  • It's public area. Nice view then you can see two Lion here. It's the symbol of Seihanoukville, Cambodia.
  • Looks good and has a lot of places to choose to eat from, but crazy traffic and scary to walk.
  • Love this place during the night time hours. Was 10PM and the place was full of locals and visitors. Plenty of restaurants and street venders for food. The smell of fresh cooked BBQ was amazing here. This is a must visit destination for for. The beaches near this place is as well was great.
  • Two veey large gold lions in the big roundabout centre in sihanoukville . Pretty impressive.
  • Market has great food and drink, cheap options for dining and drinking. Apothecary here is expensive, downtown has cheaper ones.
