The show takes place in a small theater. The stories and legends are very interesting. It's also nice to hear the traditional instruments. I highly recommend this show !

We had a very good time listening to these funny and extraordinary stories, backed up by pleasant music. There is one downside though, which is the price. As there are usually not a lot of listenes, the prices are pretty high for what it is.

Thank you for your review. We are very happy that you enjoyed the show. We continue to believe that $7 including all taxes for the show is good value for Siem Reap, especially when comparing against the price of the other evening shows here.

I really liked this storytelling 45-minute show. It's of folklore, not the actual history of Siem Reap, but it's entertaining. The Storyteller is very animated. I just think that for Cambodian prices and for the length of time of the show, it's overpriced.

Thank you for your comments, we are happy that you enjoyed the show. Our fee, which includes all taxes as a fully registered local business, is much cheaper than most comparable shows in Siem Reap.
