    We went here with our teen sons as we felt learning about modern history was at least as critical as ancient history. The museum is kind of out of the way, and we arrived in tuk tuk which took a minute. Perhaps take a car. The museum was pretty well done for a shoe string budget. There was a lot about the landmines themselves, which I found less interesting than the information about the history, the demining process, and the work still to be done. However, we were glad we went, and were inspired by one person's dedication to making a difference.

    Well worth the guided tour for $10 which takes about an hour.
    The visit has given me much to think about and my respect for the Cambodians is even greater.

    Complete your tour of the region’s past by checking out this museum and seeing all the statues that are no longer displayed at their original sites.

    There’s lots of history and explanation. The Gallery of a Thousand Buddhas is particularly good.

    The museum is well laid out with air-con in the exhibition galleries. Good clean toilets and a good gift shop.

    Old market Siem Reap is one of the busy area and one can buy different items during day time. Fruits, T shirts, second hand items,etc are available. We have to bargain for the price.

    Such a huge variety of art works here to view. Charged a small entrance fee. If you love art you could easily spend a couple of hours here walking around. Little bridges, water, gardens just make this place quite special.

    Such an amazing experience. Get your camera out and get ready to be transported into 3D worlds where you become part of the scene. Suddenly your in a Roman chariot, then a Gondola in Venice , next your walking across deep ravines on a narrow rickety foot bridge or surfing the barrel of wave. To top it all off , there is also an immersive sound and light show. We had so much fun over the 90 minutes it took us . Pure fun and fantasy. We’re so glad we found The Art Box.

    Mind boggling lay large with a wide variety of produce at, I guess, reasonable prices. But from the moment you enter and until you leave you are accosted by desperate sounding retailers. I understand their situation but it doesn’t encourage one to hang about

    The Phare Circus is AMAZING ! We were blown away by the qualitfy of the show and the perfomances of the artists. Time flew by and it was already the end. It was poetic, funny, impressive. The live music give another dimension to the show. Also the Phare Circus is a social project that need support so please go to see them and support their art, it's so important! Also the boutique is high quality, we found some amazing things. Also we went a little bit early and had some amazing food there, at 7pm, a kids show was displayed and it was so cute.
    10 out of 10!

    The food here was delicious and they had a great drinks menu as well. The work New Hope does looks like it really helps the community and assists students with their education and many more things. I hope they can continue their good work.

    This is a must visit destination if you travel to Siem Reap. Suggest you get a tuk tuk from town (not too far away but you don't want to walk in the high heat and humidity) and have them wait for you while you explore as it's not a large place.

    The venue has a workshop and a gallery. A lady named Sina spoke perfect English and walked me through the workshop and the process they undergo, including the lacquerware and how they make some of the art pieces, including the one I eventually ordered.

    I fell in love with a particular piece with silver leaf lotus flowers but it was mounted on wood (ie high freight costs and custom issues) and didn't have fish. Sina indicated that they could custom make something for me, put it on canvas, and add koi that I wanted (rather than the catfish they usually have). I prepaid including freight cost, which was very reasonable given it was made to order. Sina also sent me a picture of different koi via Whatsapp for me to choose which ones I wanted.

    The canvas arrived professional packaged so it wouldn't be damaged in transit. I had it stretched and mounted on a floating frame (attached) at 176x93cm.

    I highly recommend this place and to take home (or order) a high quality piece of art work at a reasonable price and support the local community.

    Having lived in several South East Asian countries including some 3 years in "Khmerland", I was fortunate to visit both DIWO Galleries and meet the owner Ms. Sokha Chung. I found the courtesy extended to me by this lady to be exemplary to say the least. Her knowledge of the Khmer history and culture was superb. Most professional and ethical in her representations and dealings.. Of course, some of the items/merchandise - to some - maybe "pricey"... but good unique things are well worth buying. And if I were allowed I would have also "taken" the centrepiece ~ Ms. Sokha Chung ~ if she was available...unfortunately not so!

    The workshop/gallery is set in a lovely building with luscious greenery surrounding it.

    The artwork is truly beautiful, and the prices fantastic. They wrap your pieces up very carefully so they can be protected in your suitcase.

    The staff are friendly and obviously very passionate about their work.

    Highly recommend visiting here for a truly Cambodian piece of art.

    We had a lovely evening here, we booked in advance to have the 10 balcony seats, downstairs you have to sit on floor with feet down in a space so no good for oldies.
    Upstairs were approx another 16 seats besides ours. they put this show on 3 x weekly.
    It was easy to book on line. It includes dinner and was excellent value for money and the Khymer food selection was delicious.
    The theatre is beautiful, the oldest in Siem Reap, the performance was excellent and we really enjoyed having a cultural evening.
    The price worked out at about £27 each, well worth it.
    You had to purchase drinks, all waiter service at tables.
    Highly recommend.
