This was only $16 USD just something to keep in mind while reading the reviews. The food was mediocre and the dancing was okay. The venue is all open air and sits hundreds of people. We were told to get there early, and I'm glad...More

I didn't like to see the show at all. I expected to watch a nice show to raise money for a good cause, but instead I saw children being exploited for the fun if tourists. There are young children that I feel should be in...More

I am really not a fan of this place. I think a lot of less-informed travelers stop here because they think they are going to see an awesome performance and support a local non-profit. To be honest it's the complete opposite. This children are forced...More

This is a wonderful way to start your night out in Siem Reap. The show, like others have mentioned, is somewhat akin to a children's school production. The stage is spartan but the costumes were nice and some of the kids had some real talent....More

The children (really mostly teenagers) do some traditional Khymer Dances once a week to put the organization on-the-map. From the reviews on Trip Advisor, I am happy to say they have succeeded. Then someone shouts child exploitation? Give me a break! If you visit them...More
