While visiting Siem Reap, all travelers must attend, at least once, a performance of Cambodia' s traditional dances, mostly known as "Apsara Dances". "Apsaras" are those celestial dancers that adorn the walls of most temples and monuments within "Angkor Archaeological Park", as well as in very many other places all over Cambodia. The "Apsara Dances", as an important part of the Khmer culture, are not merely dances, but they are meant to convey a story or a message from Cambodia's traditional folklore. "Apsara Dances" are performed at different venues in Siem Reap, as in the sophisticated and luxurious "The Royal Court", at "Sofitel Angkor Phokeethra Golf and Spa Resort", followed by cocktails and buffet dinner with fine dishes from the outstanding Khmer cuisine. Enjoy!

The ambience was great. Seated at dining tables lit by small lights while watching the stage. The drinks and dinner were served very professionally while we were watching the Apsara dances. A four course dinner- and very very tasty.

The traditional Apsara dance performance is held in the courtyard of the luxury Sofitel hotel. The open air performance is combined with a traditional dinner buffet with the food held in clay pots and plants and trees serving as the back-drop. Lanterns strung from the trees provide an intimate ambience. The performance is held next to a small lake which gives it a very natural and traditional setting.

The performance itself has several acts related to Cambodian history and culture in addition to the traditional Apsara dance. The dancers wear exquisite traditional costumes and the performance is accompanied by live music performed by a local band.

Food is excellent although the menu is more traditional Khmer. Service is excellent.

This is a great way to get a taste of with Cambodian history and Khmer culture in a smaller and more intimate setting.
