Looking back at Khmer New Year.

by Dominic Stafford

Been thinking about the two new years coming up – Chinese and Khmer, and reminiscing my trip to Pailin, in the west, for Khmer New Year 2011. Apparently Phnom Penh gets awfully quiet, and I know that Siem Reap does. However in Pailin water fights were breaking out all over the place. You weren’t able to drive down the road without getting soaked and slapped in the face with powder! What a relief it was from the afternoon heat though. Here’s a couple of shots from back then.
