  • Two huge lions who are company on the round point of the tourist area of sihanoukville.

  • When you get to Sihanoukville, from anywhere, you have to pass around a large roundabout on which half a dozen streets. In the middle of the roundabout have laid the golden statues of two lions clearly visible from the distance. I don't know if these lions want to represent something, but surely they are a single point of contact, as a km more in there is another roundabout with a swordfish. Because they consider as an attraction, I don't know--anyway, check two balls

  • A roundabout where you gather them all before they start the evening. Is very Chinese and tacky. inevitable though. From this roundabout way.

  • 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
