Some of the reviews here are saying it's "the best roundabout in cambodia". But it's still a round about and it's not very exciting and not worth a visit. Just ride/walk past, look and then move on to the beach.

The lions are kitschy statues at the centre of a huge roundabout. You'll probably see them as the most traffic is passing them. At night many (drunk) people sitting around. Nothing really interesting.

hilarious lions, if you like kitsch, then they are for you. at the top of a road leading to a beach, they stand in the middle of a round about, you can't miss them

Look at the picture. That is all there is. Two lion statues in the middle of a roundabout. Nothing else there.

I wouldn't recommend coming to see this as it's just two golden lion statues in the middle of a huge roundabout. But, if your coming into town then it helps you figure out where you are.

Two 'golden' lions. Feel free to cross the busy road to take a picture with them. Not a ton of artistic merit so 2 minutes spend walking around them is enough. The restaurants nearby are a better use of your time.

It is a piece of history, acting as a landmark. You cannot miss it when you're in Sihanoukville. Good to see local kids hanging around this statue enjoying themselves too.

The only reason I'm reviewing this "attraction" - which is just a roundabout - is because if you are on a scooter, this is where police love to hang out and pull over tourists and fine for no reason. Please be careful, and make sure you are always wearing helmets, mirrors aren't cracked or anything. Even then, it may not... More

Cambodia has some good roundabouts, I rate this one just below the Giant durian in Kampot.. Very cool.

looking for a three minute reprieve this is just the activity. mainly for cyclists, trust me you really don't want to take a tuktuk till here. it's just a touch of the monuments in Sihanoukville and more of a welcoming sight than anything else.
