Things To Do In Sihanoukville

CambodiaSihanoukvilleThings To Do In Sihanoukville
  • The Cambodian Children’s Painting Project (CCPP) (On Serendipity Beach Rd). An NGO that helps disadvantaged Cambodian children. The youngsters collaborate with volunteers to make art, which is subsequently sold to benefit the children’s families and the initiative itself. Children are given access to schooling, painting supplies, sports activities, two meals a day, and medical and dental care as part of the programme. To deal with the children’s family, social workers are hired. You may contribute by volunteering, contributing painting supplies, purchasing a painting, donating money, or organizing an exhibition of children’s art.
  • Golden Spa & Massage (Opposite Monkey Republic),  +855 11 921110.Massages, manicure care, and body cleanses are all available.
  • Scuba Diving. There are several coral and fish-filled islands off the Cambodian coast. All diving boats depart from the harbor area of Sihanoukville. Scuba Nation PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Centre, the pioneers of diving in Cambodia, provides complete diving and snorkeling services, day excursions, liveaboards, nitrox, and a full spectrum of PADI courses from novice to instructor. The secret is flexibility: you may perform training sessions while visiting in Phnom Penh, then end with a liveaboard on Cambodia’s only custom-made diving boats. EcoSea Dive also provides SSI courses. Island Divers, the largest and newest diving center, has the largest boat, which has just been refurbished to accommodate divers. Angkor Dive is headquartered on Koh Rong Samloem and offers overnight visits to the island to not only dive but also experience life in a Khmer fishing hamlet. The primary scuba diving area is on Koh Rong Samloem Island, 23 kilometers offshore, and on Koh Tang Island, 56 kilometers from Sihanoukville. Overnight excursions are required to reach Koh Tang. There is also some shallow diving at Koh Tas, which is about 10 kilometers from Sihanoukville, although it is usually used when the weather is too harsh to go all the way to Koh Rung Sanloem. The greatest diving in Cambodia is found on overnight expeditions to the Koh Tang group, where giant pelagics may be seen on a regular basis and visibility is twice as good as at other spots. Two dive day excursions range from USD59 to USD85, while overnight vacations range from USD185 to $325 all included.
  • Snorkelling. Snorkeling is possible on most of the islands, with the finest visibility, reefs, and fish found on our outermost islands. Many eateries on Serendipity Beach promote a snorkeling tour for USD15, but most are unable to adequately describe what is included. Most will be the same tour organized by one of the travel agencies, which includes (basic) breakfast on the beach, two snorkeling stops, and a three-hour lunch break at Koh Russei (Bamboo Island). If you are serious about snorkeling, you should consider visiting one of the three scuba diving shops to verify you have the right equipment.
  • Unspoiled Island Day Trip. Aside from the exclusive Sokha Beach, finding a pristine and unspoilt beach near Sihanoukville is difficult, but may be found a couple of hours away on the island of Koh Rong Saloem. There are daily boats that may take you there in the morning, as well as one-day cruises that include snorkeling, fishing, lunch, and a light breakfast. This specific firm transports its guests to a 5 kilometer stretch of secluded beach. It’s operated by Robert, an extremely amusing and interesting German. On the island, there is additional lodging at Lazy Beach. EcoSea Diving also provides overnight excursions to Koh Rung Sanloem, where lodging is in modest basic huts. Unfortunately, the island is infested with sand flies. Get ready to get bitten. USD15.
