On the full moon night of Water Festival days (Bon Om Touk) people put floating decorations made with lotus flowers, incense and candles on the river, as a sign of good luck.
The same night many also pray to the moon by putting things like fruits, coconut and special rice in front of their houses. The moon will give them good luck!
This year Cambodia celebrates its annual water festival from November, 9 to 12.
The natural phenomenon of the reversing of the flow of water in both the Mekong River and the Tonle Sap lake, after the end monsoon season is commemorated.
At Siem Reap great party music, dances and boat races!
