Sihanoukville Serendipity Beach, Cambodia

by Samuel on April 3, 2013

In our latest travel video we explore Sihanoukville’s touristy Serendipity Beach located in the southern part of Cambodia. A once popular alternative to Thailand’s more popular and populated beaches, this beach has unfortunately taken a turn for the worse becoming more like a dump than anything else. As we walked along the sand we couldn’t help but notice garbage everywhere. Everything from used condoms to broken Vodka bottles was part of visual display of chaos. We couldn’t help but feel a sense of sadness and shame, given that many of our fellow backpackers have contributed to the destruction of this once pristine land. On the other hand, we equally blame the locals and business owners for not putting in more efforts to keep it clean. It was so disgusting that we decided against even taking a dip in the ocean waters. For a place with such natural beauty and potential it’s sad to see it ruined by tourist activity – paradise destroyed!

I was in Sihanoukville in 2009 and it was lovely, its heart breaking to see how horrible it is now 🙁 I just wish everyone would use tourism more responsibly both locals and travellers.
