Billy and Collette Lowery Visiting from Ireland
 

We've come to Cambodia three years in a row for the Water Festival. There's a great atmosphere. There are so many different nationalities and everyone is mixing happily together. You can always tell if people are not from Phnom Penh because they stare at you a lot and try to touch your arms. ... There are a lot of people looking at us here today

Visiting from Germany

I don’t really know what the Water Festival is about, although I suppose it must be linked to the turn of the Tonle Sap. It’s a loud and crowded time to be in Phnom Penh but I can’t complain, with the boats and the colours and all the activity its very beautiful. There are so many young people and children in Cambodia. They are everywhere.

Zac Canadian, teaching in PPenh

I think all the tips I've received about Water Festival have been to get out of the city as fast as you can, but it's not as crowded as I thought it would be and I've never seen it before so... I like the attitude of the people here, I even enjoy the corruption of the police. I guess it's just the fact that's if the complete opposite of a boring life in Canada. There's so much freedom here.
