I expect my taxi driver/tour guide was given a generous commission for showing this to us. Some of the content in the middle was a legitimate exploration of some of the mythology depicted in Angkor Wat and other temples in the area, some of the...More

How can I say, at first, I didn't intend to go to that show but since I heard that this is created by Zhang Yimou who conducted the opening in Olympic 2008, so I spent $30 to go there. Normally, it only has 1 show...More

Booked the show( without dinner). Booked through email and on arrival to the place the ticket was ready and paid accordingly. It was A5 seat 15. Excellent location to watch the show. Informative and great performance. Artists really worked hard and performed nicely. Highly recommended.

Wonderful property for a short stay. Their spa is awesome. We tried their breakfast which had lots of choices. We will definitely come back.

We've been to several shows all around Asia, and this one was the most disappointing. The theater is not impressive, there is really only one act that 'wows' you, and the storyline is weak. Check out the reviews for other shows, it looks like there...More

1 hr show for a $42 dollar ticket. This show was mediocre and definitely not worth it. It’s a tourist trap and I am disappointed that our guide endorsed it as the best one.

The show was so so and could provide a bit of amusement. But the really terrible thing was the loud and noisy audience, which were 99% chinese mainlanders. Although the young chinese couple sitting next to us tried to make the others behave and keep...More

Very good hotel. Extremely worth it for the money and we also got a free air port pick up. Would totally recommend it for the business travellers.

This was one of the most emotionally spectacular shows for me. It actually gave me a greater understanding of the whole religious concept of the ancient Cambodian people. I think it is a must see in the area. We had dinner in the buffet prior...More

A large restaurant (500pax), I went low season so less than half full which was great. Full buffet, some I like, so I did not - all personal taste. Excellent performance, comfortable space. Very good vale for money

The ticket price is high and the show is similar to others, such as those in China, with computer graphics. There is water fountain at the front and the use of light settings are good. One thing will suggest is to allow attendees to take...More
