Today, I would like to show you guys about Khmer traditional festival called "'phchum ben "'

The word 'Phchum' means to gather or to meet together while 'Ben' in Khmer is to collect. During this festival, our local people always go to pagoda to "Ben Baht"'

Ben Baht' means to collect food to give to monks then dedicate to their ancestors. So, people try not to miss a visit to the pagoda. By doing this, Cambodians show respect for their ancestors.

Below is some activities during my visit at Pagoda

Noted : I went to different Pagoda in the same day, as you can see each pagoda has its own Style and decoration, but believe in the same faith.

Wat Kmouun Pagoda

Somdorng ondeth Pagoda


Phnom Reab Pagoda

My second activity is sand mountain or ពូនភ្នំខ្សាច់

The reason that we do this, because we believe our Karma will be gone and it'll bring us luck.


My last activity of the day is Food ;) food again !!!!!!!!

I would like to introduce all of you about our local food !!!

I don't have to describe, it does taste so good anyway.

if you had chance to visit Cambodia, please try these things.

thank you so much for reading my blog, please do contact me if you visit Cambodia.

bye bye !!!
