Two New Year Celebrations in Siem Reap

The center of the party world in Siem Reap, Cambodia is on Pub Street and between now and February 18, 2018, visitors will have a great chance to join the celebration.

While Pub Street is usually the place for foreigners in Cambodia (especially Angkor Wat Bar) there is one exception. Every Western New Year’s Eve they have a Countdown on Pub Street. It has become a huge Cambodian party as thousands of people from Phnom Penh take the bus to Siem Reap.

This Western New Year’s Eve should be truly crazy! Check out this video 

And just 5 week’s later, another new year will be celebrated. Chinese New Year in Cambodia is two weeks of celebrations, with the actual day in 2018 being February 16th. In Cambodia, nearly one million Cambodians of Chinese heritage actively celebrate the festival in the tradition of their ancestors. Although not one of the official holidays in Cambodia it is still one of the most celebrated events of the year and sees an estimated 60% of the Cambodian population partaking in the festivities.

Chinese New Year is all about family so many people will return to their birthplace in the countryside. But all over Siem Reap, and especially on Pub Street, visitors will experience the Year of the Dog among thousands from all over the world.

Most visitors will also visit Angkor Park and the luckiest visitors will experience the only zipline eco-adventure inside the Park – Angkor Zipline

  • Restrictions can vary for each tour.

    General Health

    General health and fitness levels vary for each activity. For example, a zipline tour is very exciting, and the ziplining itself is not physically demanding but does require some short hiking and climbing some steep stairs. Pregnant women should not zipline, primarily because you are in a harness. Please consult a medical professional before attempting adventure activities during your pregnancy.

    Age

    We recommend our tours for anyone between 5 and 95 in good health.
