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.

  • Water is low now but dry season has started!!, still good because you can get to little pools and other areas you cannot get to or see during the monsoon wet season as it's far to dangerous and the cu...  more »
  • In terms of attractions in Sihanoukville waterfall bad, because there is little to see! Admission is $1. Not far away, we took a bike and rode, but one feature is a Khmer red Road. As a result, dust and naglotalis were all dirty, it's better to go by car or if you passed a good rain. Cafes there expensive, better take a snack.

  • By tuk - tuk, they will cost around $ 20 from Sihanoukville but worth the trip. A nice place very popular with Cambodians who come to spend the weekend where everyone bathes, eat, rest in hammocks. You pay a toll on the road of one dollar per person then 500 riels per person to cross the small bridge that will take you to the waterfalls and to the small restrurants. To do!

  • 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.
  • The forest around here should be protected to serve visitor for long term tourism site.
  • Dirty water.. dirty area.. need regulation for the tourist that come to this area.. actually great place but become worst because no one take care
  • Good place but not many things available up there.
  • 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.
