FÊTE DES EAUX
Petit Futé's opinion on FÊTE DES EAUX
The festival of the withdrawal of the waters is the biggest traditional festival of Cambodia. Usually set on the full moon of Kattik, it marks the end of the annual flood, the reversal of the Tonle Sap's current and the ripening of the crops. The king moves to his floating house in front of the royal palace and must remain there for three days. The races of decorated dugout canoes constitute a spectacle extremely appreciated by the population of the capital. The last day of the ceremony is marked by the severing of the leather strap that bars the river.
