  • Perhaps a good central for locals to enjoy their evening. Many bars and pubs surrounded.
  • The lion statues are nice but not really impressive. They are not very detailed though it's clear we're looking at a male and female lion. At night more impressive thanks to the lighting. Would be nice to know why the male lion had a ball or pearl in his mouth.
  • Historical ,with Two huge male and female lions,done in Gold paint , You can see this from all directions ,when traveling into Sihanoukville beach CAMBODIA . Best time for photos are both day and night .
  • The Lions are kinda funny. They are roped off so can't get close funny pics. Not a major attraction but cute.
  • The most well known landmark.. for foreigner there always police in this area.. they will caught you even when you not do anything wrong and ask for money. A streetfood near this area open in the evening and close in midnight.
