Owner description: Traditional Storytelling Theater Cambodia: Join us for a truly unique experience in Siem Reap, our 45-minute Angkor show is held daily at 6.30pm at our downtown Siem Reap theater. The tales retell the mythical origins of Angkor Wat and the Khmer Empire, as well as the adventures of some ancient national icons. The stories are told in English by our local charismatic storyteller, accompanied by traditional Khmer music performed live by our multi-talented musician on three different ancient instruments. Tickets cost $7 and can be bought at the theater from 6pm. Enjoy a locally brewed craft beer purchased on the door (or bring your own drinks) and sit back and be regaled by the happy, sad, funny, and spiritual stories and music of the ancient Khmer empire. The most authentic daily show in Siem Reap. Not to be missed.

I really enjoyed the performance, with the wonderful storytelling, music and lighting I was enraptured throughout! An excellent show. The seats were comfortable and you can buy very good beer from the ticket desk.

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 !

My wife, son (16) and I all enjoyed this show immensely. After three days of visiting temples, it was great to learn some of the culture of ancient Cambodia through a different medium and in a different context. The Actors/Presenters were excellent, passionate, dramatic, talented.

As for the cost, which another reviewer complained about, I paid for the three of us AND brought our excellent Temple Guide (Tuk Tuk Sarak) and would happily pay full price for all of us to go again. The show is a bargain. Just go, seriously!!

We saw a flyer for this show on a restaurant table, and we wanted to hear some of the Cambodian folktales. The show was in a small, intimate theater, and we got to sit right in front of the performers. One person played background music, while the other told the stories. They both had a lot of energy, and seemed genuinely excited to share these stories with us. It was really enjoyable, and highly recommended!

We received a little flyer for this show and decided at the last minute to go. So glad we did!
The show was lighthearted and funny but gave valuable context for the many beautiful sights we've seen on this trip.
Great way to spend an evening (in the air conditioning!) with two talented and kind storytellers.
