Khmer New Year

The Khmer New Year – Chol Chnam Thmey in Khmer – is one of Cambodia’s major holidays. Most businesses stop work for three whole days so that their staff can return to hometown and celebrate. Kids City however is open 365 days per year.

The Khmer New Year marks the end of the traditional harvest season, a time of leisure for farmers who have toiled all year to plant and harvest rice. April represents a rare break from the hard work: the summer season reaches its peak in this month, making it all but impossible to work for long in the fields.

Where to Celebrate Khmer New Year?
