    I would highly recommend this show as it is a total delight. Tîcket prices may sound high but the money goes to Cambodian Living Arts, which is a very worthwhile organisation that is bringing back much of the country's culture that was lost during the Khmer Rouge.

    The show is held outdoors and runs for around an hour.
