Sihanouville is located on the coast of Cambodia, about halfway between Thailand and Vietnam, on the Bay of Thailand. It’s locally known as Kampong Som. A spread out tourist town for both foreigners and local people from all over the country. Three sides of the town are bordered by tropical beaches and islands. Filled with empty beaches, crowded beaches, seafood, restaurants, bars, Buddhist Temples, casinos, hotels, and more beaches, the Sihanoukville is a colorful but tragic upstart in a land with thousands of years of history.
The distances between the beaches of Sihanoukville are a little too long to walk comfortably, but getting around is easy as the roads are wide and bike taxis (motodop) are everywhere.
The main reasons people come to Sihanoukville is the beaches. They are not as crowded as many of those in Thailand, by maybe cramped on weekends and holidays.
People can take part in many water sports like scuba diving, snorkeling, etc.
