Being very family-orientated, Cambodians consider the whole country as a big family. On the New Year's Day everyone gets a piece of cake, if not from a family member then from a stranger on a street. Three days of nationwide celebrations include pouring coulored water and throwing flour at each other, crowds play games together and receive blessings from the monks. The best place to experience the Khmer New Year may be not the capital, but the countryside. This is where you can get a chance to take part in traditional dances and communal games. Do not be surprised if you’re invited to join in the celebrations, it could be lots of fun.
