Seeing in Christmas and the New Year in Siem Reap may not seem like an obvious combination, given that Siem Reap, and indeed Cambodia as a whole, does not really celebrate Christmas at all, at least not in the same way as the Western world
Online PR News – 10-November-2010 – – Visitors staying at a cheap Siem Reap hotel during that time of the year may be surprised by just what an enjoyable and exciting experience Christmas and the New Year in Siem Reap really is.
Numerous hotels and restaurants in Siem Reap commemorate the occasion – often referred to as “Krissmass” or even the French term “Bon Noel”, given that there is no local equivalent for the word – with a range of gala dinners and other notable special events, and New Year’s Eve itself is even more exciting.
The whole of Pub Street, along with numerous close and adjoining streets, becomes one big party area on New Year’s Eve, and there are also many other places that turn on the celebrations in a big way, including the Hotel de la Paix, which is situated just five minutes away from Pub Street is widely regarded as having one of the finest kitchens in the whole of Siem Reap. The Hotel de la Paix features special dinners for guests on both Christmas and New Year’s Eve.
