Sihanouk Ville, The Paradise Islands in Cambodia

Sihanouk Ville
This
is another post about tourist site in my country, Cambodia. Maybe you’ve
already heard about Sihanouk Ville or Kampong Som. This city was founded in
1964, located in the southern Cambodia coast on the Gulf of Thailand with the
borders of Koh Kong to the north and Kampot to the east. Now Sihanouk Ville is
the only international sea port in Cambodia. Beside this, it’s also considered as
a great exploring islands and it beaches have made it popular as a tourist
destination and the economic zone.
How to get to Sihanouk Ville?
From Phnom Penh to Sihanouk Ville is about 240km, most travelers
go there by bus, taxi, and motorcycle. Soon Cambodia will operate train line
from Phnom Penh to Sihanouk and that would be the great choice to travel by
train because the price also cheaper than bus or taxi. More addition to that,
you can view the spectacular scenery along the way such as the greenness rice
fields, corn farms, Khmer countryside villages, and wild animals etc. But for
now I suggest you to travel by bus because the road is in good condition and
the view is also great.
For foreigners who want to travel from Thailand to Sihanouk
Ville; Yeah, Had Lek international border crossing between Thailand and Koh
Kong is easiest way.
