The Lions are impressive but beware the police are pretty heavy around this intersection and we got pulled over on our bikes. They tried to bully us but we had been warned so knew how to respond. Still paid a fine for nothing but only a few aussie dollars. Make a point of getting the right info if on bikes.... More

In the middle of a busy intersection, not much to see. You don't need to make a detour to see it, most likely you'll hit it on the way to somewhere in that area

This is the big roundabout in the middle of this town. The statue is impressive and I have to say the golden lion has the biggest balls I have ever seen!!

Yes many say this is just a roundabout and it's just a pair of golden lion (and ugly too) but this actually signifies and represents Sihanoukville. Like in many language (spelling might differ) Siha means lion and Nouk here means Jaw. This little "Lion's Jaw Ville" is a lovely stop over for many tourists!

Two lions sitting in the middle of a round about step up take a photo your done . If your a traveller beware when driving around it. Local police officers will pull u over as u have no where to go. If you driving a vehicle you have to supply an international drivers license or pay "a fine" in cash... More

How is this a thing? We this is literally a roundabout with a statue in the middle of it. How this is a must do thing here is beyond me. Stop looking at the bloody lion and get to the beach!

Quite well done and a good place to see & talk to the locals hanging out with their kids in the early evening.

These are without doubt the best pair of lions I've ever seen. The view from behind especially is an inspiration, a must see.

We were a bus load of cruise passengers driving around the roundabout so everyone that wants to can get a picture or two of this artwork.

These lions look great. I stay near there and walk past often, and I always stop to admire them. In the evening the locals hang out, and some tourists take photos.
