music and arts

Earlier this year, Khiri Travel Cambodia introduced an eight-day journey around Cambodia with a focus on music and art. Besides the kingdom’s must-see places such as the Royal Palace, Tuol Sleng, Choeng Ek, Angkorian temples and the Sambor Prei Kuk community, we also show visitors the country’s evolving art culture.

An architecture walk in Phnom Penh and a visit to the Apsara Arts Association show traditional aspects of Khmer culture as well as recent and modern architectural and artistic influences. We visit the META House and Raffles Hotel’s Rooftop Gallery for the capital’s latest exhibitions.

Siem Reap is rich in interesting art galleries. We get on a bicycle – or our stylish Khiri tuk-tuk – to explore the top of the class. Starting with the famous McDermott Galleries at the FCC complex. Near Pub Street, we continue to the ArtDeli. Housed in a 1920’s French colonial building at the chic-meets-bohemia enclave in Cambodia’s Alley West, the ArtDeli is home to a gallery, library, café-bar, and an alternative performance site. We criss-cross a few narrow alleys to reach the hidden oasis of Lim Muy Theam’s home, atelier and gallery. Theam is a restlessly creative individual who creates lacquers, paintings, and sculptures – uniquely expressive of Theam, and with a strong Khmer aesthetic. The routing also takes us to the riverside 1961 Art Hotel and the Angkor Photo Gallery Café with varying exhibitions.
