You would never suspect that this was put on by anything but professionals but they are really considered to be amature !! I read some of the other reviews which did not say much but I always believe in seeing it myself to make an honest view of what I saw. Perhaps it was an unusual night but I don't... More

I didn't like to see the show at all. I expected to watch a nice show to raise money for a good cause, but instead I saw children being exploited for the fun if tourists. There are young children that I feel should be in bed and not work late at night. I was told they do not even get... More

I am really not a fan of this place. I think a lot of less-informed travelers stop here because they think they are going to see an awesome performance and support a local non-profit. To be honest it's the complete opposite. This children are forced to dance every night and are paid very little. There is also no child protection... More

This is a wonderful way to start your night out in Siem Reap. The show, like others have mentioned, is somewhat akin to a children's school production. The stage is spartan but the costumes were nice and some of the kids had some real talent. The admission fee contributes to the maintenance and development of the orphanage. I truly did... More

A very good performance put up by the children, really enjoyed it. Nice costume and music. Did some donations in term of stationaries and clothing to support the children, Glad to see the smile on the children faces during the performance. No harm drop by if you are free on Sunday night and they did not press for any donation.

The children (really mostly teenagers) do some traditional Khymer Dances once a week to put the organization on-the-map. From the reviews on Trip Advisor, I am happy to say they have succeeded. Then someone shouts child exploitation? Give me a break! If you visit them some Sunday evening, you will see happy children and teens acting naturally and a bare-bones... More

Do not go here, it only encourages exploitation of vulnerable children. go to see adults dancing instead, and seek a reliable agency like CONcert if you want to know how you can help vulnerable children.

We arrived to find that we were the only guests however they did not dampen the enthusiasm of the students. The dances and costumes were good. We were able to have photos with the students after the show. Well worth a visit.

Right from you first welcome you can see that this is going to be a great local experience. The show is simple and you sit on plastic chairs with the bugs flying around and being eaten by a local toad but this is truly something you should not miss. There are five dances all performed by children with beautiful costumes.... More
