DirectRooms.com reveals that the Cambodian seaside resort of Sihanoukville will be holding a number of events and colourful parades to usher in the Chinese New Year on the 3rd February 2011
Many Cambodians are of Chinese ancestry and have imported their ancient customs and traditions which can be seen during the Chinese New Year holidays. Sihanoukville tourists will be able to witness colourful dragon dance parades, firework displays and shrines festooned with ornaments and candles. The resort is expected to be quite busy with foreign tourists and Cambodians all heading to it for the festivities
Restaurants in Sihanoukville will lay on special festive meals and the opportunity of tasting a traditional moon cake. As it is the dry season along the northern Gulf of Thailand coast, on which Sihanoukville is sited, visitors will be able to watch the sun slowly setting while sitting on the beach enjoying a seafood barbecue.
In the days leading up to Chinese New Year’s Eve the cheap Sihanoukville hotels start filling up and remain full until nearly a week after. This long holiday usually draws tourists to the resort and as well as busy hotels, the bars and eateries in town also do a brisk trade.
Lek Boonlert, marketing head of DirectRooms said: “The festive period around the Chinese New Year demotes a traditional vacation period for Cambodian citizens. The amount of foreign tourists coupled with the rush of local visitors creates a need for potential visitors to run an online search for available accommodation establishments.”
