Impressive Bon Om Touk ~ Cambodian Water Festival 2018

Yeah‌ SiennyLovesDrawingÂ đŸ‘©đŸ»Â is gonna sharing đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’»đŸ“ here about her impressive đŸ€© & unforgettable experience gained from the annual Cambodian 🇰🇭 Water 💩💧 Festival 🎉🎊, Phnom Penh, Cambodia 🇰🇭

So, it was all started with a short queue to get her đŸ‘©đŸ» cheap âŹ‡ïž flight ticket ✈ during the AirAsia BIG Xchange & BIG Fest event ❀ in Sept (as shown in the short clip đŸ“čđŸŽ„below). It was with only a limited choice of destinations📍📍available

She đŸ‘©đŸ» has chosen ✅ for Phnom Penh 🇰🇭 under Lane B with a very 1ïžâƒŁst intention to meet & visit 1ïžâƒŁ of her girlfriend đŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™€ïž who is working there as an expatriate currently. However, sadly 😟 that her friend đŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™€ïž wasn’t around ❌ Phnom Penh 🇰🇭 during her travel dates 🗓 Sigh…From a friend visit👭, then she had it as 1ïžâƒŁ of her annual solo travelsss đŸŽ’đŸ§ąđŸ•¶đŸ‘Ÿ

💗 ~ Everything Happens For A Reason ~ 💗

Also initially she đŸ‘©đŸ» did plan to let go this solo trip because of a clash to a tourism event ~ MITA Sarawak, Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ that she đŸ‘©đŸ» has always supporting đŸ’ȘđŸ»âœŒđŸ»the tourism authority 😊 in Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿïž

Guess what❓⁉

Her trip is gonna be during the annual Cambodian 🇰🇭 Water 💩💧 Festival 🎉🎊 named Bon Om Touk in local Khmer language 🇰🇭 from 21 Nov to 23 Nov 2018 😃😁 It also known as The Pirogue đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïž Racing Festival 🎉🎊 or Water 💩💧 & Moon 🌑 Festival 🎉🎊 & Boat Racing đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïž

http://cambodia-tourism.org/plan-your-trip/events/cambodian-water-festival/

It was really a coincident‌ Once she đŸ‘©đŸ»Â has decided ✅ to stay with this solo travel đŸŽ’đŸ•¶đŸ§ąđŸ‘Ÿ due to the complicated & difficult flight change đŸ˜ŸâœˆïžÂ Also this gonna be her 1ïžâƒŁst visit to Phnom Penh, Cambodia 🇰🇭

This biggest celebration marks a 12th century naval victory with boat đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïž racing along the Sisowath Quay 💩💧 with the boat đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïž racing on the Tonle Sap River, in particular the area stretching from street 104 to street 178 of Phnom Penh city centre 🇰🇭

Many hostels 🏡🏘, hotels 🏱, restaurants đŸœđŸŽ & bars đŸ„‚đŸ»đŸžaround this area ~ Very convenience for all visitors đŸ‘«đŸ‘­đŸ‘Ź

In the morning 🔅🔆 & before the race đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïž starts during this 3ïžâƒŁ-day festival 🎉🎀, the riverside & streets were much more peaceful 😌

Once the race starts around 🔟am, the huge crowd đŸ‘­đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘« at the riverside will be observed đŸ˜ƒđŸ‘đŸ»đŸ™ŒđŸ»

However, in 2015 this celebration 🎉🎊 was cancelled ❌ due to the low âŹ‡ïž water level 💩💧

Hurray‌ She đŸ‘©đŸ» always wanna appreciating & experiencing a country’s tradition culture during her travels âœˆïžđŸŽ’đŸ•¶đŸ§ąđŸ‘ŸÂ This is just so a lovely 💓 coincidence 😉

So, what’s this water 💩💧 festival 🎊🎉 all about❓⁉

It’s a 3ïžâƒŁ days non-religious celebration 🎉🎊 & symbolised as an ancient appreciation đŸ™đŸ» for centuries to the river 💩💧for providing a source of livelihood to the farmers đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸŒŸđŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸŒŸ & fishermen 🐟🎣

Hmm…It’s a kind of local Khmers đŸ‡°đŸ‡­đŸ‘«đŸ‘­đŸ‘Ź thanksgiving 🙏 celebration 🎉🎊

The Cambodian boat crews đŸ‡°đŸ‡­đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïž were face forward. Many of the boat crews đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïž were complemented with a colorfully-costumed lady đŸ’đŸ»â€â™€ïžat the prow dancing to the beat of the drums đŸ„đŸ„

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

For the 1ïžâƒŁst 2ïžâƒŁ days, races đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïž are run with 2ïžâƒŁ boats đŸ›¶đŸ›¶ each, with the big race đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïž happening on the last day, when all the boats đŸ›¶đŸ›¶ take to the river 💩💧 to compete 😃

There were carnival, rides, traditional music đŸŽŒđŸŽ¶đŸŽ” performances, dances đŸ’ƒđŸ»đŸ•șđŸŒđŸ‘Żâ€â™€ïžđŸ‘Żâ€â™‚ïžđŸ•ŽđŸ»etc. in the evening 🏙🌃🌌

There were many stall vendors, definitely food 🍛đŸČđŸ„˜đŸœđŸŽ& drink đŸ„€đŸ»đŸ·đŸ„‚đŸžđŸčoverflow on the streets, Khmer pop bands đŸŽŒđŸŽčđŸŽ§đŸŽ¶đŸŽ”entertaining the crowds đŸ‘­đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘« etc.

Personally, she đŸ‘©đŸ» was impressed how the local vendors actually earn their living 💰by selling drinks đŸ„€& snacks đŸ„ĄđŸ°đŸ„§đŸ„Ș to the huge crowds đŸ‘­đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘« at the riverside during the boat racing đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïž

There were approximately 300 boats đŸ›¶đŸ›¶ with 19k pax of boat rowers đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïž Wow!!

Hmm…đŸ€” How about the huge crowd đŸ‘­đŸ‘«đŸ‘Źattended for this 3ïžâƒŁ-day festival celebration 🎉🎊 in Phnom Penh❓⁉

IMG_4571.JPG

It was about 4.5million people đŸ‘­đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘« 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 🇰🇭 has handbuilt the world 🌍đŸ—ș ‘s longest rowing boat đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïž at 87.3m long & 1.99m wide with cost of $60k. It was completed successfully đŸ‘đŸ»đŸ‘đŸ»đŸ™ŒđŸ» in Sept by more than 14k local Khmers đŸ‡°đŸ‡­đŸ‘­đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘« in 192 days đŸ˜Č😃

Guess what❓⁉

Another Guinness World 🌍đŸ—ș Record 🏆 won (It’s the 5ïžâƒŁth one) by Cambodia 🇰🇭 as this long dragon boat đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïž is capable of carrying 179 boat rowers đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïž on it‌ Wow‌đŸ˜Č This great đŸ‘đŸ» news was anounced on 12 Nov at Prey Veng province of Phnom Penh 🇰🇭

From her own experience, a few points 📌📌 to note if you’re interested to be at Phnom Penh or Siem Reap for this great đŸ‘đŸ» annual celebration 🎊🎉

Ohh ya…A pair of comfy shoes 👟 is essentials ✅ because it was vehicles free 🆓 i.e. No public transport ❌🚌🚕🚗 🚐 being available to the festival 🎉🎊 ground📍, 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 👣

Yeah‌ SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ» got her sun â˜€ïžđŸŒž protection from the 🆕Petal Velvet Sunaway SPF50 ordered & purchased đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’»đŸ›’ from Althea KoreaÂ đŸ‡°đŸ‡· 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 🌂☂ (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 👚 to enjoy the boat đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïž race cheerings with the local Khmers đŸ‡°đŸ‡­đŸ‘­đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘« at the riverside under the hot sunny đŸ˜Žâ˜€ïž day

Ohh ya…Do remember your refillable water 💩💧 bottle to avoid dehydration ya 😌

She đŸ‘©đŸ» was with the local Khmers đŸ‡°đŸ‡­đŸ‘«đŸ‘­đŸ‘Ź on her 1ïžâƒŁst visit & then 2ïžâƒŁnd visit the next day at the designated area by Tourism Cambodia 🇰🇭 for the foreign tourists đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘«đŸ‘­Â (Served with free 🆓 flow of drinksđŸ„€đŸ„€available)

The riversides 💩💧 were extremely packed & crowded đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘«đŸ‘­ with both the local Khmers đŸ‡°đŸ‡­đŸ‘«đŸ‘­đŸ‘Ź & foreign tourists to cheering for their favorite ❀ boatsđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïž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 đŸ‘­đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘«

Why❓⁉

Hmm…You never know whether you will be being targetted by any pick-pockets/ bag-snatchers 😈👿 whom may just roaming around the crowded festival 🎉🎊 riversides 💩💧& streets. So, even though this festival 🎉🎊 is a free 🆓 celebration 🎉🎊 , however it can get really expensive if you make a mistake by carrying valuables into the crowds đŸ‘­đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘«

Always better be safe then sorry ya â˜șïžđŸ˜‰

There were several types of rowing đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïž styles observed from her visits, i.e. sitting down & manual rowing, standing up & manual rowing, standing up & auto rowing etc. She đŸ‘©đŸ» is curious đŸ€” how the marks will be allocate within each different styles as well as the determining factors of winning 🏆🎖 too❓⁉

Perhaps logically the shortest time 🕛 of completion from the start till end time of each boat at the finishing line (The 2ïžâƒŁ red ❀ boats đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïž as captured in the photo 📾 & vBlog đŸ“čđŸŽ„below)

There were live announcement during the boat racing đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïž, however in local Khmer 🇰🇭 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 đŸ€ŽđŸ», Prime Minister Hun Sen đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œ& some senior officials đŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™‚ïžđŸ’đŸ»â€â™‚ïž have all attended the closing ceremony on the last day of this festival 🎉🎊 She đŸ‘©đŸ» has observed from the TV screen đŸ“ș at the foreign visitors designated booth

Ohh ya…She đŸ‘©đŸ» has enjoyed the longest & the pretty đŸ˜đŸ€© fireworks 🎆🎇 so far from the closing ceremony of this water festival 🎉🎊

Really amazing beautiful đŸ˜đŸ€© & with the boats đŸ›¶đŸ›¶ decorated with LED lighting💡💡screens represented by each relevant authorities of organising & managing this water 💩💧 festival 🎊🎉 e.g. Tourism, Justice, Ministry of Art & Handicrafts etc. to name a few noted 😉

Ohh ya…Some of the eateries đŸœđŸŽ & shops 🛒🛍may close ⛔ during this water 💩💧 festival 🎉🎊 (All 3ïžâƒŁ days) & resume their operation then đŸ€—
