The end of a era

Koh kong island one of the last true castaway experience in this region is now entering a new period but sadly leaving behind another.Recently Bungalows have been built ion beach 4 and opened in December 2012,the same people who own the Apex have now are expanding to beach 3(beach 6 in the lonely planet) so people will now be bale to stay out on the island in bungalows,hopefully it will be run ok and people can stay on the island to experience its beauty.This joint Apex hotel/military soldiers on the island venture opens new time for the island but also closes another which i stared 8 yrs ago which is the days tours to the island as they are not allowing trips to the beach 3 while they construct and only after if they eat at there restaurant,so the freedom of beach BBQ and adventure has now gone,but trips will still be run to beach 2 which is nice but not of the beach 3 standard.reports this season from guest are of the island suffering from its worst year of sand flies with some people being badly bitten by the little terrors,this is possibly due tot he increase in rubbish from fishing boats and other tour operators leaving there litter and lunch remains there,so possibly the adventure and uniqueness of the island has now passed.
