For four days starting November 20, hundreds of thousands of Cambodians are expected to descend upon the capital from their provincial hometowns to celebrate a phenomenon that is unique to the Kingdom: the reversal of the waters at the confluence of the Mekong, Bassac and Tonle Sap rivers. The Water Festival, as it is known, is marked by boat races, illuminated floats and fireworks. Teams of racers are already practicing for their chance to take top awards in what is one of Cambodia's biggest parties.
