The Cambodian Water Festival will be held in Phnom Penh from Wednesday, November 21, through Saturday, November 24. The annual celebration attracts large crowds of Cambodians and tourists to the capital for music and art festivals and a naval procession. Large crowds are likely, along with an increased risk of petty crime. Transportation disruptions and a heightened security presence are also likely.
The Cambodian Water Festival is held in November to celebrate the rainy season and the reversal of the Tonle Sap River.
Individuals in Phnom Penh are advised to anticipate large crowds, a heightened security presence, and transportation disruptions, maintain vigilance for criminal and suspicious behavior, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
