"Khmer Sankrant in Thailand" Celebrates Cambodian New Year with Cultural Festivities

Phnom Penh, April 8, 2024: The ESEA Youth Working Group in Thailand, in partnership with the Cambodian Embassy and the Ministry of Labor and Vocational Training, hosted the vibrant "Khmer Sankrant in Thailand" on April 7, 2024. This festive event, held in several Thai provinces including Surin, Rayong, Chonburi, Saraburi, Chachoengsao, and Samut Prakan, drew more than 1,500 Cambodian students residing and studying in Thailand to celebrate the traditional Khmer New Year 2567.

Kicking off with a religious ceremony rooted in Khmer Buddhist traditions, the celebrations featured an array of traditional games such as throwing a thorn, throwing a box, pulling a towel, hiding a towel, and dancing. The atmosphere was one of joy and unity, reminiscent of a gathering of brothers and sisters. Attendees also had the opportunity to savor Khmer cuisine and explore a variety of Khmer products on display, including Ansam cakes, Khmer pepper cakes, and traditional Khmer clothing. This not only provided a taste of home for the students but also offered visitors a chance to immerse themselves in the rich culture and civilization of Cambodia.

"Khmer Sankrant in Thailand" served as a poignant reminder of the importance of preserving cultural heritage and provided a platform for Cambodian students abroad to connect with their roots and celebrate their identity in a foreign land.
