  • This place is very important in sihanouk village, people easy to know sihanouk province.
  • Police spot, this is where the place Cambodian police catch the tourist motobiker. Helmet,slow drive..doesn't matter...always catch the tourist and ask money. Usually 1 usd... just pretending you do not know anything... will ask you 10 box
  • Nearby golden lion there are many restaurants and local foods stalls good foods and reasonable price.
  • Beautiful, must checkout if you're in Sihanouk ville, be aware of police tho.
  • As previously noted this is a hub of local police shakedowns of foreign tourists for trumped up traffic infractions. Usually from $3 to $10 USD. Avoid the area between 12 and 5 PM
