We stopped at the Wat Krom Temple and marveled at the beauty of the site. Initially you see isolated stupas (where the deceased are honored) and then you travel up the road to see other sites, including a great view of the city from above.

Sihanoukville is an amalgam of contrasts (from dusty city streets to the calm of different temples) - don't be put off by the city streets and all the dirt. This is a city in transition and it will be interesting to see it in 2 - 3 years. The people seem particularly industrious and energetic.

We went to the Wat Krom Temple as part of an excursion from Viking cruise. We were treated to a performance of traditional dance with explanation about the hand movements. It was very interesting and they got the group involved in the dancing as well. Outside are many statues of Buddha and our guide explained the different aspects of Buddha’s life. We did not see any monks or monkeys. Our guide told us that people are still wary of the monks since they were involved with the Khmeer Rouge. Sihanoukville is very dilapidated and the people live in horrible conditions. We were very taken aback. Apparently these poor people are now being taken advantage of by the Chinese who are building sub-standard roads and buildings several of which have collapsed.

Like everything in Sihanoukville it's dirty, under construction and looks like they don't care much about it. Would be nice if local government focus on the important things and not only in building casinos like a game...

Several buildings, some still under construction. No great statues. Poor dirt roads to get here, along with lots of trash.

Monkeys and kids - what a terrible place to be visiting. Terrible roads to get there and nothing but rubbish everywhere.

Our visit included a dance by a local cultural group. Many monks on site, as well as many children who were begging for money. Would have liked to spend more time at this site but we were limited to 1 hour.

Cambodian take on Buddhism, with touches we have not yet seen: golden statues not just of the Buddha, but of horsemen, warriors and other figures. Inside the temple sits what we have dubbed the NRA Buddha. Much construction mess and awful restrooms.

Visited Wat Krom Temple as part of a trip from a cruise ship. Yes there are works going on there but I particularly enjoyed the fact that this was a local working temple. I feel the comments above re: beggars etc are unwarranted as this is a third World country and is to be expected the people are very poor. I think when all the works are completed it will be beautiful. The statues outside the temple are amazing and the drawings on the walls inside going back to Indian history/religion were very intricate perhaps it helped that we had a tour guide to explain all this to us. Well worth a visit but like most of Cambodia the infrastructure is poor.

With the dirt and devastation evident in this area Cambodia, it was great to get away and see this temple. We jumped on a tuk tuk to get here as it’s slightly out of the way but gives a good experience of a working temple. Entry is free and in return they just ask for respect when walking around.
