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.

  • I've only been once but me and my friend were the only westerners which was cool. They were having a New Year festival and it was a very happy atmosphere with a real community spirit.  more »

  • Beautiful waterfalls. Unfortunately, it started raining so couldn't really spend long time there. Locals really need to start respecting places and not leave trash around. $1 pp entrance fee on the road.
  • The attraction itself is great. If you order cooked food from the mum and papa kitchens ensure you ask how much everything is as they will burn you and charge Hilton Hotel prices come checkout. As usual in Cambodia the beer is never cold. If you're serious, bring your own in a cooler to save disappointment.
  • I went on a Monday morning and it was quiet and relaxing. I paid a usd$1 entrance plus a 500r while walking into the falls. Well worth visiting as the water is cool and relaxing
  • Lovely place to hang out and endulge some pic nic food. You can even have a swim in the river. Downside is the trash laying all around.
  • Very nice waterfalls. Good for relaxing, playing with water or taking pics.
