years.
Cambodia is a beautiful country. It has the most beautiful beaches and in recent years, more islands are opened up for business. As such, go to Cambodia and live in one of these homestay shacks!
