In Brief: Festival float fleet expanded

Twenty-one illuminated processional floats, or pratips, were featured in this year's Water Festival compared with eight last year, as organisers looked to enliven the spectacle that has millions of rural Cambodians converge on the capital. The loudly decorated floats represent the Royal Palace and various government organisations. "We have more this year in order to pay tribute to the 55th anniversary of Independence Day as well as Cambodia's current economic growth," said Chea Kean, deputy director of the National and International Festival Committee.
