  • Roundabout impressive toward which converge all the main arteries of the city. The moi.s gold enthroned in the middle are very symbolic, even if for their significance is only interpretation. Passage obliged so to do... and very good point of reference.

  • In the end it is a statue on a roundabout in Sihanoukville. I have more beautiful seen in Cambodia. Above all, it is strategically located for the police if you like or want to go to Otresbeach. If you have rented a scooter and blank are you have price. On the side and pay. . Corruption so ... Remember that you need no license under 125cc

  • 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
