Best time to go to Cambodia

Baok Chambab 2024

Ancient Khmer Cambodian martial art

Dates: November 9 | February 22 | April 13 | May 13–May 15 | May 21

Cambodian wrestling style has been practiced since the Angkor period. Wrestlers were not just men, but women as well, however, today it's more of a male-dominated sport. Baok Chambab matches are quite entertaining since dancing is as important as the wrestling. In the beginning of the match, restlers dance and move to the music. Matches consist​ of three rounds and are accompanied by drums beat. Matches are held at the Cambodian National Olympic Stadium during the Khmer New Year and other Cambodian holidays, as well as occasionally in the villages.
