Water Festival Ceremony

Water Festival Ceremony
11.14.2016

In the end of this rainy season, All Dreams Cambodia wishes you a festive 3-day Water Festival Ceremony.

 

The festival marks the reversal of the flow between the Mekong and Tonle Sap rivers. Due to the amount of water deposited during the rainy season, the Tonle Sap river becomes so swollen with water that it reverses the direction of its flow and flows upstream to Tonle Sap lake. The switching of the flow back to its normal direction, signifying the end of the rainy season. Essentially, the festival is a time to give thanks to the rivers as they provide the region with fertile farming land and plenty of fish.
