A very important insight into the coming year. The Royal Ploughing Ceremony has its roots steeped in history and is a festival that fuses tradition, royalty, ancient rituals and bovine soothsayers. Kampong Cham, the heart and soul of Cambodia Kampong Cham is a warmly welcoming central province where you can discover authentic Cambodian experiences with friendly locals, visit stunning temples and relish scenes of idyllic countryside. A rare opportunity. Dolphin spotting on the Mekong. The Mekong River runs fast and wild from the towering plains of the Tibetan Plateau to the swampy lowlands of South Vietnam, carrying in its bosom one of the highest aquatic biodiversities in the world. The river is home to a rare species of marine mammal known as the Irrawaddy dolphin. Destination - Nanning is known as the "Green City" because of its abundance of lush subtropical foliage. Located in the South of Guangxi. A must see for any visitor to China. Q&A - In this issue we talk to a veteran of the car industry, James Zemke. He has been an instrumental part of Mercedes here in Cambodia and around the word for almost 30 years. As the General Director of Star Auto (Cambodia) we can read about his experiences in the business. Lets explore - Preah Vihear, the thousand-year-old temple in Northern Cambodia is not to be missed by enthusiasts of classical Khmer Architecture or visitors looking for something special off the beaten path. Zhengzhou, a historic centre of China. As one of the 8 ancient cities of China and capital of Henan province, Zhengzhou is famed for its cultural and historical attractions dating back thousands of years. The bustling metropolis is now home to more than 10 million, and also boasts some incredible modern architecture, a distinctive local cuisine, and some breathtaking natural scenery in the surrounding Central Plains area. Kep Crabs. The seaside town of Kep is known for its sandy beaches and warm waters. Walking along the winding promenade, visitors get a glimpse of the reason Kep is becoming a popular tourist spot. Fishermen can be seen wading knee-deep into the waters with their woven baskets, emerging with their prize: glistening fresh crabs. So sit back, relax, and let the world fly by as you enjoy your flight with Cambodia Angkor Air. The Editorial Team

holidays april - july 2021

cambodian Khmer New Year 14-15-16 April Cambodian New Year or Chaul Chnam Thmey in the Khmer language, literally "Enter New Year", is the name of the Cambodian holiday that celebrates the New Year. The holiday lasts for three days beginning on New Year's Day, which is the end of the harvesting season, when farmers enjoy the fruits of their labour before the rainy season begins. Cambodians also use Buddhist Era to count the year based on the Buddhist calendar.

Visak Bochea Day

Labour Day

26 April Visak Bochea Day is a holiday commemorating the birth, enlightenment, and death of Gautama Buddha. During the day offerings are made to monks and in the evening, candlelit processions are held.

01 May International Labour Day is a celebration of the working classes, and promoted by the international labour movement, socialists, communists and anarchists each year. Its was also an ancient European spring festival.

King Norodom Sihamoni Birthday 14 May

King's Mother Birthday 18 June

This public holiday was established to celebrate the 69th birthday of HM King Norodom Sihamoni, who was born on May 14th. Norodom Sihamoni is the reigning King of Cambodia, and his birthday is marked with fireworks from 7pm at Phnom Penh's Riverside, the Royal Palace is beautifully decorated and illuminated.

Cambodia's King Mother Norodom Monineath celebrates her 86th birthday on June 18th, and the day is an official public holiday in the Kingdom.

Royal Ploughing Ceremony 30 April The Royal Ploughing Ceremony is a ritual derived from Hinduism. The ceremony marks the beginning of the rice cultivation season.

weather

what’s the weather like in Cambodia in april - july? April is one of the hottest months of the year in Cambodia, with average temperatures of 35°C, and the possibility of the mercury hitting the 40°C's. The chances of rain are still low, although the odd shower close to the end of the month is to be expected with rainy season just around the corner (the rains generally start in early/mid-May). Exploring the Angkor Temples can be hard work in these hot temperatures, so plan for several shorter stints rather than all-day visits. The heat does have its advantages however as crowd numbers tend to be lower at the main temple sites. Very hot, dry weather is the norm across the entire country making for great travel conditions. Rain is unlikely to have fallen for many months making the terrain dusty with little vegetation. For the more committed sun worshippers, this is the ideal time of year to factor in a few days of R&R on the south coast beaches of Sihanoukville, Kep or the smaller islands of Koh Rong and Kong Rong Samloem. As the month goes on the odd tropical storm could deliver some welcome rainfall to the parched land, however at this time of year these will be short lived.

The oxen are adorned with golden and red attire, with several royal court official joining the procession in similarly ornate clothing, some holding large golden parasols to offer shade from the mid-morning sun. Anticipation and excitement across the farming community build upon completion of the ploughing part, as the ceremony moves on to the auspicious and occasionally ominous, prophecies of the year ahead. The sacred oxen are unburdened from their yokes and lead to seven large golden trays, each containing either soy beans, corn, rice, sesame, grass, water or rice wine. Their mystical choices of feed give rise to specific indications for the upcoming harvest season. Crops will enjoy bumper yields if the oxen feast on their particular trays – the more consumed, the greater the harvest.

the heart and soul of Cambodia


Kampong Cham is a warmly welcoming central province where you can discover authentic Cambodian experiences with friendly locals, visit stunning temples and relish scenes of idyllic countryside. The Mekong river forms the province’s Eastern border supplying many rubber plantations with water and fishermen with bountiful catches. Kampong Cham is also renowned for fresh produce such as jasmine rice, cashew nuts and durian. The provincial capital – a charming town on the banks of the Mekong River – is also called Kampong Cham. Despite a common misconception that it is named after the Chams, a Muslim ethnic minority group, the name translates as “Waiting Port” in Khmer. This is a reference to the town’s origin as a popular stop for waterborne transport. Getting there from Phnom Penh takes around 3 hours by road. Grab an adventurous streetside snack at Skuon along the way – deep-fried tarantulas! The riverside area is a focal point of Kampong Cham with a palm tree-lined promenade and garden park. Perfect for an evening stroll with a selection of street food stalls. You can also take a relaxing sunset boat trip on the Mekong.

dolphin Spotting on the mekong The Mekong River runs fast and wild from the towering plains of the Tibetan Plateau to the swampy lowlands of South Vietnam, carrying in its bosom one of the highest aquatic biodiversities in the world. Among many other dwellers, the 4000-km-long river is home to a rare species of marine mammal known as the Irrawaddy dolphin. The Middle Mekong, a stretch of the river that runs throughout northeastern Cambodia, has become a tourist destination in its own right. Every year flocks of tourists come here with one objective in mind: to catch a fleeting glimpse of the shy and graceful Irrawaddy dolphin. Kratie stands at the core of the dolphin-spotting craze, specifically Sambok Commune, Chetr Borei District, Kratie. A small, sleepy town resting on the banks of the Middle Mekong, Kratie’s appeal goes far beyond its enigmatic cetaceans: with long streets lined with tall palm trees, enough colonial-style architecture to have you exploring for hours, scrumptious Cambodian delicacies to be savoured (like kralan or sticky rice with coconut milk stuffed in bamboo cane), and some of the friendliest locals you’ll meet during your stay in Cambodia, Kratie is a city of undeniable charm. Villages surrounding Kratie are definitely visit-worthy. The countryside lives up to tales of lush Cambodian countryside, with beautifully polished stilted wooden homes set amid clusters of palm trees, and green rice paddies that stretch as far as the eye can see.

Cambodia's coastline offers scenic and charming getaways for tourists, locals and expats. Despite the constant and rapid evolution of the fast-developing Southeast Asian nation, destination towns such as Kampot and Kep are foodies favourites, while the jungle sprawl and mountainous Koh Kong entice adventurers. The islands off the southern coast (basking in the Gulf of Thailand) remain an attractive relaxing option, although there are plenty of adrenaline activities to keep everyone entertained.

the grandeur of

preah vihear Preah Vihear, the thousand-year-old temple in Northern Cambodia is not to be missed by enthusiasts of classical Khmer Architecture or visitors looking for something special off the beaten path. As Cambodia’s second UNESCO world heritage site, Preah Vihear joined the elite club of 1,031 properties in 2008, thanks to its exceptionally well-preserved buildings, outstanding architecture, and integration of nature and manmade structures. The temple’s original name, Sri Sikharesvara, meaning “a mountain top”, is still a fitting description. Situated atop a 525-metre cliff, it offers dramatic views of the plains below, which include a wide and photogenic expanse of protected forests. “The site is exceptional for the quality of its architecture, which is adapted to the natural environment and the religious function of the temple, as well as for the exceptional quality of its carved stone ornamentation,” according to UNESCO’s evaluation of the heritage site. Like many temples of the era, Preah Vihear is intended to represent Mount Meru, the mythological centre of the Hindu and Buddhist universe and home of the gods. It was originally dedicated to the god Shiva, one of Hinduism’s three central deities, before being reconsecrated as a Buddhist temple. Construction of Preah Vihear began in the 9th century by Survayarman II. The distance from Angkor is 150 kilometres.

kep

crabs

The sleepy seaside town of Kep is located 164km south of Phnom Penh and is known for its chic French colonial architecture, sandy beaches and warm waters. However, walking along the winding promenade away from the main beach, visitors get a glimpse of the real reason Kep is becoming an increasingly popular tourist spot. Every day, fishermen can be seen wading knee-deep into the waters with their woven baskets, emerging with their prize: glistening f resh crabs.

58

AngkoR


Kep crab is a blue swimmer crab especially renowned for its taste in curries. The town is so proud of its regional icon that it has erected a giant crab statue, which greets visitors with a jaunty cocked claw as they drive along to the main beach. Here, seafood is always served fresh from the waves, so it won’t be more than a couple of hours until each crab plucked from the sea is filling the belly of a hungry visitor. Options abound when it comes to sampling the gorgeously sweet and meaty crab. Culinary adventurers head straight to the Kep crab market, where they can choose the choicest live catches from vendor’s baskets, haggling down the price before paying a few thousand riel to have them steamed at a nearby stall. This is the cheapest and most interactive crab experience, but visitors looking for a more hassle-free meal will find it in the homey row of restaurants near the market, which all have crab platters as the highlight of the menu. Served still in the shell often with a thick, peppery sauce, diners get to dig into each crab, scooping out the flesh in a messy and satisfying culinary experience. However, you don’t have to go to Kep to sample its seafood. Phnom Penh’s most modern and creative restaurants also fully appreciate the wonderful ingredient. Crabs pulled out from the ocean are in Phnom Penh markets within hours, still alive and ready to be bought and cooked. Following the philosophy of ‘what grows together, goes together’ equally famous and distinctive pepper of the nearby river town, Kampot is often matched with Kep crab. The balance of heat and fragrance that is unique to Kampot pepper blends and rides along with the sweet, soft flesh of the crab. You can sometimes pair it with pork, avocado, leeks, capsicum, spring onion or a combination of these. Whether eaten straight from the Kep market vendors or in Phnom Penh’s choicest restaurants, the Kep crab is Cambodia’s not-to-be-missed culinary treat.

ATR SAFETY

យន្តហោះប្រភទ េ ATR 72 រចនា ATR 72: DESIGNED WITH SAFETY IN MIND ឡើងដោយផ្តត ោ លើសវុ ត្ថភា ិ ពខ្ពស់ Cambodia Angkor Air is proud to count the ATR 72 among its airliners. This prestigious aircraft is a twin-engine turboprop short-haul airliner built by the French-Italian manufacturer ATR. The ATR 72 is widely recognised as the most cost-effective regional aircraft, a reputation that has made it the preferred choice for short-haul flights. The craft’s innovative design introduces a range of improvements that have dramatically improved the passenger experience. The airliner’s revolutionary design minimises noise within the cabin, thanks to the installation of dynamic vibration absorbers and the use of advanced, soundproof materials. This makes for a silent and serene environment, maximising customer satisfaction. The innovations introduced by the design of the ATR 72 are not limited to passenger comfort. Powered by PW127 engines, the ATR 72 provides outstanding short-field landing performance, particularly for an aircraft of its size. With regards to safety, the ATR 72-500 has been suitably modified to better handle icing, and has a clean safety record. To deal with control surface jams, the ATR 72 has a provision to disconnect the otherwise linked elevator, allowing for the captain or the first officer to have full authority over their respective, independent elevators. With the inclusion of the revolutionary ATR 72, Cambodia Angkor Air offers its customers one of the best flying experiences of any airliner in the region. Clients can enjoy the aircraft on Phnom Penh-Siem Reap, Siem Reap-Sihanoukville and Phnom Penh-Ho Chi Minh City routes, and more to come. Always giving maximum priority to safety, Cambodia Angkor Air continues to invest in new aircrafts that adhere to all international safety requirements.
