Cambodia Snapshots: Chinese New Year Blings

One of the most celebrated ‘holidays’ here in Cambodia is Chinese New Year. It’s not a official holiday but with a large Chinese community, its no wonder, Chinese New Year is even more festive compared to international new year.

    Grander and more festive, indeed! Chinese New Year has been declared a holiday here. That’s Feb. 19, to be exact. I might go to Binondo to join in the celebration! Haha. 🙂
