The Angkor Sangkran celebration will again be a feature of Khmer New Year’s observances in Siem Reap. This is the third year the Sangkran will be held, but this year it will be bigger, more exciting and more interesting than last year, according to Union of Youth Federations of Cambodia. Angkor Sangkran will be celebrated in front of Angkor Wat temple, Bayon Temple, and Elephant Terrace, along the Siem Reap River, in the Angkor Gyeongju area and in Pub Street.
Visitors will be able to participate in traditional Khmer games, such as the Bas Angkunh or seed throwing, Haol Chhoung or twisted-scarf throwing, and Leak Kanséng or twisted-scarf hiding. Participants will also be able to dance together to traditional Khmer songs.
