This is great entertainment for a night in Siem Reap. This school is a great opportunity for Children and Families in Cambodia. All of the support goes to a great cause. The Circus was a lot of fun with humour and talent.

If you have the chance to see these young performers in action, GO. They are all young, underprivileged people from poor backgrounds who attend the circus school. They receive general education and training in the various arts - music, dance, acrobatics etc. Their performance is...More

This review is about one specific experience. I was disappointed because the circus was largely dance and acrobatics. There was one mediocre magic act. The audience was filled with children, and the performances were not FUN! No clowns and very little color except for the...More
