At $10 I was very hesitant, but it was well worth it! Very talented gymnasts and the music was great, just book a return tuk tuk because none will be available! Best thing in Battambang

You will see dozens of posters around town for this very reasonably priced and quite excellent show. The posters all read restuarant and we will drop you home. The restuarant is closed up and doesn't appear to have been open for many months. Plus when we arrived we asked about the transport home and got a blank look.
Defintely do not miss this show it is worth the effort of going but here are three simple tips.
1. The poster says 6 PM, the show does not start until 7 and there is only 1 small art gallery to look at so don't get three before 6:30.
2. The show finishes at 8:00 so head back to town for dinner.
3. Arrange a return Tuk Tuk to pick you up after the show.

We have seen this group in Battambang and we decided to contract with them to have a show in our place for the new year celebration. They play with fully experience and professional. Please try by yourself to experience it.

A great night at this little circus, good atmosphere, nice audience and very impressive acrobatics and jugglers. We really enjoyed it.

This is an amateur circus with local kids. The shows are funds raisers for this art school.
In relative terms of what else there is to do in Battambang then you should go. Sure is better than the bamboo train.
Just do not expect a professional show.
