Alexandria Cambodian Community Day Festival


Editorial Review

The theme of the Cambodian Community Day Festival is "Cambodia, the Beautiful," a slogan that aims to draw awareness to the richness of Cambodia's manmade and natural resources. The people, clothing and food of the country's Pailin region is the subject of much attention: Try the Mee Kola, a noodle dish made from rice noodles steamed and cooked with soy sauce, garlic and chives. Performances of Cambodian music and dance will showcase traditional and contemporary techniques, and a handmade scale model of the Angkor Wat temple, the majestic structure that graces the Cambodian flag, will provide visitors with a firsthand glimpse of the country's unique architecture.
