An excellent show that supports traditional arts in Cambodia - they're also doing workshops that look great (but I haven't done any of them just yet) - put it on your 'must see' list!

Really nice show! I really would advise you to see it if you are in the city. Regarding the different prices, we had the most expensive one with the 2 pillows, you rather take it because it’s very uncomfortable without during an hour.
