Khmer women with costume

Have questions or resources regarding Khmer Culture? This forum is all about the Kingdom of Cambodia's culture. Khmer language, Cambodian weddings, French influence, Cambodian architecture, Cambodian politics, Khmer customs, etc? This is the place. Living in Cambodia can cause you to experience a whole new level of culture shock, so feel free to talk about all things related to the Khmer people, and their traditions. And if you want something in Khmer script translated into English, you will probably find what you need.

Khmer women with costume

Post by prahkeitouj » Fri Apr 01, 2016 9:41 am

Khmer New Year is coming soon. Normally we go to pagodas with family before, during Khmer New year. I would like everyone post some nice costume of women.

by the way, can we have some photo of khmer woman in darker skin tone? this obsession with white skin is not healthy, it is brought on by idolising western culture, dark skin, tan skin are beautiful too. :D

Are you sure it didn't come from China or India?
