Sihanoukville Landscape: The Portrait Signed by Nature

If it is asked to pick only one thing that would make Sihanoukville one amazing destination to cherish a vacation, it would be, certainly, its untamed and unique natural beauty. For those who find beauty in simplicity and authenticity, this is the place to come.


In comparison to other busy and buzzing beaches at the nearest distances, Sihanoukville truly represents the simple and serene nature of Cambodia. Since it is the place where most people come for sightseeing, it is barely needed to mention how beautiful the landscape is. Many tourists have described the scenes to be like hand-painted masterpieces, exclusively by God Himself. Those who might find the expression a bit of an exaggeration; can see for themselves if that is true!


Sihanoukville has a long list of beaches to offer to its tourists to relax and bask in the laps of the nature. The combination of refreshing blue and lively green creates the greatest escape to surrender to. Along with the beaches, the Ream National Park and several waterfalls complete the platter for a traveler seeking to relish all the beauty-spots nature has to offer in one place. It is true that some might find getting to Sihanoukville a bit difficult, but it is worth the shot, no doubt.


Along with the jewels the nature has to offer, one of the key attractions in Sihanoukville would be the golden statutes of a male and female lion, in the stature of roaring to let people know that it is their land! Both local and foreign tourists find this dynamic statue one of the best things to take photos with. In the upcoming days, it might become the landmark for Sihanoukville, like the Lady Liberty or Mermaid Lions of Singapore, who knows!


Nature has hand-picked only the marvelous splendor for Sihanoukville to embellish the place. The people here are also offering their best efforts to keep and enhance the gifts of Mother Nature to represent their little, yet wonderful homeland to the world like a precious princess.
