  • This was fabulous! A variety of performances suitable for all ages with a powerful background to add. This was a real highlight of our trip and I would recommend it to everyone. Never have I seen performers enjoy themselves so much - such a pleasure !

  • We were glad to book this show. The whole performance dancing, singing and music was very wonderful. We enjoyed the show very much. Thats something you shouldnt miss if you visit Cambodia.

  • This dance show was a highlight of our time spent in Phnom Penh. The student performers create an atmosphere for the audience for fall in love with a piece of Cambodia's heritage. The costumes, dances, and music are all beautiful and full of life. Simply a must see.

  • It was great to see in person what I had only seen on TV before. Amazing agility and grace of the feet and hands. Yes, I tried it in private, couldn't get even close to achieving the positions. The dexterity just wasn't there...
    It must take hours to get on all the make-up and get it looking perfect!

  • The story of how Cambodia almost lost its culture is heartbreaking. This show is a testament to the courage and resiliency of the Cambodian people. Very heartwarming to see how the music and dance is being saved for future generations to enjoy. I was moved by the performances. The show is very professionally staged and the dancers and musicians are superb. Please take the time to visit while you are in Phnom will not be disappointed.

  • A must do while in Phnom Penh!!

  • This is a fantastic way to spend an hour to do - wonderful show and would highly recommend this to everyone. Easy booking via viator.

  • Very beautiful show, the customs where also realy beautiful. Old stories of the harvest, fishing where performed by the dances.
    You realy should go to this show. It's not a tourist scam but a beatiful performance of cambodian culture.

  • This was a fantastic look at the traditional Cambodian dance. It is wonderful to see young people keeping these traditions alive. The theater is comfortable and cool, with great views for everyone. I would highly recommend this experience.

  • This was the most fabulous show, so so much more than I expected. The Pol Pot era in Cambodia had tragic consequences for artists of all persuasions, including musicians and dancers. Cambodian Living Arts is working to revitalise and grow the arts, and ensure that traditional dance and music is not lost by passing on the intricate skills to young Cambodians. Every dance was beautifully costumed, demonstrating the passion and skills of the performers. The accompanying music was energetic and engaged the audience, and the dancers were graceful and elegant, as well as being excellent actors, as they told the stories of the dances. It was so much fun - I'd love to go again!
