Owner description: "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

We came in as a tour group of 32 members. We paid $US 35 per person, just for the show, no buffet. It was an okay show. Nothing is special for the price. It was designed and created by a Chinese movie director so it looked like a musical show that we saw in Chengdu, Sichuan, China few weeks ago. There was a lot of dancers, 3D light, laser light and music. Just think half of the price goes to the charity organization who helped poor Cambodian children.

For anyone who wants to chalk up a çultural show''on their visit to Siem Reap, this is a must.

There are many free (and pay) Apsara shows around town butthis show goes further and deeper than that.

Preceded by a decent buffet meal the show is colourful and spectacular. We booked through asaivipa services who collected us and returned us to our hotel.

The headline price for this show is expension and frankly you don't need to be in zone A - you should be able to get a B ticket for $30 inc transport and buffet. $5 less for not taking the meal is no real cost-saving

Rip off. For $50 per person you get this:
We got there for the 8pm show at 7pm. The show was supposed to include a buffet. FIrst clue this was going to be bad was the "No Spitting" sign in the buffet. Then it turns out the whole buffet was completely cleaned out- meaning no food was left for a show one hour away. We picked at scraps and saw the show hungry.

The show itself.. Meh. Weird combination of projections and Cirque du Soleil wanna be that seemed like it was choreographed in Orlando Florida.

Save your money and see the Cambodian Circus Phare or a traditional dance/music show. FAR BETTER experiences than this RIP OFF.

The show started off pretty well with all the animations etc. The story telling was good initially, but I don't know what happened mid way, there were only dance acts all the way without any explanations. The whole thing went off the track!!

If they can work upon streamlining the content and keep the audience interested the whole time, it can be a very nice show!!

The ambiance at the buffet dinner was good though we didn't found much of vegetarian food to eat. Still the prices are a bit on higher side!!
