Sihanoukville on the Cambodian coast
Sihanoukville Cambodia Coast is about 3 hours by bus from Phnom Penh. We were sad to leave the city however with the high May temperature we were looking forward to relaxing on the beach while sipping on a few cold beers.
Nice sand & lots of activity
The beaches were more crowded than usual due to a public holiday. Never the less it was great to enjoy the casual atmosphere and sea breeze.
Public holiday to celebrate the Kings birthday.
One of the many beach bars.
Lots of casual bars along the beach where you can get a nice cold beer.
Old boat in Sihanoukville
Sihanoukville was the place of the last official battle of the United States Army in the Vietnam War, although the incident took place outside Vietnam. The Mayaguez incident of 12–15 May 1975 involved US forces and the Khmer Rouge. Currently, divers at Koh Tang, one of the Sihanoukville islands where the major battle to free the USS Mayaguez took place, can see two shipwrecks on the sea floor 40 metres (130 ft) down.

Reminds me of Pattaya 30 years ago.
Nice beach with fine white sand.
I need to visit again soon, maybe late 2017.

Ziggy was running a small hotel in Sihanoukville in the town center, next time I return I will stay on the beach.
My main impression of Sihanoukville is don’t expect too much in the way of luxury unless you check into an upmarket hotel, just enjoy the casual atmosphere and super low prices compared with other Asian countries.
