This show was recommended as something to do in Siem Reap by the New York Times. It is done by a small group of young performers using string puppets . It is a great introduction to Khmer culture with a good dose of humor. Some of the young people are more confident than others in English but wonderful to see a team pull something like this off. I have never seen anything similar elsewhere in all my travels and would strongly recommend it as something to do in Siem Reap.

We bought the tickets as a last minute idea but wow I am so glad we did. We walked up to a beautiful establishment and was welcomed by the friendliest people. We were offered refreshments at the bar and got talking to one of the lovely owners who introduced us to Archie (beautiful friendly dog),rub his belly and you will have a friend for life. Then we were shown through to the performing area were we were lucky enough to have a front row seat. Don't want to give away too much about the performance but all I can say is wow, the intro was informative, the performers are so talented, the puppets amazing and the overall experience was phenomenal. I would recommend to anyone who is visiting Siem Reap to come and see this show. Get away from the touristy Angkor Wat and pub Street and enjoy a traditional Cambodian show with the warmest, friendliest welcome. A big Thank you to everyone there who made our experience fantastic.

The Bambu Stage puppet show was one of my favorite things we did in Cambodia. The performers are talented and you can tell how passionate they are and how they love what they’re doing. I couldn’t help but smile the entire time. You even get to try your hand at the puppets after the show. If I am ever back to siem reap, I would love to see another show. The food was fantastic, and plentiful as well. We had the pleasure of meeting the owners and they were wonderful. Overall it was a fantastic experience!

We had a wonderful time following a typical Cambodian village story told by the artistically carved shadow puppets and their skillful puppeteers.

I was excited to see a traditional shadow puppet show and was a smidge apprehensive that it'll take some guessing on what the story was going to be about (either the performance was going to be silent and requires the audience to have prior knowledge of the tale or all in Khmer) but I was pleasantly surprised! The performers did the skit in Khme-nglish! (Yea just made that up...)

The venue has great ambiance and the owner welcomes you and gives a brief introduction to remind you to just pay closer attention and you'll be able to hear the performers' English lines and jokes! Talented young folks!

Bambu Stage operates as a social enterprise within the community with the goal to contribute to a sustainable arts sector working and living in Cambodia; by nurturing local talent in professional, technical, and artistic collaboration. Indeed, mosquitoes here are as passionated and committed as our artists! Hope to see you again. All the best,
