Kbal Chhay Waterfall, Sihanoukville

3.4
#2 of 7 in Parks in Sihanoukville
A former hideout of the notorious Khmer Rouge, Kbal Chhay Waterfall today serves as a popular tourist destination and a clear water reservoir for the nearby town. The water gathers from several sources and cascades 14 m (46 ft) over multiple tiers. Take a dip in the refreshingly cool pool and the bottom of the waterfall, or buy some snacks from the local food stalls and find the perfect place for a picnic. The lush green area around the falls serves as a popular picnicking spot, but can also get quite messy with rubbish left behind by visitors.

    In one of the hot days we decided to supplement the usual trip to the sea. Cool place. Here you can even spend a whole day. Equipped with a sitting area, you can rent hammocks and dais with bedding. Basically there were of course local, since we came in Saturday. Many places to eat! Clean and cool water! Very refreshing! Lived closer, went increasingly)

    I recommend going in July when the weather is decent most of the times, and the water levels are high. The falls makes quiet a view then. A tip is to go to the right when arriving before the entrance,...  more »

    We have read previously that much and everyone writes here of extreme garbage. We have made us impression of happiness itself. It costs $1 per adult. But not more than anything is some garbage in Asia also common. Drive a week out and not on the weekend, then less is going on. It is gorgeous there. We have seen numerous waterfalls on our trip around the world and this was the best by far.

    Good day trip. Take a car tuk tuk or taxi. The roads are rough. At the waterfall area, there are shops where you can buy food, swimming suits and drinks. Bought swimming shorts for $2.5! Grab a seat and enjoy food, drinks, and the soothing sound of water. Or, put on swimming trunks and hop in. It's also a pretty decent place for photos who do long exposure landscapes.

    Great waterfall with fresh water. Good time to visit here is around May. If you come here at dry season there're will be not enough water to play. This place is really popular for local people and tourism.
