"Smile of Angkor" is the first grand Epic daily show that revives...

"Smile of Angkor" is the first grand Epic daily show that revives the Angkor dynasty in all aspects. It's the most worth view show in Cambodia. From foundation to prosperity, tale to folk customs, past to present, Smile of Angkor expresses the original culture with the highest technology

It's a splendid performance directed by the experts of the Cambodia Culture and Fine Arts Ministry and the director team of the Closing Ceremony of 2008 Olympic Games.

It's a legendary show that revives all the myths from the reliefs of Angkor Temples with our grand stage and the brightest stars.

There is a buffet at the venue to allow you to dinner before the show. A small and cosy restaurant is dedicated to the individual visitors (non-group) but be aware that it s a huge buffet for Asian group so don't expect for food and Western standard level. But you will be able to see all the nationalities of Asia and to taste differents foods : Khmers, Vietnamese, Korean... Be aware that during the high season there should have so queue for the bbq which know a big success.

During the show you can not take photos or videos.

We wish to welcome you

Our show tickets included a buffet supper that was o.k. The show is one hour in length and truly was amazing. The stage effects were amazing and the costumes outstanding. There were many different types of acts all of which depicted some of the story of Angkor. Well worth seeing.

I didn't check TripAdvisor before booking this show, BIG MISTAKE! FOOD WAS BAD, SHOW WAS BAD, PEOPLE TEXTED DURING THE ENTIRE SHOW. WASTE OF MONEY, TIME. Best part of the show was the til tuk ride back to the hotel.

The show is professional, the dancing good, interesting stories played out covering the history of Cambodia/Siem Reap. It's a bit loud, and there are sub-titles in 4 languages, though most of the narration is in English.There is a buffet first and this is typical Asian fare - the food is no better or worse than the average Asian restaurant in...

I'm writing this from the buffet before the show, so my comments are related to food - extremely tasteless, like rubber, no single thing that you'd want to try. If you are vegetarian, leave the perimeter like your life depends on it. The floor accommodates about 12 thousand people, and you feel you are part of the conveyer belt and... More

Variety of dance and acrobatic performances pieced together, including a small segment of cultural dance. Arrive early for better food quality. Many large tour group visitors.

Will not go into the whole spiel as the title "Corny and Gimmicky" dated 28 January 2017 nailed it on the head. There were two different show times but we were not aware of that. I recommend if you still want to see the show to show up right before the show and avoid the buffet meal. First show is... More

Visited this on the recommendation of our driver. It was worth it as a cultural experience. The buffet was average with a wide variety of Asian foods. The show was a bit long, 75 minutes and the seats uncomfortable. But the performances, dancers, acrobat were very good and it was an excellent way to learn about Cambodian culture.

We got scammed into spending my partner's birthday here. Many guides get a commission for bringing clients there. These tickets are not refundable. The food was really terrible, super commercial, poor quality and buffet style. Really bad! The show was quite poor as well...... DO NOT DO IT!
