Overview
More
"Smile of Angkor" is the first grand Epic daily show that revives the Angkor dynasty in all aspects. It's the most worth view show in Cambodia. From foundation to prosperity, tale to folk customs, past to present, Smile of Angkor expresses the original culture with the highest technology It's a splendid performance directed by the experts of the Cambodia Culture and Fine Arts Ministry and the director team of the Closing Ceremony of 2008 Olympic Games. It's a legendary show that revives all the myths from the reliefs of Angkor Temples with our grand stage and the brightest stars. There is a buffet at the venue to allow you to dinner before the show. A small and cosy restaurant is dedicated to the individual visitors (non-group) but be aware that it s a huge buffet for Asian group so don't expect for food and Western standard level. But you will be able to see all the nationalities of Asia and to taste differents foods : Khmers, Vietnamese, Korean... Be aware that during the high season there should have so queue for the bbq which know a big success. During the show you can not take photos or videos. We wish to welcome you

The food was terrible and the show was lackluster. I would be hard-pressed to express just how bad the food was without being mean. The show had some good talented performers involved, but the overall show was laughable. Literally. I laughed out loud a few...More

1. The food was edible, but nothing you would pay for otherwise. 2. The costumes and props were well done. But the show was more like a costume parade than a performance. The show was very fragmented. The only parts worth looking out for are...More

Not worth to watch, poorly performed, nothing really special and badly put together, plus it was so noisy full of groups especially from China who were so so loud. Overall I would not recommend it to anyone, waste of time and money.
