things to do at Phare Ponleu Selpak Circus, Cambodia

Phare Ponleu Selpak Circus

This is an acrobatic circus with performances by disadvantaged Cambodian youth. The quality of the show is impressive and of international standard. We spend the entire evening at the Phare Ponleu Selpak circus beginning with a one-hour workshop on juggling or other circus arts. Then travelers sit back and enjoy the show of young Cambodian acrobats and circus performers. After the show discuss your favorite act over a delicious 3-course meal served in the circus grounds.

things to do at Phnom Penh - Apsara Art - Cambodia

Apsara Art Association (AAA)

This is a great tour for visitors to fully immerse themselves in Cambodian culture, art and way of life. Those who join this tour will soon realize that the secret of the Cambodian people’s triumph over adversity is rooted in their traditions. Cambodian art and traditional dance has been in practice for centuries as evident on the walls of the Angkor temples, yet it is still relevant to overcoming modern day trauma. The Apsara Art Association is an organization that inspires hope in disadvantaged children through dance, art and performance. Travelers can spend a morning watching and learning traditional dances inspired by the beauty and grandeur of their ancient civilization.

what to do at Kompong Khleang, Cambodia

On the flood plains of Tonle Sap Lake

Kompong Khleang is located on the northern lake-edge about 45 km of Siem Reap town. It is a remote area dotted with wooden houses on 10-meter tall stilts. This is where the relatives of our colleague in Siem Reap live. The family has opened their house for day-trip visitors from Siem Reap to introduce them to the Khmer kitchen in a cooking workshop at their home. Travelers also have the option to stay overnight with one of the families in this village on the Tonle Sap Lake. Watching the sun go down from the balcony of the homestay is a rewarding experience. At the crack of dawn, we join the fishermen on their morning ritual. After a visit to Kampong Khleang, travelers can either return to Siem Reap or travel onwards to Phnom Penh.
