Pretty landmark

A majestic looking landmark - good for directions and is in the middle of a busy intersection.Stopping to take pictures isn't recommended as this might lead to traffic congestion.

Just because they put some statues in the middle doesn't make it an attraction. If you go anywhere in Sihanoukville you'll probably pass through it.

Merely a landmark for directions - it's a busy roundabout - some good food nearby - take a picture if you want but plenty more to see here

What can better characterise this seaside port city than two Golden lions about to mate? At night there are transvestites here and by day corrupt police bilking foreigners out of their cash with trumped up charges from anything like running a red-light that doesn't exist to wearing white socks. This is a hub where people can meet. That's it main... More

Understood the significance of the lions, although they seem about to mate. That coupled with their odd proportions, make them a little surreal. I have lived in SEA for quite a while...things like this are all part of the charm

The Golden Lion traffic circle is by far the nicest monuments in Sihanoukville, Cambodia. At night time it is lit up and is beautiful. Especially around Christmas time, it had necklaces drapped over the Lions..... Very, very cool.

This is just a roundabout with some funny looking lions on it. You do not need to make an effort to go see it!

The Lions are impressive but beware the police are pretty heavy around this intersection and we got pulled over on our bikes. They tried to bully us but we had been warned so knew how to respond. Still paid a fine for nothing but only a few aussie dollars. Make a point of getting the right info if on bikes.... More

In the middle of a busy intersection, not much to see. You don't need to make a detour to see it, most likely you'll hit it on the way to somewhere in that area
