How to get to Tapang's?

Motorcycle Taxi: (motodup, moto) drivers expect foreigners to pay 1000-2000R in town, and 2000R - 4000R from town to the beaches. Locals pay less but getting the local price is nearly impossible. Prices go up for multiple passengers and at night. Settle on a price and destination before taking the ride and insist on being taken directly to your requested destination.

Motorcycle Rental: At the moment there is a ban on tourists driving motorcycles and cars in Sihanoukville. It is not clear whether the ban is permanent or will be lifted at some point in the future. Prior to the ban, most of the tourist-oriented businesses in town rented motorcycles, including most guesthouses and hotels, the bus companies, travel/tour companies and even restaurants. 100cc bikes were between $3-$5/day. Fewer places rented 250cc bikes but they were still readily available at about $7-$8/day. 100cc is more than sufficient for travel in town and to the beaches. Most places required a passport as security. Always lock your motorcycle or leave it in guarded parking. Motorcycle theft is not uncommon.

Car Rental: Car rental (with diver) can be arranged through your hotel or travel agent. Taxis at the downtown bus and taxi station are also available for private hire. Cars cost around $20/day with driver. They can also be hired for short jaunts in town ($4-$6) and specific trips such as sunset mountain ($10) the waterfalls ($15) or Ream ($17).

Lovely small shop. I purchased cotton dresses for my granddaughters, bags for my daughter and myself. A pencil case and book bag for my grandson with geckos and grasshopper prints. Cute clear plastic and fabric with color trim, zip purses for gifts. Knowing the shop supports local families and encourages children to go to school, I was very happy to spend money going towards this organisation.

Found loads of quirky and cute items for souvenirs as well as self. Most items are made from re-cycled goods which is a bonus. Particularly fond of my money-belt made from a local fabric.
