Life

Sihanoukville in Cambodia, it is above all the white sand beaches and crystal clear ocean and palm trees at 4am the capital Phnom Penh. A seaside break before or after the discovery of the Kingdom of Cambodia.
Shaded beaches equipped for rest, relaxation and idleness. These beaches gently fall into the ocean with transparent blue waters, unpolluted trash or other waste. Sun umbrellas and chairs (not paid), many shelters in huts and small restaurants serving fresh fish, complete these little-known beaches of the great tourism and occupied only on weekends by residents of Phnom Penh. Several hotels of all categories will provide you with quality accommodation. An ideal place to relax and swim safely.
Sihanoukville Province is a small province in southern Cambodia. The capital city is located on a peninsula with beaches and tropical islands around. Sihanoukville (also known as Kampong Som) was founded in 1964 to be the only deep water port in the whole of Cambodia. It has gradually redeveloped as a tourist attraction, but despite the promise of massive investment in Malaysia from several casinos including one on the island of Naga, the number of tourists is still quite low.
As the city is not a small place because of its wide distribution in urban areas, the best way to get around is to rent a bike. Besides the beautiful beaches and beautiful views it must be stressed that there is not much to see in the city itself. To have a beautiful view of the city you can climb the small hill to Wat Leu. Wat Krom is another place of interest, because it is a recent construction Pagoda, the oldest were destroyed by the Khmer Rouge and is home to a sanctuary called Yeah Mao. Near the town there are nice places for a detour as Ream National Park and Kbal Chhay Waterfall beautiful.

After spending Kampot, then you will catch a road that winds through the dense jungle of Bokor National Park. The road is very good, but its history is much less; hundreds of forced laborers died during the construction of the road during the First World War. You finally reach the top of the big hill and discover the remains of Bokor Palace, a luxury hotel built by the French in 1925, now in ruins. The sight of the lush jungle rolling down the coast below is amazing.
