In a public announcement on its website, The US Embassy says it will “be closed from Friday, February 1, through Monday, February 4”
for the King Father’s cremation and associated activities. An influx of over three million people into Phnom Penh is expected during this four-day period, with many activities centered in the Wat Phnom area. Due to the increase in population and government-mandated road closures, movement around the city will be heavily restricted. The U.S. Embassy advises all U.S. citizens to exercise caution while traveling in and around Phnom Penh, and strongly recommends avoiding large crowds. The Embassy will reopen Tuesday, February 5.
