A Cambodian friend bought me ticket from an agency, so the price is half cheaper (8 usd). However I still think that I was wasted of that amount of money. The village was built by a bank of China and there are some details in the architecture and performance are not from Cambodia. In the wax museum, even the name... More

This is a great place where we can learn about Cambodia history and culture. It is organized in small villages representing one part of the country/cultual influence. They have a daily show program to follow so you can also enjoy different performances. Plan to visit it in the afternoon when most part of the shows is scheduled.

I'm surprised that I had not visited Cambodian Cultural Village, in all of my prior 7 months in Siem Reap. I had heard or read some poor reviews, and based upon that, I was pleasantly surprised. Starting in the afternoon, there was a full on schedule of shows that you could attend, with 10 minute breaks in between, that would... More

I am particularly interested in Khmer wedding ceremony presented in the village, like the custom and the way they celebrate. I also found a good website about khmer wedding : khmer-wedding-inspiration.com. Lots of photos to see how cambodian people celebrates their wedding.

I love tacky stuff. Things like amusement parks and museums. Basically for $15 you get to see a strange mish mash of Tom&Jerry statues, alongside replicas of significant Cambodian monuments, a couple of random (poorly curated) museums of Cambodian cultural and natural history. And you walk around to different sections watching performances of Khmer weddings, traditional Khmer dances, performance pieces... More

There are only a few attractions that are properly maintained. Perhaps i went on a weekday and all the so called dances in the brochure didn't happen. Only went for a Khmer mixed performance at the New Theatre which sort of saved the day. Rip off for tourists (i didn't see many)

This is absolute CRAP. Even if you are happy to throw your money away here, you will need to spend the whole day here to get $5 worth of value. Your time is more precious than that. If you absolutely insist on wasting your time and money,do not go before 2 pm as almost everything is locked up and deserted.... More

This place is overall a forgettable experience. Spend your money and time somewhere else. The facade of the place is grand, but once you're inside, it's boring, almost depressing. There's a lot of walking space, and plants, and some benches. But most of the "attractions" are abandoned. There was a cultural show, but it just a bunch of guys doing... More

This place has a range of village buildings. The shows are spaced far apart and to see all you would need to spend the whole day. Take the electric cart and pick your time to match the show of your choice.

For $15 definitely felt ripped off, I don't know if it was because it was a Sunday, but their was literally nothing happening. Huge seating areas empty, so boring, what a crock! Certainly know have to bleed a tourist, thinking I was going to get a great cultural learning experience, instead snooze-ville, don't get ripped of, stop by the road... More
