This was one of the highlights of my trip. There is a very small seating area which only fits around 20 people, so its very intimate. The stage is in a garden with beautiful trees. The dancers are phenomenal - beautiful, professional and captivating. We...More

Very nice show at a lovely property. They have a big stage for the dancers and you are seated in gazebo with only about 25 guests. Compare that to the big touristy shows with crowds and noise. The emphasis is on art and helping the...More

Thank you for coming to support the Sacred Dancers of Angkor and seeing the legend carved on Angkor wall come to life. Sadly the flute player will not be able to improve as it is the Khmer flute and not the conventional European flute and...More

Loved meeting the wonderful dancers in an up close and person showing of their beautiful dance techniques. Their performance tells the story of a country persecuted and through perseverance and faith - survives. The dancers are elegant and professionally trained through years of hard work.

Most enjoyable, skilled presentation requiring dancers’ dedicated years of practice to perfect. Recommend a visit if you are in Siem Reap.

Great show, hope they can improve the seating arrangement. People coming later and seating behind can hardly see the beautiful performance. You really want the guests to see the culture.

It was really a great performance, executed by professional dancers, trained in a real spiritual way. And the money goes only for the dancers who were children from villages helped by the association NKFC so it is also a good cause.

Hi, for the children under 12 years old they need a ticket. The price is 15$ for them. The best way is to book by email or phone, because for the moment you cannot buy a ticket for the children online.

Sorry for the delay, but I have been away. Please email on the contact email to organise tickets directly - this way you don't have to pay unnecessary commission to hotels or tuk tuk drivers. Hope this helps
