Khmer New Year: History of bus tickets

In the past, it has always been a challenge to book bus tickets during Khmer New Year. Not to mention there is often a tendency of seeing prices increase across bus companies.

However, since last year, BookMeBus CEO Langda Chea has been advocating a NO TO PRICE INCREASE for bus tickets during Cambodian Holidays – Khmer New Year included. His efforts have not been in vain as BookMeBus is now able to sell bus tickets at regular prices.

Not only do you see SALE signs popping up everywhere – definitely a good time to shop! – but its common to see flashes of red and gold abound. Chinese lanterns are also predominantly decorating the shops around the city.

Fast Facts: Chinese New Year

  • Chinese New Year is also known as the Spring Festival in China.
  • It is the most important holiday in China.
  • It is split between two important dates: Chinese New Year’s eve and Chinese New Year’s day.
  • The date is different each year on the Gregorian (internationally-used) calendar, but is always between January 21th and February 20th.
  • 2017 is the Year of the Rooster.

Chinese New Year in Cambodia

Although the Spring Festival is celebrated by Chinese, Cambodians and Vietnamese have been carrying the tradition of celebrating the New Year throughout the generations. In Cambodia, Khmer and Chinese, and even other nationalities do celebrate this as well. However, it is NOT considered an Official holiday in the Kingdom of Wonder.

Many locals treat this holiday with similar observance as Pchum Ben. What can be observed is that the streets would be a little bit quiet, some stores would be closed, and several employees take time off to spend time with their families.
