APAD 038: Empty roads

Posted by on Apr 16, 2011 in A Photo a Day, All things Khmer, Cambodia life, Photo Hunt | 7 comments

This is how Phnom Penh looks like today, on the third and last day of the Khmer New Year celebrations. Most of the people who live and work in Phnom Penh are from the provinces and the Khmer New Year is one big excuse for an exodus back to their hometowns to celebrate the occasion with their families and relatives. The roads are virtually empty and this is one of rare moments that we enjoy the peace and quiet. Come Monday, it will soon be back to the normal hustle-bustle in the capital.

 This is my comeback entry to the Photo Hunt. To see more PH participants or details on how to join, please click this link or this one.
