Sihanoukville is also fondly referred to as Kampong Som and is a province in southern Cambodia on the Gulf of Thailand. This beautiful port city and beach resort of Sihanoukville is bordered by stretches of whit sandy beaches and gorgeous undeveloped tropical islands.
Sihanoukville, named after a Cambodian king, was actually chopped out of a jungle in the late 1950s so Cambodia would get its first and only deep-water port. So there you have it, Sihanoukville is a perfect laid back locale bang in the lap of Mother Nature. Sadly, the transportation is a little weak, so tourists do not flock here in plenty.

Sihanoukville is a gorgeous fantastic place to be and is pretty reasonable. (more…)
