It's a golden lion on a roundabout...

I mean. It's a nice decorative roundabout but at the end of the day, it's still just a fairly large and busy roundabout. If you're visiting Sihanoukville, you probably can't miss it (as you have to pass it to go to Serendipity beach etc) but I wouldn't get too worked up about detouring for this 'attraction'.

This gigantic statue of a lion and a lioness all covered in gold paint is located on a central round about. It is a tourist attraction as it is well presented with some cambodian architectural ornate pillars sourrounding it. It is something to admire. Some locals have expressed that this monument has some reference to the cultural life of the... More

If you are thinking of renting a moped in Sihanoukville be aware of the Police, they have set up a permanent tourist trap at the Golden Lions roundabout, if they see that you are not a local, then you are fair game, if you are passing through, try not to make eye contact with them, and if you hear there...

A good landmark and that's about it. It is just a traffic circle after all, don't plan your visit to Sihanoukville around seeing this "attraction".

Fantastic piece of public art. Pretty sure the artist must have been aware of the connotations of viewing this pair of lions from certain angles.

All this is is a statue in the roundabout, but watch out because the police were here all 3 days I went past trying to drag people into the side to most probably make a quick dollar! Wear helmet, have light off and when they try pull you over just keep driving. They won't bother chasing you

Nice sculptures but they are on a busy main road and just a round about really - do not plan a trip to see them!

This is in the middle of a big round-about. Gaudy statues surrounded by lots of traffic and trash. It may be a symbol of the city but it all gets lost with the trash, cars and bustle of being in the middle of the intersection. We were not impressed.

Well, for most part, this is the symbol of Sihanoukville. Only some minutes away on foot from the beach.
