    Water and Moon Festival and Boat Racing

    Wednesday, November 18, 2015

    Date: 24 November 2015

    For the people of Cambodia, the Water Festival and Bon Om Touk (The Pirogue Racing Festival) in Phnom Penh is the most magnificent traditional festival. For three days Phnom Penh citizens, foreign tourists and peasants from various provinces gather in the capital to celebrate festival night day.

    Water Festival in Phnom Penh, Cambodia

    The water festival had background for so long time. The water festival ceremony is the army training to do attest of the army for preparing to do a battle. In the history, Khmer King always does the battle with enemies by sailing. So he prepares this water festival ceremony every year to choose Champion of sailing battle, as in Bayon Temple, Batteay Chhmar in the Preah Bat Jayvarman VII. We had seen a lot of statues about sailing battle under leading of Jayvarman VII. The custom of this is to have from then up to the present.

    On the other hand the water is celebrated every years in November to honor the victory of Cambodian Naval forces in the reign of King JayvarmanVII, during Angkor period of the 12th century.

    And this ceremony is to history about military exercise of our navy force in the course of national defense and to express thanks to the 3 Buddhist symbols Gods and holy thing which helped us and agriculture field and serves as an opportunity to pray for our lord for the happiness and sufficient rain for rice cultivation.

    Besides the regatta, the water festival also includes three other ceremonies: Illuminated float (Loy Pratip), Moon salutation (Sampeas Preah Khe) and the eating of pestle new special rice with banana or coconut juice (Ork Ambok). The ceremony last three days to provide opportunity for people to by part in competition that there were to types of boats from near and far of provinces, taking part in the races, the pirogue and the rowing boat. Each boat was manned by about thirty to forty men or women. The boat with a man or a woman dancing softly and gracefully to the rhythm of the drums on the bow as an encouragement to the rowers moved swiftly through the water.

    There as the race winners will be rewarded a lot of good such as: drink, money, clothes, rice, cigarettes and the commission of the boat racing day must seek donations in order to provide this prize for participants.

    During the nighttime at about seven o'clock the river was lit by jazzy illuminated boats, which floated slowly, and smoothly on the water's surface. Each of them was equipped with thousands of flashy neon lights arranged in different colorful, fancy patterns representing state institutions, ministries and services.

    After a little time fireworks and multi color were lit to entertain people. Some of people made loud noises. They burst into different shapes and colors in the sky under the clapped and cheered with joy each time at the sight of the fireworks.

    Finally the water festival is the festivity for the Cambodian people who celebrated every years and going for a walk during the ceremony days really refreshed our mood. The lively festive atmosphere helped relive our tension and trouble.

    Tuesday, March 17, 2015

    Cambodia Celebrates First-Ever Mekong River Festival

    Cambodia kicked off the first- ever river festival in northeastern Kratie province on Saturday in a bid to promote eco-tourism along Mekong River.

    “Kratie province is well-known among tourists for critically endangered Irrawaddy dolphins,” Deputy Prime Minister and Cabinet Minister Sok An said at the opening ceremony, which was live broadcast on local Bayon TV channel.

    “Dolphins are the key source of incomes for residents in the province,” he said, adding that the province is also home to various groups of ethnic minorities.

    According to Sok An, the province attracted nearly 250,000 tourists last year, including 22,000 foreigners.

    There are currently over 100 dolphins living along the Mekong River in Kratie province.

    Tourism Minister Thong Khon said, “The first-ever festival is to promote tourism potential along the rivers and to encourage people to contribute to maintaining environment, sanitation, and natural resources.”

    He said the festival will be held every year in provinces along the rivers.
    The 3-day event started on Friday with the official opening ceremony being held on Saturday evening. The festival will showcase art performances, commercial exhibitions, and sport activities.

    Tourism is one of the four sectors supporting the economy. Last year, the Southeast Asian nation received 4.5 million international tourists, generating a total revenue of more than three billion U.S. dollars, according to the Ministry of Tourism.
