Finally the sun came out & we managed to briefly top up our tan. We stayed in Otres beach, a 15 minute drive from Sihanoukville town center.
Sihanoukville or ‘Snooky’ as the locals call it is a bit of a sh*t hole tbh. One half has a nice beach at Otres, the other is basically a building site. The Chinese have fled here, not only just for tourism but for investing too. The infrastructure being built consists of casinos, hotels & strip clubs, all aiming at a Chinese customer base. Local Cambodians & tourists definitely aren’t welcoming of the Chinese take over & most people we met only said bad things. I really don’t know what it will be like once everything is built but for now it’s not a pleasant place & doesn’t represent Cambodia.
We were lucky enough to experience the most amazing sunset! This probably was the only highlight of Sihanoukville 😂 It is a place that you have to experience your self, just remember to bring your flip flops & a hard hat 👷🏻♂️.
