  • The lions are lions in 'gold', without much interest but around this square are full of Cambodian explorers below. On the top, you will have plenty of restaurants enough classes, but also the street of Serendipity are concentrated where all restaurants tourists roots-connected with a lot of atmosphere the night, happy hours, hotel dorms, parties Dj and also the tumultuous Serendipity beach at night! Choose your preferred place at the start of the Golden lion square!

  • 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
