In Kompong Som Area of control/area of land, Sihanoukville is a story of two halves, with ahurrying/very busy but dull central district and its shoreline area home to a full of life beachresort. The beaches here are Cambodia’s top destination for sand and sun holidays and arepopular with both local and foreign tourists. There’s something for every kind of beach-goerhere. Sokha Beach and Independence Beach brag the (expensive and desirable) hotels. Bold and rude Ochheuteal Beach and the Luck Beach area are the most popular sandy strips and over the last few years have come out as one of Southeast Asia’s traveler (on foot, with a backpack) partyareas. For a much quieter scene, just to the south is Otres Beach with beach huts huddleddirectly on the sand, a sprinkling of classy fancy (store) hotels, and some up-and-comingrestaurants.
