Children's Traditional Games in the Asia-Pacific Region

UNESCO Bangkok is contributing to the safeguarding of endangered traditional children’s games in targeted Asian-Pacific countries through a project funded by the Republic of Korea Funds-in-Trust through the support of the City of Gangneung. Children’s games from 14 different ethnic groups in four different countries in Southeast Asia will be researched and documented. Local research teams are working in Phnom Penh, Cambodia; Luang Prabang, Lao PDR; Penang, Malaysia; Bangkok and northern Thailand. This video of selected children’s games in Cambodia was produced by Ophidian Films.
