Heightened security measures have been implemented at Phnom Penh International Airport (PNH) and in Phnom Penh ahead of Independence Day on Saturday, November 9, and the water festival, scheduled from Sunday, November 10, through Tuesday, November 12.
Independence Day celebrations are expected to bring 100,000 people to Phnom Penh for festivities throughout the city. The main celebration is scheduled to take place at Wat Phnom.
Large crowds are likely, along with an increased risk of petty crime during both events. Transportation disruptions and a heightened security presence are also to be expected in the vicinity of the events.
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.
