As my guide told me Sihanoukville got this name , which was named in honor of former king Norodom Sihanouk.

Don’t want to hide this fact that Sihanoukville also faces extreme challenges related to crime, security and safety with the city frequently being the focus of scandals linked to serious organized crime, petty crime and corruption.

I saw a lot of children begging in temples and beaches. In the beach I saw a lot of massage girls who come to you and ask for foot massage.

If you want to taste octopus the beach is right place to be i tried my very first octopus in this beach. the price is 2 for 1$. Pretty cheap huh !!!

Food is also tasty in the beach I tried chicken soups and chicken rice. If you want to know better it’s always a good idea to have a guide with you.

Cambodia is also famous for Angkor Wat temple but sadly I never got a chance to be there. If you get the chance to visit Angkor Wat, Please must visit the temple as it is biggest Hindu temple in the world.
