Kbal Chhay Waterfall, Sihanoukville

3.4
#2 of 10 in Parks in Sihanoukville
A former hideout of the notorious Khmer Rouge, Kbal Chhay Waterfall today serves as a popular tourist destination and a clear water reservoir for the nearby town. The water gathers from several sources and cascades 14 m (46 ft) over multiple tiers. Take a dip in the refreshingly cool pool and the bottom of the waterfall, or buy some snacks from the local food stalls and find the perfect place for a picnic. The lush green area around the falls serves as a popular picnicking spot, but can also get quite messy with rubbish left behind by visitors. Work out when and for how long to visit Kbal Chhay Waterfall and other Sihanoukville attractions using our handy Sihanoukville trip planning tool.

  • Terrible place to visit. That too upon paying a fee. We were thirsty by the time we got here. So was the water-fall so much so that all the water fell before getting here. Do not visit  more »
  • Long drive on terrible roads, entry fee to get in to see them - and then they are terrible - no water and a compete waste of time!  more »

  • Experienced sexual harassment there by 2 men as 2 normally dressed western girls. Be careful!
  • If not for all the plastic and rubbish all over the place, this waterfall and it's surrounding would be a very beautiful place. Would not really recommend a visit, unless you're not bothered with the trash. The waterfall in Siem Reap is much cleaner
