Kbal Chhay Waterfall, Sihanoukville

3.5
#2 of 8 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.

  • Interesting mix of enjoying nature amidst jerry built brick and concrete walkways, rest areas and retaining walls. Nevertheless it is a good place to cool off on a hot day.
  • A beautiful place to come and enjoy the nature. There are some shops to eat and relax. $5 enterance fee.
  • Waterfalls are nice. But place is way overcrowded and to focused on ripping off tourists. They have put checkpoint on the road that charges a buck per tourist... free for locals. Then bunch of ladies force selling junk. Prices are inflated on everything. Not coming back...
  • Interesting place. Nice thing that you can chill in hammock, when it is too hot.
  • nice place to visit, some shops where you can buy some souveniers, or eat. Not too much plastic around. Prices are a little bit higher then usual but not absolutely overpriced. The road to the waterfall is quite scenic, easy to ride in the dry season.
