Cambodian New Year Card 2016
Khmer New Year Card 2016 by Chamnan
Time is fast to move from one year to one year. The angel of the year of the Goat 2015 will transfer her duties to the angel of the Monkey 2016 that will be celebrating on April 13, 2016. To take this valuable chance, I would like to say Happy Khmer New Year 2016 to all Cambodian people and the rest of the world, and wish you all the best for the upcoming Cambodian New Year 2016 to all my friends, colleague, families, beloved readers, and people in the world. Please, the Year of the Monkey's angel wishes all be blessed with a peaceful and prosperous living for the whole year through.
The holiday lasts for three days beginning on New Year's Day, which falls on April 13 this year, which is the end of the harvesting season, when farmers enjoy the fruits of their labor before the rainy season begins. Khmers living abroad may choose to celebrate during a weekend rather than just specifically April 13 through 15. These three days called Maha Songkran for first day, Virak Wanabat for second day, and Virak loeurng Sak for final day.
Where Will You Plan to Visit?
Before the New Year, most Cambodian, including myself, will travel to homelands to meet families, relatives, and friends. And after they do good things for their families, they will plan to visit nearby tourism sites or interesting points. The most provinces where they plan to spend their 3-day holidays are: 
  • Temple trip: Siem Reap is the best place to visit temples such as Angkor Wat and biggest cultural event so-called Angkor Sankranta, and Battambang and Pailin are also under their considerations for a waterfall, mountain, and rice field views.
  • Coastal/Seaside trip: Sihanoukville, Kampot, Kep, and Koh Kong – these are good choice to visit nice beaches, island, and fresh seaside.
  •  Nearby Phnom Penh City: Some of the people who has families in Phnom Penh, they consider to eat out nearby restaurants or visit the waterfall in Kirirom resort in Kampong Speu province, and sometimes they go to seaside trip too.

I think not only Cambodian who plan to visit Angkor Wat but also foreigners, so I share with you about Angkor Sankranta (អង្គរសង្ក្រាន្ត) as the following: 

Angkor Sankranta  is an event of Khmer New Year organized by the Union of Youth Federations of Cambodia (UYFC) which is held in Siem Reap province from 13–16 April. Angkor Sankranta is an opportunity for all Cambodians as a united Khmer Family and for foreign friends to receive unforgettable and exquisite experiences during Khmer New Year in Cambodia.

What is My Message for This Year?
Almost every year, I always keep some messages for myself as well as for my beloved readers. So, what is it?
  • Keep doing goodness for society even it is not seen: I always tell myself that human is different so please don’t try others to be yours – just keep trying to solve a social problem for society. Others may not see what you have done good things for your beloved country but you yourself can see it.
  • Never give up on what you love to do: It is true that people have to do what they love, so even though she or he faces any problems, they still keep trying. Sooner or later, you will get what you need.

The message is still the message to keep thinking but the action is a must to do!
