THE baton has been passed to Cambodia as Vietnam bid a warm farewell to their regional friends after a successful hosting of the 31st SEA Games.

The 90-minute long closing ceremony at the My Dinh Indoor Arena witnessed a more relaxed atmosphere yesterday.

There were no flagbearers as athletes from different countries mingled with each other.

The highlight of the ceremony was the hand over of the SEA Games Federation flag to Tea Banh, the deputy Prime Minister and chairman of the Cambodian organising committee.

Cambodia will host the biennial Games for the first time from May 5-16 next year.
