I went there after reading the reviews of fellow TripAdvisor members and I wasnt disappointed. The way they executed their dances was absolutely wonderful. I will recommend this show to everyone who wants to experience a slice of Cambodian Culture&heritage.

The performances were interesting and the costumes were beautiful, some were very intricate and detailed. We happened upon it and I'm so glad that we stopped to see it. Admission is $15/20/25, depending on where you sit and if you want cushions

It seems a lot of people are bussed here as part of a tourist group so don't fully know what they are going to and have no control over seating. For those booking their own I wondered whether I should book section A, B or C. In the end I booked A just in case but all are fine. It... More

Live music, colourful costumes, self-control and skills of all the artists - everything about this 1h15 show is impressive. In addition, the artists all seem to bring real joy to their performance, which makes the show very living, dynamic and joyful, in addition to formal excellence. Highly recommended!

From the wreckage of the country a beautiful Phoenix has emerged in the form of this dance company. Highly skilled, colourful and hugely energetic these handsome young Cambodians strut their stuff to show their pride in their fast-healing country. Wholly inspiring and not to be missed.

As with all things Cambodian in my albeit somewhat limited touristic view of the country,what shines through for me is the pure enthusiasm of its younger generation.The show was vibrant and well produced,as well as providing insight into the graceful apsara dance form and its accompanying music.A great chance to take in some local colour...don't miss it!

Especially considering the incredible trauma this beautiful country has experienced not so long ago, it's so fabulous to see and enjoy this gorgeous celebration of their rejuvenated culture. We loved it. There are no bad seats .... the more expensive ones just have cushions! (The seats are hard and wooden - keep that in mind.). Definitely worth the time and... More

Was advised to see the show and we were not disappointed. Seating is simple and the stage open air, but there is cover if raining. The show really was great, providing interesting background and context to the dances and culture. The dances themselves were well performed, as was the supporting music. Over all I recommend attending if you have the... More
