No more (wedding) parties in the streets...

Postby Loy9 » Thu Jan 14, 2016 1:06 pm

... at least not in Chroy Changvar. A precedent?

According to Khmer Note

From today on no more wedding parties can be organized in the streets.
According to the letter, issued on December 15 2015 by the governor of Khan Chroy Changvar no more parties (weddings, funerals, ...) can be organized on National Road 6 and other major roads on the territory of Sangkat Chroy Changvar, Sangkat Prek Leap, Sangkat Bakhaeng in Khan Chroy Changvar, Phnom Penh.
It was noticed that organizing all kind of parties in the streets affected the beautiful landscape of the city and caused traffic congestions and led to traffic accidents.
The governor issued a letter to the people to stop organizing parties in the street and informed the chiefs of the 3 Sankats to stop this abuse immediately.
However, the letter only concerns Khan Chroy Changvar. The other Khans in Phnom Penh have no rules to organize parties in the streets.

Now? Did you mean "have to pay MORE tea money now?" :mrgreen:

Every new created rule can be cancelled at a later moment as a gift to the people. As we saw recently.

In all seriousness; I HOPE things are changing step by step but it'll be a long journey.

I don't have a problem with the events, It's the loud music from dawn till dusk most annoying. The last few weeks its every 2 times a week. Hopefully it wont be moved onto the pavements or inside the houses to avoid the rules :?

I see that that city-dwellers are organizing their wedding parties more and more in wedding venues. I don't know if they're also playing loud music inside/outside those venues since I try to avoid all kinds of Khmer parties.
To be honest, I even don't know if a wedding party organized in a specific venue is combined with a traditional wedding ceremony at the house of the bride...
Looks like I'll have to attend the next occasion and do some field work. :mrgreen:

Contrary to popular belief, there are regulations for erecting wedding tents on the streets of Phnom Penh. But not all authorities know the rules, and they don’t apply to everyone.
