Otres Beach 01.05.18 - 08.05.17

Otres Beach Bums

We spent a wonderful week living the beach-bum life in Otres, a small coastal village that reminded us in some ways of Goa (minus the trance music, thank goodness). There is a lovely community of both locals and expats that are all working together very creatively to develop the area. The growing village is around 8km from the much more developed, in our opinion less inviting Sihanoukville town center. The best part of our stay was the Saturday Night Market. It was set up by two friends from Australia who spontaneously bought a plot of land with no initial plans of what to do with it. With their artistic design skills they built a festival inspired venue that every Saturday night becomes a glorious hub of creativity. Expect a selection of world food street vendors, handmade craft stalls, second hand clothing stalls, a well stocked cocktail focused bar and a magnificent stage space for a selection of live artists and DJs to perform throughout the night. A minute taste of Glasto had us feeling slightly homesick, but happy nonetheless. We also enjoyed playing guinee pigs for a lovely French man who has built a jungle zip wire experience by hand. He waited until we were up in he trees to tell us we were some of his first customers, I can't work out whether that was a good or bad thing! 

Here's 10 photos from our time spent relaxing Otres style...
