This has got to be the coolest airport welcomes ever!
Tourists arriving at Siem Reap International Airport were greeted by a flash mob as the number of “passengers” *(perhaps they mean visitors) in Siem Reap reached the two million mark.
A fun flash mob to celebrate an important milestone! How fun is that? The dance routine started with a traditional Khmer dance (watch out for the nice hand gesture) and ended with a hiphop music.
The dancers are not hired professionals, according to Cambopedia. They are probably airport staff with no dancing experience – nor the type who could tell the difference between a great guitar and an ordinary guitar – and could have been trained ahead for this performance. The tourists were very much entertained and you gotta love the ones who danced with the group.
I wish they’d do another one in Phnom Penh, say in front of the Independence Monument.
