Don't understand what about this sculpture is so interesting... Poorly made, low artistic value, the only thing is that lions ar situated in city center...

I mean. It's a nice decorative roundabout but at the end of the day, it's still just a fairly large and busy roundabout. If you're visiting Sihanoukville, you probably can't miss it (as you have to pass it to go to Serendipity beach etc) but I wouldn't get too worked up about detouring for this 'attraction'.

This gigantic statue of a lion and a lioness all covered in gold paint is located on a central round about. It is a tourist attraction as it is well presented with some cambodian architectural ornate pillars sourrounding it. It is something to admire.

All this is is a statue in the roundabout, but watch out because the police were here all 3 days I went past trying to drag people into the side to most probably make a quick dollar! Wear helmet, have light off and when they try pull you over just keep driving. They won't bother chasing you

Nice sculptures but they are on a busy main road and just a round about really - do not plan a trip to see them!
