Sihanoukville is Cambodia’s major coastal resort town. The town centre itself is very popular with tourists from mainland China, less so with tourists from other parts of the world. Sihanoukville town centre has lots of casinos, hotels and restaurants which cater almost exclusively to Chinese tourists and the city’s large Chinese ex-pat community thought to number in the tens of thousands. Non-Chinese tourists tend to prefer the areas away from the city centre and the islands off the coast. Most non-Chinese visitors do little more in the town centre than pass through. The only tourist attraction of interest in the city itself is Wat Leu, which is a Buddhist temple on a hill with good views.
Sihanoukville has a number of beaches, which are referred to by different names according to which travel guide you read. The busiest beach is Ochheuteal Beach, which is sometimes described as being two beaches (Serendity Beach and Ochheuteal Beach). Ochheuteal Beach is near the city centre and the ferry pier for Koh Rong and Koh Rong Sanloem. This beach also has the liveliest bars. A more popular option, particularly for younger travellers, is to head out of the city centre to Otres Beach, the western part of which is called Otres 1 and then Otres 2 as you go eastwards. Otres Beach is a narrower beach with less development on the beach front. This is the area you find the best value beach bungalow resorts and most of the non-Chinese tourists that come to Sihanoukville. The beach is also popular with Cambodian holiday makers who turn up in large extended family groups bringing their own food and beer. Otres Beach is a pleasant and inexpensive place to stay which some holidaymakers really enjoy, although in high season it attracts large numbers of younger tourists and is no longer the peaceful easygoing destination that made in popular a decade ago.
