Cambodia's Festivals
In Cambodia, holidays and festivals occur almost every month, making for plenty of reasons to celebrate. Here are two of the country’s most popular:

The Khmer New Year takes place for three days during mid-April, right after the harvest season and before the monsoons. Khmer New Year is one of the most joyful, jubilant times in the country, and local villages light up with festive celebrations. While all Khmers enjoy this holiday, this is a perfect time for farmers to take a break from their hard work in the fields. Many Cambodians gather at the Angkor Temples for the celebration, and it can be wild and lively. If you prefer a quiet, more peaceful Angkor experience, you may wish to avoid this peak time. If you’re happy to get caught up in the festive whirlwind, you’ll experience the colorful clothing, beautiful decorations, and lighthearted atmosphere. Please note that during this time, many shops and businesses close, and travel can be a bit more challenging. Please make sure to play your trip well in advance.

Pchum Ben (Ancestor’s Day) is Cambodia’s most important cultural and religious celebration. Each year, this festival occurs during the end of September and/or early October. During Pchum Ben, Cambodians believe that the spirits of their deceased loved ones return to earth, so they take this time to honor as many as seven previous generations. Locals typically visit temples to pray and present offerings to their ancestors, often in the form of small rice balls called bay ben, as well as paper money, and flowers that are offered through monks (as mediums).
