Cambodia’s best beach destination
Bordered on three sides by tropical beaches and islands, Sihanoukville is Cambodia’s most recognised seaside town. It’s located approximately halfway between Thailand and Vietnam on the Bay of Thailand and surrounded by clear water and stretches of golden beach. A Sihanoukville holiday is the perfect way to unwind after touring the other highlights of Cambodia, like the vast temples at Angkor Wat.
With their pristine beaches and azure waters, the islands close to the town are becoming increasingly popular. There’s been a spate of international hotel brands opening here, including the Six Senses and Alila in 2017. They’re often located on private islands offering sumptuous accommodation and complete privacy.
There’s something for all tastes on a Sihanoukville holiday, with restaurants here offering a variety of cuisines. We especially recommend the locally caught seafood available at a superb choice of cafes. Other attractions include the bustling casinos and the colourful Buddhist temples dotted around the city.
