History Of Sihanouk Ville:

With no proper waterways, it wasn’t a decent place to trade and it wasn’t until the Cambodia Independence in 1954 that a port was even built here. It was once a sleepy little backpacker town. It was put on the traveler route in the late 90s, with beautiful sandy beaches and small-town vibes. It grew in popularity with a steady stream of travelers, and soon enough many tour companies started taking their guests there as well.
In 2019, the construction was at its peak, and quite a few of the buildings had been finished during the pandemic, later, and were now opened for businesses.
Nowadays, Sihanouk Ville is as much a beach town with a deep water autonomous port for tourists cruise ships from a cross the world to dock and tour, on beach catering for beach-going weekenders – locals and expats from Phnom Penh as well as a steadily increasing number of international tourists who continue looking for beach vacation and retreat “beach lovers”, for their refreshment and energize their paces of lives.
