Cambodia has a unique culture among other Asian countries and of course a wonderful lovely people of the world. Cambodian people are friendly and soft when talking to everyone around them and really respectful to either kids, adutls and older people.

If they celebrate 3 days wedding party for the bride and the groom, the parents and the new couple would invite hundreds of thousand of people to come by deviding into two or three different group for the first day guests, second day guests and the third day guests. But these are not popular anymore because it involve with huge expeneses and need a lot of perparation along the way to get all the thing setup. Imagine just under 100 people or guests you would busy enough to prepare all the items, stuffs for party or wedding party. Like in the western world, people don’t really like to invite a lot of people or guests to come unless they are a very famous person and able to absorb with all kind of expenses.
