Happy guests at Bastille Day on Koh Pich in 2015. Because last year’s 600 tickets were sold out in no time, the organizers doubled their efforts and planned twice as much for 2016. Catering for so many friends of French culture – and of course, cuisine – presented a mammoth task. Without further ado, the members of Goût de France (‘Good France’) in Cambodia joined forces to serve up dishes for 1200 guests. The amount of fine French delicacies were impressive.

Message from the Board of Directors of CCIFC

It is an honour for the French Cambodian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCIFC) to be engaged together with the Embassy of France in Cambodia, French associations and Bastille Day sponsors in order to organize the second edition of the Bastille Day event at Koh Pich. It is thanks to its ‘Good France’ committee, which is in charge of organizing festive events to promote the French Gastronomy and Art de Vivre, that CCIFC will be able to host this event this year. This committee is a perfect example of activities that illustrate the willingness and engagement of French entrepreneurs in Cambodia to organize an event for the benefit of the community.

After the successful public celebration of France’s National Day, which brought together around 600 French nationals and friends of France in Koh Pich last year, CCIFC is organizing again this year a friendly celebration of Bastille Day on 13 July 2016.

The event will again take place at Koh Pich (Diamond Island) in Phnom Penh, from 5pm to 12.30am, at Halls G, H and I and has been designed to attract up to 1200 people, an even larger participation than in 2015.

The event is opened to French nationals residing or traveling in Cambodia, but also to all those who want to taste a bit of France for an evening in a friendly atmosphere.

This event will start with an aperitif and a French traditional meal – one starter, one main course and one dessert – will then be served to each table. Live music, a dance ball, a lucky draw and a playing area for children will be provided during the evening.
