This is more of a local hangout than a tourist trap, with dozens of Cambodians a day going up there to eat and spend time with there family. There are two waterfalls, a main one that is extremely impressive and powerful, and a smaller one to the side that can be swam in. During the dry season there it is... More

Bit of a long journey from Serendipity beach but fun in a local tuktuk. Stunning scenery and fun to go in and feel the force of the waterfall.

The waterfall is interesting from a geomorphological aspect. It's also interestingly very much a locals spot - a haven for weekend families who stand en masse under the torrents. The whole feel of the place is relaxed, there are food stalls and so on. But the litter.... oh my God... the litter is appalling. It covers everything including every area... More

When we got on the bus, one of guest who was seatting beside me. He had talked about the kbal chhay. He said that kbal chhay was amazing and beautiful.... More

Only .50 for admission and scooter parking. Yes, there was trash but no worse than any other place in Cambodia. Great place to get wet or just listen and watch the waterfalls.

It was a far way out and road was not good but it was worth seeing as not much else here to do during the day. I thought it would of been higher but anyway killed 3 hours of my time. It was also a good place to chill for a while away from the town life.

On recommendation from our tour quide we visited the waterfalls and were both a little disappointed. As normal you are greeted by women and children trying to sell stuff. Annoying but becoming very normal. We traveled thru approx 100 wooden huts some used as restaurants and others selling drinks and food while others just people laying around. While the waterfall...

This could really be a great natural attraction near Sihanoukville, but it's spoiled by rubbish strewn everywhere. Very disappointing & unfortunately I'd recommend giving it a big miss.

The actual falls are nice, but the filth you have to walk through makes this an overall unpleasant and disappointing experience. Rubbish is strewn all over the place and locals seemingly sit amongst plastic wrappings, bottles and other man made waste without any concern for how this disrespects the natural beauty of the area. We went after a lot of... More

At one time it was beautiful water fall, however the khmers find it necessary to throw their trash everywhere with total disregard to decency. Careful due to broken bottles in the water, its best to avoid this place until it is cleaned up.
