Chúc mừng năm mới!

Dragon, Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Happy Lunar New Year! 2013 is the Year of the Snake and, in Vietnam, will be celebrated with lion dances, dragon dances, visits to family and offerings in pagodas to ensure luck for the new year. Above is a photograph I took in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, last February. While Khmer New Year is actually in April, Cambodia has a large Chinese population so Lunar New Year is also celebrated.

Ever wonder how much money goes into the red envelopes?
