Sihanoukville – the largest city on the coat – is a beach and port town, offering beach umbrellas and thatched roofed eateries, 24-hour bars and every thing from a laid back chair on the sand to an endless party vibe.
We begin with a departure (8.30 to 9.00 am depending on your hotel location) for Ream National Park outside Sihanouk Ville. Enjoy Ream National Park, explore the temples of Wat Ream, see the Huge Reclining Buddha, take a boat trip through mangrove forest chanels, a walking tour of the mountain to see the numerous animals and abundant plants.
The Preah Sihanouk "Ream" National Park is around 30 km from Sihanoukville, on the way back to Phnom Penh. It was established in the early 1990s to protect its threatend areas.
Ream Park is one of the seven national parks in the country. It encompasses over 15,000 hectares with mangrove forests, tropical jungles, and more then 150 bird species. It is also known for its monkey population.
The park has a marine habitat too, and aside from beaches, there are also boat trips being offered through mangrove forest chanels. Tourists can have a walking tour of the mountains and see the numerous animals and plant life. As this requires guests to trek through the jungle, good footwear is important.
Another site worth visiting while in the area is Wat Ream, the Buddhist temple there. There is a huge reclining Buddha and a great view from the top of the hill: for bird-watchers, the place is also perfect.
For fresh seafood, numerous food stands line the seaside along the park.
