Situated on a low hill off Santepheap Street, Sihanoukville, Wat Krom is another fine example of Cambodian culture and religion. There are many old tombs around, as well as statues, especially many-headed serpents. There is the procession of monks, the 'gold' reclining Buddha, but the best of all is 'gold' statue of Buddha in the main temple! Do go in and have a look... take pictures, but be respectful... remove your shoes before entering, and leave a donation for the monks before leaving! Definitely worth seeing if you are in Sihanoukville. just ask a tuk-tuk driver to take you to "Wat Krom", and ask him to wait for the return trip! Also ask the driver "how much?" before going, and agree on a price.
