“dirty and far”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2011

the place is full of garbage left by khmer holidaymakers. The road is bad and you risk a flat tire going there. If you're lucky enough not to have your tires punctured on the way, the guy at the small repairing stall near the parking place will flatten your tire while you are away to get a couple of bucks from you . The waterfalls are nothing special. They are not worth the trip.

“Great trip to take renting a motorcycle...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2010

Great trip to take renting a motorcycle. Will cost you 5 dollars a day and maybe another 3 or 4 in gas.

The waterfall itself was quite disappointing. The water seemed dirty and not tempting to swim in. It might be different during the wet season, we went in early March.

For those who enjoy the journey more than the destination its great, otherwise i would stay at the beach.

Parking costs 1,000 per bike and the entrance fee is 2 dollars, so i think for some travelers i might still be worth the money.

“Cool, Clear Waterfalls 20mins by Moto.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2010

If you're sick of the beach scene how about visiting the Kbal Chhay waterfalls?

Copy and paste the following Coordinates into google maps:
10.672754,103.608284

I initally travelled there on a hired motobike with a few khmer friends. The road is also accessible by normal 2WD car without any problems. As you travel out of Sihanouk heading to Phnom Penh on National Hwy 4 for about 15 minutes you'll see a sign on the road identifying the turnoff onto a gravel road. Follow the gravel road (you'll have to pay the park rangers about 5kms down the track an entrance fee, don't remember how much) to the end and you're there.

There's a parking area (you have to pay) and a small footbridge to reach the otherside of the stream (you have to pay again). Located there are some shelters and hammocks where you can relax.

I'd recommend to bring some ice or cold beer unless you enjoy warm beer. They have khmer food too (remember to ask the price or get them to write it down for you as I got stitched up). Alternatively bring your own snacks.

Pretty basic amemities as with all Khmer attractions but the waterfall and the scenery are well worth the trouble
