Impressive Bon Om Touk ~ Cambodian Water Festival 2018

Yeah‼️ SiennyLovesDrawingΒ πŸ‘©πŸ»Β is gonna sharing πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’»πŸ“ here about her impressive 🀩 & unforgettable experience gained from the annualΒ CambodianΒ πŸ‡°πŸ‡­ Water πŸ’¦πŸ’§ Festival πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ, Phnom Penh, Cambodia πŸ‡°πŸ‡­

So, it was all started withΒ a short queue to get her πŸ‘©πŸ» cheap ⬇️ flight ticket ✈️ during the AirAsia BIG Xchange & BIG Fest event ❀️ in Sept (as shown in the short clip πŸ“ΉπŸŽ₯below). It was with only a limited choice of destinationsπŸ“πŸ“available

She πŸ‘©πŸ» has chosen βœ… for Phnom PenhΒ πŸ‡°πŸ‡­ under Lane B with a very 1️⃣st intention to meet & visit 1️⃣ of her girlfriend πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ who is working there as an expatriate currently. However, sadly 😟 that her friend πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ wasn’t around ❌ Phnom Penh πŸ‡°πŸ‡­ during her travel dates πŸ—“ Sigh…From a friend visitπŸ‘­, then she had it as 1️⃣ of her annual solo travelsss πŸŽ’πŸ§’πŸ•ΆπŸ‘Ÿ

πŸ’— ~ Everything Happens For A Reason ~ πŸ’—

Also initially she πŸ‘©πŸ» did plan to let go this solo trip because of a clash to a tourism event ~ MITA Sarawak, Malaysia πŸ‡²πŸ‡Ύ that she πŸ‘©πŸ» has always supporting πŸ’ͺ🏻✌🏻the tourism authority 😊 in Malaysia πŸ‡²πŸ‡ΎοΈ

Guess what❓⁉️

Her trip is gonna be during the annualΒ Cambodian πŸ‡°πŸ‡­ Water πŸ’¦πŸ’§ Festival πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠΒ named Bon Om ToukΒ in local Khmer language πŸ‡°πŸ‡­ from 21 Nov to 23 Nov 2018 πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ It also known as The Pirogue πŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈ Racing Festival πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠΒ or Water πŸ’¦πŸ’§ & Moon πŸŒ‘ Festival πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ & Boat Racing πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

It was really a coincident‼️ Once she πŸ‘©πŸ»Β has decided βœ… to stay with this solo travel πŸŽ’πŸ•ΆπŸ§’πŸ‘Ÿ due to the complicated & difficult flight change 😟✈️ Also this gonna be her 1️⃣st visit to Phnom Penh, CambodiaΒ πŸ‡°πŸ‡­

This biggest celebrationΒ marks a 12th century naval victory with boat πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ racing along the Sisowath Quay πŸ’¦πŸ’§ with the boat πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ racing on the Tonle Sap River, in particular the area stretching from street 104 to street 178 of Phnom Penh city centre πŸ‡°πŸ‡­

Many hostels 🏑🏘, hotels 🏒, restaurants 🍽🍴 & bars πŸ₯‚πŸ»πŸΈaround this area ~ Very convenience for all visitors πŸ‘«πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬

In the morning πŸ”…πŸ”† & before the race πŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈ starts during this 3️⃣-day festival πŸŽ‰πŸŽ€, the riverside & streets were much more peaceful 😌

Once the race starts around πŸ”Ÿam, the huge crowd πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬πŸ‘« at the riverside will be observed πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘πŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ»

However, in 2015 this celebration πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ was cancelled ❌ due to the low ⬇️ water level πŸ’¦πŸ’§

Hurray‼️ She πŸ‘©πŸ» always wanna appreciating & experiencing a country’s tradition culture during her travels βœˆοΈπŸŽ’πŸ•ΆπŸ§’πŸ‘ŸΒ This is just so a lovely πŸ’“ coincidenceΒ πŸ˜‰

So, what’s this water πŸ’¦πŸ’§ festival πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰ all about❓⁉️

It’s a 3️⃣ days non-religious celebration πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ & symbolised as an ancient appreciation πŸ™πŸ» for centuries to the river πŸ’¦πŸ’§for providing a source of livelihood to the farmers πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸŒΎπŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸŒΎ & fishermen 🐟🎣

Hmm…It’s a kind of local Khmers πŸ‡°πŸ‡­πŸ‘«πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬ thanksgiving πŸ™ celebration πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ

The Cambodian boat crews πŸ‡°πŸ‡­πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ were face forward. Many of the boat crews πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ were complemented with a colorfully-costumed lady πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈat the prow dancing to the beat of the drums πŸ₯πŸ₯

However, from her observation, majority of the boats now don’t really practising this tradition though. Hmm…From her 2️⃣ days visits to the festival, she only noticed for 2️⃣ boats with a colorfully-costumed lady πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈ at the front of the boat πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

For the 1️⃣st 2️⃣ days, races πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ are run with 2️⃣ boats πŸ›ΆπŸ›Ά each, with the big race πŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ happening on the last day, when all the boats πŸ›ΆπŸ›Ά take to the river πŸ’¦πŸ’§ to compete πŸ˜ƒ

There were carnival, rides, traditional music 🎼🎢🎡 performances, dances πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ•ΊπŸΌπŸ‘―β€β™€οΈπŸ‘―β€β™‚οΈπŸ•΄πŸ»etc. in the evening πŸ™πŸŒƒπŸŒŒ

There were many stall vendors, definitely food πŸ›πŸ²πŸ₯˜πŸ½πŸ΄& drink πŸ₯€πŸ»πŸ·πŸ₯‚πŸΈπŸΉoverflow on the streets, Khmer pop bands 🎼🎹🎧🎢🎡entertaining the crowds πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬πŸ‘« etc.

Personally, she πŸ‘©πŸ» was impressed how the local vendors actually earn their living πŸ’°by selling drinks πŸ₯€& snacks πŸ₯‘🍰πŸ₯§πŸ₯ͺ to the huge crowds πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬πŸ‘« at the riverside during the boat racing πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

There were approximately 300 boats πŸ›ΆπŸ›Ά with 19k pax of boat rowers πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ Wow!!

Hmm…πŸ€” How about the huge crowd πŸ‘­πŸ‘«πŸ‘¬attended for this 3️⃣-day festival celebration πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ in Phnom Penh❓⁉️

IMG_4571.JPG

It was about 4.5million people πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬πŸ‘« including expatriates, foreign visitors, local Khmers from all provinces etc. as shared at the closing ceremony 😁

Ohh yeah‼️ This year, 2018 i.e. The 3rd great successfull year with Cambodia πŸ‡°πŸ‡­ has handbuilt the world πŸŒπŸ—Ί ‘s longest rowing boat πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈ at 87.3m long & 1.99m wide with cost of $60k. It was completed successfully πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ» in Sept by more than 14k local Khmers πŸ‡°πŸ‡­πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬πŸ‘« in 192 days πŸ˜²πŸ˜ƒ

Guess what❓⁉️

Another Guinness World πŸŒπŸ—Ί Record πŸ† won (It’s the 5️⃣th one) by Cambodia πŸ‡°πŸ‡­ as this long dragon boat πŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ is capable of carrying 179 boat rowers πŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈ on it‼️ Wowβ€ΌοΈπŸ˜² This great πŸ‘πŸ» news was anounced on 12 Nov at Prey Veng province of Phnom Penh πŸ‡°πŸ‡­

From her own experience, a few points πŸ“ŒπŸ“Œ to note if you’re interested to be at Phnom Penh or Siem Reap for this great πŸ‘πŸ» annual celebration πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰

Ohh ya…A pair of comfy shoes πŸ‘Ÿ is essentials βœ…Β because itΒ was vehicles free πŸ†“Β i.e. No public transport βŒπŸšŒπŸš•πŸš— 🚐 being available to theΒ festival πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ groundπŸ“, more details via 🌐 https://www.khmertimeskh.com/50551697/city-hall-issues-vehicle-ban-for-water-festival/

In this connection, the only option would be just getting around by your own foot πŸ‘£

Yeah‼️ SiennyLovesDrawing πŸ‘©πŸ» got her sun β˜€οΈπŸŒž protection from theΒ πŸ†•Petal Velvet SunawayΒ SPF50 ordered & purchased πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’»πŸ›’ fromΒ Althea KoreaΒ πŸ‡°πŸ‡· You must remember to put up your sunscreen to avoid sunburn

Photo 27-11-2018, 12 35 31 PM.jpg

Next, do bring an umbrella πŸŒ‚β˜‚ (You may loan it from your hotel, it can be a weapon if needed)/ wear a cap 🧒

Do dress up in a light modest clothing πŸ‘š to enjoy the boat πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ race cheerings with the local Khmers πŸ‡°πŸ‡­πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬πŸ‘« at the riverside under the hot sunny πŸ˜Žβ˜€οΈ day

Ohh ya…Do remember your refillable water πŸ’¦πŸ’§ bottle to avoid dehydration ya 😌

She πŸ‘©πŸ» was with the local Khmers πŸ‡°πŸ‡­πŸ‘«πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬ on her 1️⃣st visit & then 2️⃣nd visit the next day at the designated area by Tourism Cambodia πŸ‡°πŸ‡­ for the foreign tourists πŸ‘¬πŸ‘«πŸ‘­Β (Served with free πŸ†“ flow of drinksπŸ₯€πŸ₯€available)

The riversides πŸ’¦πŸ’§ were extremely packed & crowded πŸ‘¬πŸ‘«πŸ‘­ with both the local Khmers πŸ‡°πŸ‡­πŸ‘«πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬ & foreign tourists to cheering for their favorite ❀️ boatsπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈduring the races, so suggest you to bring only the bare necessities & hold on tight to what you have. Also being alert with your surroundings too while in the huge crowd πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬πŸ‘«

Why❓⁉️

Hmm…You never know whether you will be being targetted by any pick-pockets/ bag-snatchers πŸ˜ˆπŸ‘Ώ whom may just roaming around the crowded festival πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ riversides πŸ’¦πŸ’§& streets. So, even thoughΒ this festival πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ is a free πŸ†“ celebration πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ , however it can get really expensive if you make a mistake by carrying valuables into the crowds πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬πŸ‘«

Always better be safe then sorry ya β˜ΊοΈπŸ˜‰

There were several types of rowing πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ styles observed from her visits, i.e. sitting down & manual rowing, standing up & manual rowing, standing up & auto rowing etc. She πŸ‘©πŸ» is curious πŸ€” how the marks will be allocate within each different styles as well as the determining factors of winning πŸ†πŸŽ– too❓⁉️

Perhaps logically the shortest time πŸ•› of completion from the start till end time of each boat at the finishing line (The 2️⃣ red ❀️ boats πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ as captured in the photo πŸ“Έ & vBlog πŸ“ΉπŸŽ₯below)

There were live announcement during the boat racing πŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈ, however in local Khmer πŸ‡°πŸ‡­ language & ❌ no English translation. It would be good to have a live English announcement in the next year festival onwards ya 😊

The King Norodom Sihamoni 🀴🏻, Prime Minister Hun Sen πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸ’Ό& some senior officials πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸ’πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ have all attended the closing ceremony on the last day of this festival πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ She πŸ‘©πŸ» has observed from the TV screen πŸ“Ί at the foreign visitors designated booth

Ohh ya…She πŸ‘©πŸ» has enjoyed the longest & the pretty 😍🀩 fireworks πŸŽ†πŸŽ‡ so far from the closing ceremony of this water festival πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ

Really amazing beautiful 😍🀩 & with the boats πŸ›ΆπŸ›Ά decorated with LED lightingπŸ’‘πŸ’‘screens represented by each relevant authorities of organising & managing this water πŸ’¦πŸ’§ festival πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰ e.g. Tourism, Justice, Ministry of Art & Handicrafts etc. to name a few noted πŸ˜‰

Ohh ya…Some of the eateries 🍽🍴 & shops πŸ›’πŸ›may close ⛔️ during this water πŸ’¦πŸ’§ festival πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ (All 3️⃣ days) & resume their operation then πŸ€—

This festival πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰ also ended with lots of clean up & tidy up at the riverside by the local Khmers πŸ‡°πŸ‡­πŸ‘¬πŸ‘¬πŸ‘¬
