AirAsia Is Flying to Sihanoukville Cambodia The Little Russia
When we were in Siem Reap last week, we spoke to the locals and they told us about this place called Sihanoukville. It is a coastal city and it is also known as Little Russia by the locals. You can find many Russian tourists in Sihanoukville and it is located near the border of Southern Vietnam. The good news is AirAsia will fly to Sihanoukville in August 2017.
The inaugural flight as reported will be on 9th August 2017 and this will be an interesting destination rival other coastal cities in the region. From Sihanoukville, you can visit the popular Koh Rong island.
Another interesting fact is it is very near the popular Phu Quoc island of Vietnam, another popular island. We are not sure whether there is a direct ferry transfer from Sihanoukville to Phu Quoc but we read they are planning to do it in 2018.
Sihanoukville seems to be quite interesting place to visit as we never visited Little Russia or anything similar before. Thus, do remember that Malaysians do not require VISA to travel to Cambodia or Vietnam. Another gentle reminder too that the popular currency in Cambodia is US dollars.
So if you ran out of ideas where to travel, why not check out this new route from KLIA 2 to Sihanoukville Cambodia. Now, everyone can fly to Sihanoukville and for more information, you can visit AirAsia.com.
