Fodor's Expert Review Phare, The Cambodian Circus

Siem Reap Circuses Fodor's Choice

Cambodia's answer to the Cirque du Soleil is truly a must-see. It started as a traveling troupe, but there are now nightly performances in a high-top tent southwest of the city center, though they continue to take the show on the road internationally and also to Phnom Penh. The high-energy performances combine Cambodian storytelling traditions with circus arts, dance, acrobatics, and acting to captivate audiences every night. The Phare School is a charitable organization that has a positive impact on poor communities. If you want to learn more about the background, visit the Phare Ponleu Selpak center in Battambang.

Most seating is first-come-first-served, so try to get there early.
