This is a very tricky and challenging game. It requires players to use both their intelligence and forward-thinking capacities. The game is extremely thrilling once you get the hang of it.

The game is popular among students in schools and universities as well as intellectuals and ordinary people. It helps people to develop insight. So … let’s play chess!


Volleyball
Pass the ball to me! Volleyball is one of the most popular sports in the world. There are two teams on each side of the middle net, and hands are the only means of touching the ball. Points are given when the ball lands on the court of the opposing side without being returned. Cambodian youth and adults, especially in the country, are fascinated by this sport and spend a lot of their spare time playing it. Volleyball helps make you healthy and fit.


Cambodia folk tales

The older Cambodian generation has left a legacy of many folk stories, which were once passed on only by word of mouth. Now they are gathered and put in books. Most stories illustrate the relationships between people and other living things such as animals and plants. And some delve into the supernatural and encompass proverbs. People of all ages can learn from these folk tales. Why not switch off the TV or the computer, open a book of folk tales and enter a whole new world?
