Recently, JG Black Book Sales and PR team members Greg Santulli and Erin McKeon returned from visiting our new partner in paradise, Cambodia's Song Saa Private Island . Today and tomorrow, follow along as they share their unanimous concensus as to why this dazzling destination warrants continual return:
He says...Song Saa offers a wide variety of outdoor activities from hiking to windsurfing. Some off-island activities include exploring the mangroves and pristine 5-mile beach of Koh Rong, an island set as Song Saa’s backdrop. Song Saa’s active role in supporting and sustaining this 500+ person village.
One highlight of my trip was the people I encountered. From the staff at Song Saa to the villagers in Siem Reap, everyone seemed so genuinely happy. Even the people living off of what Americans would consider ‘nothing,’ in corrugated steel shacks farming nothing but rice, had the biggest smiles on their faces.
I will miss the simplicity of the Cambodian lifestyle, the $2 tuk-tuk rides, and the natural beauty of a country oozing with warm hospitality. I can't wait to return!
Stay tuned for Erin's take on Song Saa and its surroundings tomorrow on the Black Blog of Travel!
