Water Festival 2018

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.

They try to see how many Khmers can crowd the waterfront and get their pockets picked.

Yes the lunar cycle, 23rd November is a full moon. It coincides with a Buddhist day but I forget the name. If I’m not mistaken it marks the end of the wet season.

22nd is an ordinary Buddha day.
End of wet = Pchum Ben, 8,9,10 October.
