Hei Neak Ta 2016

The Hei Neak Ta – or procession of the spirits – marks the end of the celebrations of the New Year for the Chinese community of Phnom Penh.

For the occasion, thousands of people flock into the streets and participate in a colourful and extravagant procession in which possessed spirit mediums are paraded among the crowd and bless local shops and houses.

 

For more information, my friend and colleague Dene Chen, wrote an article regarding this unusual ceremony in the Cambodia Daily.
