In order to get to Koh Rong Samleom, you have to get from Phnom Penh or any other province to Sihanoukville first. It usually takes 35 to 45 minutes to arrive at Saracen Bay on Koh Rong Samloem as they list on their sites. This may be technically possible if they leave on time and go directly to your stop first.
