So, what is the deal with Sihanoukville?
This is the only beach resort in Cambodia since 1955, when the first deepwater port in this country was built here during the French colonial period. Kampong Som Previously, it was renamed after King Sihanouk Sihanoukville.[ITM image=”https://lotosun.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/camp1.png” video=”25809447″]
Sihanoukville is not a bit “sleazy”?
Certainly, the city has a big party, but it's easy to avoid if that's not your bag. Also once cleaned in recent years. It can be seen along Ochheuteal, the most famous beach in the city, and in the village of Otres, where a creative community emerges.
And is not it full of construction?
Yes, some areas of the city are not beautiful like anywhere else. The specific casino complex is really a bad thing about the landscape, not to mention the development impact for the local people and the coast.
But despite the overwhelming progress, many still cling to its charms. In response, the art center has grown around Otres and some motels (such as Chochi Garden and Patchouly Chill House) provide a more comfortable experience. We still do not hear a whole beach for you.
OK, it does not sound too old. The best beaches?
Ochheuteal are the most common. You will have many massage services during the day and lunches, happy watch, outdoor barbecue and party at night. Further west, Victory Beach and Beach Hawaii are a bit quieter.
However, Otres is the place to go. Otres Otres 1 and 2 is full of beach bars, restaurants and motels. The Otres 1 strain is occupied and there is a patch between two empty happiness.
What else can I do?
The market in the city center of Sihanoukville, Psar Leu, is worth the walk, especially the seafood area if you are not too apprehensive. To have a perspective of the Gulf, come and climb the Wat Leu temple, and the time you visited the sunset if you want a real fear.
Outside the Kbal Chhay waterfall is the town and fishing village of Steung Hav, while the beaches, forests and mangroves of the Ream National Park, located 17 km to the east, is beautiful. If possible, please remain Monkey Maya, a beautiful collection that includes the Beachfront Ream bungalow.
There are also many opportunities to activate. You can see the field on horseback or follow the beaten paths (literally) on a dirt bike. The day trip around the island is very interesting, and if you snorkel or snorkel, there are many dive shops around Serendipity Beach Road. Otres Island 2, visitors can rent kayaks and paddle boards at Otres Boat Club.

What is the best place to dine?
Sandan, former employees of street children, serving an exciting cuisine of Cambodia. In the luxury hotels, Otres Tamu in the delicious dishes, 2 Otres in Otres 1, Papa Pippo's pizza is very delicious. The village of Otres is also a center of gastronomy, with vegan dishes created in Pacha Mama, French cakes and assorted Cambodian carrots in Sok Sabay and Italian food in the heart of Venice.
Surprisingly, the vegetarian place increasingly popular; Peace Café and outstanding leaders of life. If you're looking for something that's easily in the bag, the beach bars of Ochheuteal serve lunch for $ 5.
