There are small wax museums depicting how cambodian life is lived. There are installations set up to demonstrate the variety of ethnic groups living in Cambodia. The problem is that it is all under maintained. All of the snack stations were unmanned. We were there for 2 hours and we only saw one 5minute show depicting a traditional wedding. It... More

Wondering if this cultural village is for foreignersif the shows are in khmer? Not refined and very much half hearted display of performances are commercialized at best. Disappointing!

I agree that it is a waste of time to visit the so-called Cultural Village that does not deliver. I was told it was developed by the Chinese from Mainland China. Large park with show sites that offer sub-standard performance. It may fool visitors from the Western world but if you are from the East, forget it. The performance is... More

I didn't find it to be as bad as other reviews suggest. Yes, it's a bit artificial but still an interesting opportunity to see cultural wax museum and ethnic shows. There are plenty of shows running from 11 to approx 3pm. I believe that to visit different performances and to get some additional cultural flavour the place may worth a... More

I had heard great things about the cultural village so decided to visit. The entrance price is moderate. You can hire a buggy to be driven around the complex(once) and you can have a happy snap taken at the same time. The shows are very entertaining but there is a lot of time spent waiting for the next show to... More

If you are interested in Cambodian culture , architecture and dances, this is the best place to go. We really enjoyed the dance shows and the beautiful re built wooden houses. We were very impressed by the variety of dances and performances! Only few tourist joined the program and we had good opportunity to get in contact with Cambodian visitors,... More

By far the biggest waste of money on our three month trip through Asia. At $15 USD per person (Angkor for the day is $20) you expect something impressive. I'm sure the sight might be appealing if you arrive AFTER 2:30. Before 2:30 it is a ghost town of empty buildings with nothing to do and nothing to learn. I... More

Weird!! Giant empty amusement park without the amusements. Cost more ($15) than the lonely planet guide suggested. Only one show on while we were there. Definitely not set up of foreigners. Looks like was set up for huge crowds, but we were nearly the only people there on Saturday morning. Terrible shame as it looks well built and quite pretty.... More

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
