Khmer Dance and Cultural Performance in Siem Reap, Cambodia

by Samuel on April 8, 2013

In our latest travel video we attend a special traditional Khmer dance, music and folk cultural performance (Aspara Dance) at a special theater/buffet dining hall in Siem Reap, Cambodia. The ‘Aspara Dance’ is one of the most popular shows in town showcasing traditional forms of dance in what is best described as a dance-drama. The four main forms of dance include: 1) Classical Dance (lakhon luong); 2) Shadow theater (sbeik thom); 3) Masked Dance (Lakhon Khol); 4) Folk Dance (Ceremonial Fishing Dance). Prior to watching the performance we were treated to a delicious buffet feast consisting mostly of Cambodian / Asian food with a few western options as well. We got a discounted ticket from our guest house for $8 (normally it is $12) and we felt the money spent offered great value. We’d recommend this to anyone staying in Siem Reap looking to experience Cambodian culture, Cambodian dance, Cambodian music and/or Cambodian theater.
