More than 250 boats and 16,000 competitors will participate in three days of racing during this year’s Water Festival in Phnom Penh, government officials said yesterday.


The boat races are an integral part of the annual holiday – which this year will be from November 13 to 15 – and it has been two years since they were held.
Last year, the government canceled the event, claiming the water levels of the river were too low.

Ministry of Labor: 4 paid vacation days for all workers and employees from November 13 until November 16 2016.

If the enterprise/establishment can't stop its activities the head of the enterprise/establishment has to coordinate with the employees in order to look for volunteers and offer them another substitute holiday for which they must be paid public holiday pay.
