Koh kong to host kite festival

More than 120 kite enthusiasts will converge in Koh Kong province when Cambodia hosts an international kite festival January 6-7. Local kite flyers are expected to demonstrate use of the traditional kite, kleng ek. Sim Sarak, general director of administration and finance of Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts, said on Thursday: “People are proud of the kleng ek because no other country can produce beautiful kites better than Cambodian artists.” The event will cost organisers US$12,000, and participating countries include China, France, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, Sweden and Thailand.
