Tourism in Koh Rong and the other islands off the Cambodian coast is growing fast and there are many development opportunities.
Looking at land for sale in Koh Rong and the islands? First visit on our page on Land for sale in Cambodia for general information about owning and buying land in Cambodia.
In a nutshell foreigners are not allowed to purchase land in Cambodia, although they can buy a condo (see Condo for Sale in Cambodia). There are ways around this, such as using a nominee structure or registering a holding company to purchase the property, which could be appropriate for large commercial purposes. However, if you are considering exploiting this loophole, we recommend that you seek legal advice first.
Why Buy Land in Cambodia?
Cambodians regularly buy and sell land. The price has soared over the last 10 years, especially land in Phnom Penh and land in Siem Reap. However, there are still great investment opportunities away from the major urban areas.
When looking at purchasing land in the provinces, you should check the current road access and road quality, future infrastructure plans, electricity and water hook-ups, land level (to avoid flooding), soil quality, and proximity to desirable locations.
Why Buy Land in Koh Rong or Koh Rong Samloem?
Tourism in Koh Rong, Koh Rong Samloem, and the other islands off the Cambodian coast near Sihanoukville has developed steadily over the last 10 years.
Travellers are being lured in increasing numbers to Koh Ta Kiev, Koh Tang, Koh Puos, Koh Russey, Koh Sdach and Koh Rong Sanloem by tales of the beautiful beaches, clear waters and wonderful nature. This really is a paradise in Southeast Asia. Yet it still remains a largely undeveloped destination, and land is comparatively cheap.
The islands are comparable in quality – but not cost – to far better known resort islands in Thailand.
