The motorcycle is the most convenient and cheapest way to make a trip around the region. To attain as many spots as possible, you should start off in the morning. Plan a list of your destinations to beaches, streets of a local house, vocational villages, and the high hill for catching the whole city view. The motorcycle rental fee is rather cheap, about 5$ per day (the fuel on you).

Go Boating to the Island

Sihanoukville consists of 2 big main islands and a much smaller one, because of its distance to the land, it somewhat doesn’t have that bustle-hustle rhythm like in the city. It focuses on developing tourism, which brought us well services and the most comfortable vacation.
