Sihanoukville, also known as 'Kampong Som', is a coastal city in Cambodia and capital city of Sihanoukville Province, situated at the tip of elevated peninsula at the Gulf of Thailand in country's south-west. The town is flanked by an uninterrupted string of beaches along the entire coastline and coastal marshlands that border Ream National Park in the East. In city's proximity are a number of thinly inhabited isles, under Sihanoukville's administration, where moderate development in recent years helped to attract a portion of Asia's individual vacationers, back-packers and young students.
The city, named in honour of the former king Norodom Sihanouk, has a population of around 89,800 and approximately 66,700 in the urban center (2008). Sihanoukville's total area is 80 km2 (30 ml2). Sihanoukville city takes the greater part of 4 of the 5 communes (Sangkats) of Mittakpheap District. Relatively young, the city has evolved parallel to the construction of Sihanoukville Autonomous Port, that commenced in June 1955, as country's gateway to unrestricted international sea trade. Cambodia's only deep water port includes a transport logistics facility and a mineral oil terminal. As a consequence, Sihanoukville became a leading national center of commerce, transport, trade and process manufacturing.
The many beaches and nearby islands make Sihanoukville's Cambodia's prime seaside resort with rising numbers of tourists since late 20th century. As a result of the economic diversity, region's natural beauty and recreational potential, an increasing number of foreign residents make it one of the most culturally varied population centers in Cambodia.
