The oldest and most appealing resort in Cambodia

121226 10b

Koh Thas used to be the most popular recreational site in Pursat, according to local people.

Koh Thas is in the middle of a lake accessible by a bridge linking the island to the main shore.

Tourists can row duck boats around and enjoy fantastic cuisine.

There is a playground for kids. You can also enjoy the rollercoaster flying from the edge of the island across the water and vice versa.

In 2012, my friends and I went to Koh Thas Resort. The road to get there was bumpy. After more than one hour of driving, we reached Koh Thas 15 kilometers from the centre of Pursat.

Just as we reached Koh Thas, I began to feel fresh upon marveling at nature.

It was so quiet and breezy thanks to the trees' shade and the lake.

What I noticed the most was the quietness of the place.

There were only us sitting in a kiosk with the nature all around.

On the island, lush vegetation was blooming. It seemed like an abandoned place.

Heng Rortchanry, a teacher in a private school in Pursat Province, says, “It is due to the bumpy road. People find it difficult to get here. The legend goes that a lot of kids drowned in the lake before making it.”
