Special Seating Arrangement for Foreigners during Water Festival

The Royal Government of Cambodia will provide a special seating arrangement and services free of charge for foreigners during the Water Festival celebration in Phnom Penh on Nov. 26-28.

The notification was circulated yesterday by the Ministry of Tourism, adding that the National Committee for Organising National and International Festivals will arrange preferential seating on the river bank close to the honorary stages in front of the Royal Palace.

Along with the convenient seats, participating foreigners will be provided free refreshment and headsets for translation of the event announcement and narration into English, French, and Chinese.

The notification informed tour agencies and other private operators relevant to spread the information and include it in their tour packages to promote the participation of foreign visitors.

Annually, Cambodia organises the Water Festival, one of the country’s biggest celebrations, to mark the end of monsoon season, convey appreciation to nature, especially water, for the productive harvests, and commemorate the country’s rich culture and long history.
