Sihanoukville Cambodia's hidden secret

Recommended Posts

Sihanoukville Cambodia's hidden secret

 

 

Sihanoukville is a beach in Cambodia which is a big party beach during peak season

i use to go to beach party's in Thailand such as phuket but stop going there because of the rise in price and because it has pretty much turned into Bondi beach

if i wanna go to Phuket i may as well just drive my ass to Bondi beach its pretty much the same shit

Sihanoukville is pretty much what Phuket use to be like 20 years ago its only just started to get popular every time i go back the place has newer and bigger hotels

they now have a decent road from Cambodia's capital phnom penh but they have also built a air port in sihanoukville so u can get a direct flight straight there from Bangkok

 

if any one wants any details of what is a good place to stay just let me know

ive been to this place 3 times now, there is a really good hotel right on the beach

its also a very cheap place to go !!! a 5 star hotel will range from $25US a night to $35US a night depending on when u go ( peak season your looking at paying $35 a night )

 

Also if u go during peak season aka party season it's very easy to pick up a job at one of the bars and u get a free place to stay, free food and free drinks in return

Just allows you to extend you travels

 

each bucket contains 7 shots + what ever u want mixed in with it and each bucket is $5US $10US

 

ive got plenty more photos but this will do for now

Gives u an idea of what the place is like

 

ill just upload these for now to give u an idea of what type of place it is

Yeah I was eating Asian food mostly

I posted those pics for the white people on here

I love rice paper rolls ( the fresh summer rolls ) I was eating them every day

 

Yeah I said it's getting more touristy I don't mind as long as the prices dont sky rocket

Gotta say man, thanks for recommending Sihanoukville! We weren't going to head there on our trip but ended up going there just for 2 nights. Awesome place that! Really chilled back little beach town, everything is cheap as hell (well all of cambodia is really). We stayed at literally the closest place on Serendipity Beach and our room was the closest one to the beach (probably 5 or so steps to the sand) for about $20 a night. there was definitely cheaper places but was happy to pay it for that place. Walk along the beach for dinner and they all have a BBQ type setup. $3 for a plate full of food and 50c tap beer for happy hour. Funny thing about happy hour is it goes for about 4 or 5 hours, and when it's not happy hour they will be more than happy to give it to you for that price anyway!

 

I reckon Sihanoukville will become more main soon, apparently they are building an airport there and there seemed to be alot of new buildings popping up when we were there

 

Only problem we had was with beggars. Couldn't have a nice meal on the beach without amputees constantly coming up, ladies carrying their babies up asking for money, "manicure", "massage", "bracelet!", "sunglasses!", "firework!" or kids wanting the food off your plate (I couldn't let them eat my "happy" pizza could I? haha)

 

 

EDIT: Hmm, looks like it already has an airport? Not too sure what the locals were on about then!

With the beggars u don't give them any thing other wise more and more of them will annoy u

I've learnt how to deal with them

When I went there my first time I felt just like u but now they don't bother me at all

Just say no and if they dont go away, go speak to one of the staff that work there and they will tell them to move away

Pretty simple after a while they will remember who u are and they will just stay away

 

There is an air port there now as well and huge hotels

 

I was there for peak season which is party season

Wet t shirt comps nearly every night !!!

 

 

This is where I stayed

Right near the beach and bars

Edit

Oh i just remembered a story about the happy pizza's

These 2 old English ladys about 60 years old have been drinking bottles and bottles of piss all day and then they ordered a happy pizza

When I returned the both of them were out cold

U don't eat a happy pizza after drinking piss all day that shit will **** you up!!

 

I remember once this amputee came up and asked for money and while he was asking he had a smoke in his hand and I thought if u have money to smoke u have money to eat so I said no and to go away and he leaves and goes to annoy some one else and the other person hands him a ciggie instead and the amputee didn't even take the ciggie the picky beggar

 

Those ladys that carry babies , I call them rent a-babies because I swear I see different ladys carrying the same babies

Hopefully now Cambodia doesn't get ruined like how all these white people ruined Thailand

It's going to happen sooner or later every time I go back there it gets worst an worst

Take a look at the photos the place was full of white people but i dont mind I like how white people party

It's like Thailand but 20 years ago give it time and it will be the same sort of shit

Basically when that happens I'll find a new place to go and I've already got one beach town in mind ;) It's still in Cambodia but it's not main yet

Yeh we never ended up giving any money to people. By that point in the trip we were pretty used to beggars everywhere.

 

Got told by a fag / ladyboy kid (probably like 14 or or so) that we were "stupid f**king *milkshakes*" and "hope that your plane crashes and you die when you go home" and "get the f**k out of my country" because my misso wouldn't buy a bracelet off him... one of the staff ended up coming over and asking if we wanted them to piss off. Just said no to the rest then kept talking nad ignored them.

 

 

This place that you stayed:

I'm pretty sure it's the same place we stayed! Looks a fair bit different now though. Prety sure the room on the left in that pic is the room we had. RIght at the end of the road heading down to the beach? "Meng Leng Beach Bungalows" was what ours was called pretty sure its the same.

 

This is from our door, then a few steps on to the beach

Nice beach to chill and have a relaxing dinner at night too

I stayed at leng Meng before tho

 

I think I know which kid your talking about because me and my mrs got into a fight with one as well

and It was worst because my mrs knows how to swear in Cambodian

She just knows the swear words lol

It was so funny seein this white Aussie girl swearing in Cambodian

 

Oh almost forgot

I met this English guy while I was there

Became good mates anyways he got real drunk and full started making out with her/he

The next day we all told him and even till now his Facebook page is covered with ladyboy lover comments

 

 

 

speaking about gay boys, lady boys

i was relaxing on the beach with one of my mates ( white guy ) and during peak season people walk around the beach handing out flyers to try and get people to come to the club/bar which they work for

anyways this got handed out to my mate :lol: most likely because he was with an asian guy at the time ( probably thought he went to Sihanoukville for cheap gay bum sex )
