Sihanoukville is most attractive at night. At that time, the beach is filled with colored lights by dozens of restaurants and bars closed together. The night space becomes more marvelous with magical candles on hundreds of dining tables nearby the beach along with big mattress on rattan chairs. Eating is also quite cheap, only 3.5 -5 USD for a plate of fresh seafood and a glass of cool Angkor beer.

More one special plus point for Sihanoukville’s night is fireworks. There are some various types: handheld tree-fireworks as in Vietnam in the 90s, howl fireworks or big fireworks. Children in locals sell fireworks along the beach to visitors. And after visitors are full with seafood, Sihanoukville also willing to please tourists who love bustling by many noisy bars on the sea till dawn.
