Water Festival in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, held for first time since tragedy in 2010

The Water Festival will be held in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, November 5 to 7 for the first time since 2010 when 353 people were killed in a stampede on the Koh Pich bridge during celebrations in 2010. The festival draws over a million people to the city so travellers should expect large crowds and traffic disruptions.

Sitata reminds travellers to minimize risk by remaining aware of your surroundings and personal security in large crowds. Be aware of exit routes through crowds, and avoid the middle of large crowds. Be ready to react very quickly to any sign of an emergency.
