Day trips near SihanoukVille

Golden Lions

A day or less

There's a few places to see outside of town that take a day or less to see.  You can leave for most destinations in the morning and return to your hotel by late afternoon.  Check out the SihanoukVille Tours page also.

Steung Hauv
Steung Hauv is a fishing community about an hour outside of town.  There's no guesthouses there and very few places with menu's in English, so it's the perfect getaway into the real Cambodia.  You can easily get lost going around Steung Hauv, but there's only one road in and out, so you can't get lost very far.  

Some activities in Steung Hauv are eating the fresh seafood, watching the boat builders, and just driving or walking around town. There is a central market, but not too much there.  To get to Steung Hauv, take a car or motorcycle past the port, to the end of the road; about 20 minutes past the port.  At the end of the road, you must turn right onto a dirt road.  Take this road another 20 or 30 minutes, and you're there.

It's important to get back to the port area before dark, as there are no lights on the road.

Ream National Park
Ream Park covers mountains and the beaches on the road going back to Phnom Penh.  The park service offers tours and can be contacted at the entrance of the park. Many beach huts line the beach offering fresh seafood. Boats can be hired to take island trips.

And Wat Ream (a Buddhist Temple) has some good views as well as a giant reclining Buddha on top of the hill. It's also one of the best places for bird watching around.  Check out the Ream Park Page.

Kampot & Kep
Kampot & Kep are small towns about 1.5 hours outside town, near the Vietnam border.  You can either make it a day trip, or there are many guesthouses and bungalows available.  

The nearer town is Kampot.  Kampot is usually the starting point for tours to Bokor Mountain, (temporarily closed for the next few years).  Kampot is a very quiet town, divided by a river. Kep is an even quieter seaside town.  

and More
If you rent your own motorcycle, (or motorcycle taxi), you can tour around the hills of SihanoukVille.  It's easy to get lost, and easy to get found.  There's only one road out of town, so you can't get lost too far.  Kbal Chay waterfall is a half day trip, a half hour outside of town.  Lots of rocks to climb on in the winter, lots of water in the summer.   Stray Dog dirt bike tours can get you around town, or around the country and beyond, as well
