British Ambassador to Cambodia H.E. Dominic Williams has expressed his sincere congratulations to Cambodia on breaking the Guinness World Record for the Largest Display of Origami Hearts.
“The great efforts of the Cambodian people mean that they have surpassed the United Kingdom! But I do not feel sorry and I congratulate the Cambodian people on this impressive victory!” he wrote on his Facebook page last evening.
Cambodia yesterday won another world record for the Largest Display of Origami Hearts.
A total of 3,917,805 origami hearts have been being displayed in the compound of Angkor Wat Temple in Siem Reap province for the Angkor Sankranta 2023 to be held from April 14 to 16.
The last record was made by the United Kingdom in 2019 with only 53,704 origami hearts.
Cambodia also attempted to break another world record for the largest Madison dance during the Angkor Sankranta 2023.
In the Angkor Sankranta 2015, Cambodia earned the Guinness World Records for the largest Madison dance with 2,015 participants, and for the giant Nom Ansorm, Cambodian sticky rice cake, weighing 4.04 tonnes.
