    Earliest forms of Racing Canoes
    The first canoes used were generally converted fishing canoes. Canoes were of all manner of length and therefore weight, but of similar design. With such variance in canoes, the choice of canoe for racing was critical as canoes of this era were not built so much for speed, but more for practicality, being often heavy, ruggedly built, beamy and short by today standards with little attempt at streamlining.

    Bon Om Touk (The Cambodian Water Festival) is an extremely important cultural event in Cambodia that marks the natural spectacle of the reversing flow of the Tonle Sap River. The natural phenomenon occurs during the monsoon season when the water levels of the lower Mekong become so high that it reverses the flow of the Tonle Sap River, forcing the water back up on itself. This event also marks the start of the fishing season and provides a vital source of income for many rural Cambodians. Bon Om Touk begins on the full moon in November and parties, celebrations and cultural displays take place during the next three days of the festival. But the main attraction is the boat races which is a tradition that dates back to the ninth century and the reign of King Jayavarman II. The event has a great carnival atmosphere with markets and food stalls lining the banks and each evening closes with a fireworks display over the river.
    People come from all over to join the celebrations. School is closed, and most workers go on vacation. More then a million Cambodians gather at the river banks to celebrate; those who can't find hotel rooms often just camp out along the streets.
