I would say that would be the easiest place to hold this event, Kep being possible the cleanest place in Cambodia. Anyone know of any cleaner place in this country?

Last year it was in Sihanoukville. I think they alternate between cleanest and dirtiest. ;)

Kep is gearing up for the Sea Festival at the end of the year. Kep is ahead on cleaness and greeness, BUT they have a very limited supply of accommodation for the amount of visitors that they want attract to the festival.

By organizing the festival, the minister wants to push Kep to be a model province to prepare the city for its beauty and beauty. Greenery in accordance with ASEAN standards to contribute to attracting tourist in the region as well as tourists around the world.

[BUT...]
According to Ken Suy, governor of Kep province, this year's Sea Festival is expected to be attended by many people. However, there is no capacity to supply hotels and homes for the expected demand, so they will be dependent on the neighboring provinces.
"Kep does not have the full capacity to welcome the Sea Festival with 200 to 300,000 people," he said. The current accommodation is just over 1,000.

Also both are not only "Clean" but both designated as "Most Beautiful Bay" status not accounting for the direct drainage of raw sewage and effluent into that bay. Enjoy the crab and go for a swim at Sea Festival 2017.

Too many people + loud noise = danger, am I right?

I hope Water Festival is still safe.

Not if there's a fire, not even if you hear the sound of a thud from my home and one week later there's a smell coming from there that can only be a decaying human body and you have to hold a hanky to your face because the stench is so thick that you think you're going to faint.

Even then, don't come knocking...Not for ANY reason.
