Located on the southeastern coast of Cambodia 230 km from the capital by road and four direct connection with the airport via Siem Reap, Sihanoukville is named after the father of the nation, King Norodom Sihanouk (contraction of Siha, lion, and Hanu, jaw). Its construction, begun by the French in order to develop a deep water port, began in 1955. After the end of French Indochina, which has resulted in the removal of access to the sea by the Mekong River, Vietnam has become independent, Cambodia would have such a port that was completed in 1960. Sihanoukville is also needed as the seaside city of Cambodia.

 This is the ideal place to take a little rest between visits.
