What a great show. Amazing stunts and so worthwhile. Suitable for all the family. We specifically timed our visit to Battambang to coincide with a performance, so glad we did. There appeared to be no problems getting a ticket upon arrival though our hotel had pressed prepaid tickets upon us. Return tuktuk was $5.

This is an amazing show! It's not your stereotypical Western circus, it's just the performers and their props. The kids are so incredibly talented and skilled and do an amazing job of conveying the story despite the language barrier. This was one of the best shows of any kind I've seen in recent times.

Having studied drama I like to think I know a good performance when I see it and Battambang Circus is a great show! This was not your average circus performance. It wasn't just a collage of acrobatics and tricks, it told a story and that is what captured me as an audience member. The group of performers are highly skilled... More

I believe the show actually changes regularly; when I went the theme was Cabaret (it wasn't actually cabaret) and while slapstick humour is not my kind of thing the actual acts themselves were faultless. The cause is excellent, the performance is surprisingly professional (they said two of their performers have just been accepted to circus school in Montreal), and it... More

The circus itself is simple and the show I have seen was not sofisticated. But I was touched by the concept of this social project and believe that they are doing a great job. Their students are becoming good professionals and they stand up for the cause they promote. Besides the show you can also visit their galery shop and... More

What an absolute delight!!! The performers were completely outstanding, we were not expecting anywhere near the level of complexity that they delivered. The music (again performed by the kids) was well timed and the cast clearly love what they do! We were completely mesmerised and it's position as #1 attraction in Battambang, though a tribute to the hard work they... More

I liked everything. It was a good show, and I felt great also because I gave a sincere applause at the end.

Had a lovely evening here and thought the circus performers were brilliant. Really talented and lots of practice gone into the show, especially since they would have been studying as well. I won't say any more about the show other than go and see it as it is more fun as a surprise. It is $10 which is more than... More
