We went to the Wat Krom Temple as part of an excursion from Viking cruise. We were treated to a performance of traditional dance with explanation about the hand movements. It was very interesting and they got the group involved in the dancing as well. Outside are many statues of Buddha and our guide explained the different aspects of Buddha’s life. We did not see any monks or monkeys. Our guide told us that people are still wary of the monks since they were involved with the Khmeer Rouge. Sihanoukville is very dilapidated and the people live in horrible conditions. We were very taken aback. Apparently these poor people are now being taken advantage of by the Chinese who are building sub-standard roads and buildings several of which have collapsed.

We stopped at the Wat Krom Temple and marveled at the beauty of the site. Initially you see isolated stupas (where the deceased are honored) and then you travel up the road to see other sites, including a great view of the city from above.

Sihanoukville is an amalgam of contrasts (from dusty city streets to the calm of different temples) - don't be put off by the city streets and all the dirt. This is a city in transition and it will be interesting to see it in 2 - 3 years. The people seem particularly industrious and energetic.

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.

With the dirt and devastation evident in this area Cambodia, it was great to get away and see this temple. We jumped on a tuk tuk to get here as it’s slightly out of the way but gives a good experience of a working temple. Entry is free and in return they just ask for respect when walking around.

We visited here as part of a cruise ship shore excursion, so consequently it was very crowded. This temple is really beautiful, and there is so much to take in, that it would be wonderful to be able to linger and relax here when there aren't those crowds present. It must surely be a truly serene place for Buddhist worship. The temple exterior has an awesome architectural style, matched by an equally stunning interior, and there are lots of golden statues in the courtyard - including a large reclining Buddha. As with any place of worship, dress and act respectfully, and be considerate if worship is in progress at the time of your visit.

This temple is very different from angkor wat, one of the most important temples in sihanoukvile, there is a lot of local people who visit this temple during the day.

Too many beggars and children pestering you to really appreciate the Temple itself. The whole area leaves a lot to be desired. All around there is so much rubbish and construction work.

We approached this temple on foot from the rear and saw the real Cambodia. We saw a school and monks, as well as a local business and squalor. The temple was fabulous, with its ornate golden buddhas (including a reclining buddha) as well as the ornate individual mausoleums erected in honor of family members.
