This small orphanage just south of main roundabout provides a traditional cambodian dance and music show around 630pm most evenings. The children as performers are full of energy and also stay afterwards to meet the audience and to practise speaking english. Our audience was very small but the children still performed as if to a large crowd , the cost... More

This is a scam, the owners of this ' association ' are earning money by making children give a show every night. This is what an orphanage should be doing to help children. Please don't go there and close this page.

We visited two years ago. There see progress since our last visit with a new block of building at the rear of the land and paving on the floors. We enjoyed the performance by the children but there were only 6 very young children in total dancing. We were told that there is now a daily performance done by the... More

This Orphanage, easy to reach from the city centre of siem reap, is a wonderful place to visit! A really nice guide showed us whole house for the children, including school, stage, and a nice home for the children! They all seem to be very happy, and even if we were only 4 visitors watching them, they made a great... More

We strolled along to Acodo not quite knowing what to expect, to begin with we were shown the work being undertaken here by one of the young men that has been here for several years. He was telling us in beautifully spoken English what the aims and ambitions are for Acodo. He also told us of his ambitions, that is... More

I was so impressed with the orphans at Acodo. They put on an entertaining show which was well produced and interpreted for foreigners. These children are gorgeous and their dancing was very good. You can see that they really enjoy the interaction with visitors and there was absolutely no pressure to donate at all. When we learned about Acodo's promise... More

The heart is in the right place for most foreigners but this place HURTS instead of helps. Do a quick google search before you go, please!

We have been visiting this orphanage for 4 years and over that time we have seen an incredible amount of work done to improve the conditions for the children. We have donated money for specific items such as fans, whiteboards, food, toiletries, stationary etc all of which we have proof have been purchased. We have been delighted to see other... More

I don't necessarily agree with people who want to shut down all 'orphanages'. It's a more complex issue than whether the children have a living parent(s) or not. What I don't agree with are places like this where you are lied to from the moment you walk in through the gate. Everything there is wrong, ridiculous quotes for the price... More
