Sihanoukville Travel Guide

Sihanoukville Guide:


With its beaches and casinos, Sihanoukville is primarily a tourist attraction, albeit one with an industrial deep water port. Because of the tourist industry the town of some 250,000 people has a more lighthearted flavour to it than Phnom Penh

Situated on the eastern part of the Gulf of Thailand, Sihanoukville is a peninsula and has several beaches and small, offshore islands. It was founded in 1964 and is much more urban and modern than other Cambodian cities. .

Considering the modest amount of visitors Sihanoukville has that town features more than ample hotels, restaurants and bars. With its five beaches and three islands to relax on, Sihanoukville provides a peaceful counterpoint to Thailand's sometimes crowded beaches. Sihanoukville's Cambodian name is Kampong Som.

Beaches:


SihanoukVille Cambodia Beach Resorts

SihanoukVille, Cambodia. South-East Asia's Premier beach destination.

Cambodian beaches, islands, seafood, culture and hospitality. It's all here.

SihanoukVille, named after King Sihamoni's Father, King Sihanouk, has grown from a sleepy Cambodian seaside town, into Cambodia's second biggest city.

While still in it's infancy, SihanoukVille now features a handful of world class luxury beach resorts, island resorts and hotels. It's also South-East Asia's newest cruise destination.

Winter, from the beginning of November until the end of February, is the best time of year here. Not too hot, and perfect weather most days. March 'till the end of June is a bit cloudy, hot, with some rain. July 'till the end of October.... rain.

The airport isn't running, and the golf courses haven't come yet, however, it's a great time to visit SihanoukVille. The town still hasn't been spoiled by rampant tourism, and the islands are just opening up to visitors. The town is growing very fast, so now is the perfect time to come visit SihanoukVille!

Considering the moderate number of visitors to Sihanoukville, the town offers a surprising number and variety of restaurants and bars. 

Fresh seafood, especially crab, prawns and ocean fish, has always been one of the town's biggest draws, but there is also a wide variety of places offering foreign cuisines - Australian, French, Indian, German, Sri Lankan, British, Italian, pizza places, a couple of western bakeries and even a espresso coffee shop.

And these days Sihanoukville offers a pretty good night life as well with a wide variety of bars staying open well into the wee hours, especially on Weather Station Hill, in the downtown area, and the beach bars on Ochheuteal, ‘Serendipity’ and Victory Beaches
