"Smile of Angkor" is the first grand Epic daily show that revives...

"Smile of Angkor" is the first grand Epic daily show that revives the Angkor dynasty in all aspects. It's the most worth view show in Cambodia. From foundation to prosperity, tale to folk customs, past to present, Smile of Angkor expresses the original culture with the highest technology

It's a splendid performance directed by the experts of the Cambodia Culture and Fine Arts Ministry and the director team of the Closing Ceremony of 2008 Olympic Games.

It's a legendary show that revives all the myths from the reliefs of Angkor Temples with our grand stage and the brightest stars.

There is a buffet at the venue to allow you to dinner before the show. A small and cosy restaurant is dedicated to the individual visitors (non-group) but be aware that it s a huge buffet for Asian group so don't expect for food and Western standard level. But you will be able to see all the nationalities of Asia and to taste differents foods : Khmers, Vietnamese, Korean... Be aware that during the high season there should have so queue for the bbq which know a big success.

During the show you can not take photos or videos.

We wish to welcome you

This is a tourist trip . Expensive, food is terrible and while the show has its moments it is aimed at mass tourism and so we were constantly being interrupted by by peopel coming and going. Dont go!

Had high hopes for this show. Wanted to really see something cultural. Firstly...EXPENSIVE for what you get. Second...I've only ever had one other place that the food was this bad, I mean it's absolutely TERRIBLE. I eat in cheap Asian places, this surpasses them all. Third...show is ok but unless your in the front lower rows you miss the girls... More

Our show tickets included a buffet supper that was o.k. The show is one hour in length and truly was amazing. The stage effects were amazing and the costumes outstanding. There were many different types of acts all of which depicted some of the story of Angkor. Well worth seeing.

I didn't check TripAdvisor before booking this show, BIG MISTAKE! FOOD WAS BAD, SHOW WAS BAD, PEOPLE TEXTED DURING THE ENTIRE SHOW. WASTE OF MONEY, TIME. Best part of the show was the til tuk ride back to the hotel.

The show is professional, the dancing good, interesting stories played out covering the history of Cambodia/Siem Reap. It's a bit loud, and there are sub-titles in 4 languages, though most of the narration is in English.There is a buffet first and this is typical Asian fare - the food is no better or worse than the average Asian restaurant in...

I'm writing this from the buffet before the show, so my comments are related to food - extremely tasteless, like rubber, no single thing that you'd want to try. If you are vegetarian, leave the perimeter like your life depends on it. The floor accommodates about 12 thousand people, and you feel you are part of the conveyer belt and... More

Variety of dance and acrobatic performances pieced together, including a small segment of cultural dance. Arrive early for better food quality. Many large tour group visitors.
