Kbal Chhay Waterfall, Sihanoukville
(3.5/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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. Plan to visit Kbal Chhay Waterfall during your Sihanoukville vacation using our convenient Sihanoukville trip itinerary builder.

  • We took the ride on scooter and would recommend that it not be taken in a normal TukTuk. The road is extremely bumpy, and we then part turiste be shaken thoroughly. Select one of the TukTuk-cars and not one of them which is pulled by motorcycle. Really nice nature experience despite the fact that the place is marred slightly by garbage and tourists

  • 1$ Entry Fee. (Must be for road maintenance?) Unfortunately there is a lot of trash in some areas, and none of the hundreds of shop owners are interested in getting off of their lazy asses to clean it up. There are a few efforts made here and there to try to contain the pollution, but it's really a bit of a show. It's a nice place, and the water is beautiful, but I'm not sure it's worth supporting as it feels like they don't really care and all they see from foreigners is walking dollar bills. Lots of food vendors etc, but you even have to pay to use a toilet.
  • 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.
  • Although this attraction is mentioned on all of the tourist information, it's not that easy to get to by independent means. We took a motorcycle from the town towards the airport past the Ankor brewery and Crown can factory. Look out for the turn on yhe left not well signposted. Then about 8km up an unsurfaced road. Charge 1 $ entrance but well worth it. Could be disappointing in dry season.
  • Nice waterfall, refreshing water, fare off the mainroad, I rented a motorcycle to reach it. Although a lot of trash... Seems to be a local picnic place.
  • Nice view. Since it's the rainy season it was flooded and it added up to the attraction
