Cambodia, like many other Buddhist countries, has many festivals and ceremonies. People here are very attached to their traditions and if you come to Cambodia, you have to accept it despite the fact that it could be noisy, start early and finish late.
There is no fixed calendar for ceremonies, it can happen anytime. If you despise loud people and music, please do not come to Cambodia and certainly do not put the blame on us, as we have absolutely no control over it!
Angkor Zen Retreat Center is located 3 kilometers from Siem Reap, Cambodia. Siem Reap is the capital city of Siem Reap Province in northwestern Cambodia, and a popular resort town as the gateway to Angkor temples region.
