Just a crossing

Don't know what people expect, but this is just a roundabout with a statue in the middle. Some shops and restaurants around, good place to find a Tut Tut.

It is located in the middle of a traffic intersection. I am not sure of the history but it is unassuming. I passed it on a walk to Sokha and Independence beach

Just a couple of gold painted lions in a traffic circle. Happens to be a hallmark of the town. Worth a couple of pictures and then move on to the many bars and restaurants nearby. Enjoy the town.

Cambodia is full of ornate roundabouts and while Sihanoukville's main one is certainly impressive, I couldn't say that it rates as an attraction. It's worth a pic, if only for the size of the lions. At night, especially over festivals, it's lit up with fairy lights and there's the usual collection of balloon sellers around it, but this isn't a... More

Easy spot to meet up after a hard day at the beach etc. plenty of tuk-tuks around if you don't feel like walking home.

I think we missed the cultural significance. There is a male and female lion in the middle of the road. They are golden. Maybe just see them as you drive past?

Hmm, strange looking lions, no idea if there is any significance to them. The best thing is the locals who hang out there in the evenings, even though a round about is an unusual location to socialize.

This is just a round about with a fold statue in the middle. Traffic is crazy and all around is polluted , dirty and westernized trashy places. No need to go visit it. If you are passing by just focus on not getting ran over.

As another reviewer stated, the artistic value of this statue is pretty low and it is situated in the city center in the middle of a traffic round-a-bout circle, so you must be very careful if you want to take a closer up photo of the lions. Fortunately, the round-a-bout is normally not very busy which makes crossing the road... More
