Updated on June 23, 2011

Cambodia has plenty of tourist places such as thousand of temple most are built-up in Siem reap, Waterfall, beach in Sihanouk province and other attractive place in each site of Cambodia. Now let me present about Sihanouk Province premier beach resort in Cambodia.

The province honors the name of King Norodom Sihanouk and  Sihanouk Province covers 868 square kilometers; it's just 185 km from Phnom Pench city are connected by the National Road 4. It consists of ninety-four villages, twenty-two communes and three districts. The province is processed by Sihanoukville International Airport, 18 kilometres (11 mi) from business district, although it has a limited commercial operation.

Today, Preah Sihanouk province is as much a beach town as it is a port town, catering to beach-going weekenders from Phnom Penh as well as a steadily interesting number of international visitors. Sihanoukville appeals tourists with its relaxed beach atmosphere when compared to Thailand's more developed ones. From the beaches and surrounding hills, many of the country's small islands can be found. A spread out tourist town for both foreigners and local people from all over the country. There are a few tour services in town, which offer guided tours by motorbike tours, Tuk Tuks (carts pulled by a motorbike), boat and car.

      Daravuthz - my husband was born in Cambodia and was airlifted out of the country in the middle of the night by the US Government in 1972 or 73. His parents did not make it out and he has never had the opportunity to make a return visit. His family lived in Phenom Phen. We do plan to visit there one day and I can't wait to show him your Hub as we will have some good info when we make a trip there. God Bless.
