Sihanoukville

Population: 200,000

Vibe: A chilled beach resort town.

Must Do: Drink a fresh Angkor Beer on the beach. Sihanoukville was founded in 1958 as the best location in the country to build a deep-water port, and the best water for making Angkor Beer. The French and the Cambodians cleared the forest and built a port and a brewery at the top of the hill.  Beer in Sihanoukville is so fresh that it can be less than 3 hours old, straight from the brewery!

Known for: Being the largest seaside town in Cambodia and the main port for visiting the islands of Cambodia.
