We attended on Sunday night. The concert is free and the children do perform but they are not young children, they are teenagers. It is down a dusty dark road but the greeting you receive from the students is wonderful. You are greeted with tea and a small snack ( at no cost). They are not orphans, they all have... More

I really enjoyed the dancing at CCHP. It was recommended by a friend who visited earlier in the year, and we weren't disappointed. It's a short tuk tuk ride out of town, we paid $3. Not all the tuk Tuks drivers knew where it was so make sure you check with them first and have the address. Each dance is... More

GO TO THE SHOW! It's every Sunday night at 7pm (more details/logistics can be found on their website - santepheap.org). The show is traditional Khmer dancing performed by children ages 8 - 20ish. These children come from disadvantaged backgrounds and they utilize and love dancing because they can share their culture with visitors. There are probably around 5 dances they... More

This show of traditional Khmer dancing is put on by a small school for disadvantaged (not necessarily orphaned) children and is only run on Sunday evenings.This show is not that well known and we only found out about it because the children were handing out pamphlets in the main street. Because its not a regular tourist haunt most of the... More

I chose this one because it is a small orphanage and they only do one show a week on Sunday night. We where greeted with green tea and some crackers. The show was amazing. The children introduced themselves and gave a little history about their life and them told about the next dance to be performed. It was all Kymar... More

We made it a point to visit on our first night in Siem Reap. It was a really bumpy tuk-tuk ride in the dark and the rain and we were very disappointed to be met by a building in darkness. There should have been a posting on their website or even at the gate to advice visitors and potential donors... More

It was really a wonderful and entertaining performance by the children. Highly recommended for those who wish to watch Aspara Dancing during their trip to Siem Reap.

Very enjoyable way to spend a Sunday night. The children have a great energy and exuberance when they dance...you can tell they really love to share their skills with the audience. Speaking afterwards, everyone was so friendly and keen to practise their English! I was impressed to learn that they only dance once a week, and spend most of their... More

I had never visited a children's dance before, because I have always been a bit hesitant when it comes to visiting children's homes. However, from what I have seen the Cambodian Children's House of Peace seem to be a genuine organisation with the child's best interest at heart. I had the opportunity to speak to several children - very well... More

My colleagues and I enjoyed the dances tremendously! The young men and women who performed them so clearly worked very hard to practice the intricate moves and take great pride in sharing their ancient and beautiful culture with their guests. The event is free, which leaves some room in your entertainment budget to make a donation to the Cambodian Children's... More
