It does make the day special for everyone in Cambodia now to countdown on the night of the old year end and the new year start.

During this occasion, the good decoration is done throughout Phnom Penh to warmly welcome the Year 2015. The Independent Monument Park was lighted with the different color to make city more attractive. People from different countries and locals seem to enjoy walking in the evening chatting, walking, jogging, taking photo and riding bicycles. Many vehicles travel near the park creating an image of the busy and crowded city.

Countdown night is very popular in Cambodia as well. Many people having the party wait for the time to come for countdown towards new year. There were fireworks on the sky to loudly announce the coming new year. People went to Dreamland, Riverside and Diamond Island (Koh Pich City).
