Answers about Cambodia

Hi,
I read about the Water Festival which takes place in November. Can you please give me more information related to this festival and what tourist attractions are there to see in Cambodia?


Regards,
Mandy

The water Festival (The pirogue Racing Festival) in Phnom Penh is the most magnificent traditional festival of Cambodia. For three days Phnom Penh citizens, foreign tourists and peasants from various provinces gather in the capital to celebrate festival night day. The festival takes place each year in October or November, at the time of the full moon, and is the most extravagant and exuberant festival in the Khmer calendar, outdoing even the new year celebrations. Up to a million people from all walks of life and from all over the country flock to the banks of the Tonle Sap and Mekong Rivers in Phnom Penh to watch traditional boats racing on a huge scale.
When I travel to Cambodia how do I get the tourists visa that I require? What is the average cost of the visa and how long will it allow me to stay in the country?
