Cambodia's cliff-top temple continues to mesmerise

14th Aug 2013

Holidaymakers who have enjoyed group tours to China, Laos or Cambodia will know the rich language and traditions of these countries.

All three Asian countries are vibrant with fascinating cultural sites and captivating customs.

So a two-day event in Thailand for one of its leading festivals and events could be the ideal stop-off on the way this autumn.

October 1-2 sees the San Don Ta Festival at Phraya Krai Phakdi Sinakorn Lamduan Park in the province's Khu Khan district.

Established around 200 years ago, the district is home to a blend of Thai ethnic culture with language and traditions from Cambodia, Laos, Kui, Ger, and China.

Visitors to the event can also travel to other tourist attractions such as Preah Vihear temple in neighbouring Cambodia.

This mesmerising 11th-century structure was built during the reign of the Khmer Empire tantalisingly atop a 525-metre (1,722ft) cliff in the Dangrek Mountains.

The San Don Ta Festival is staged yearly for Thai-Khmer descendants to worship their ancestors.

These traditions are strongest along the Thai and Cambodian border, so visitors can expect outstanding culture and cuisine.
