  • 1. Phare, The Cambodian Circus

    Cambodia's answer to the Cirque du Soleil is truly a must-see. It started as a traveling troupe, but there are now nightly performances in a high-top tent southwest of the city center, though they continue to take the show on the road internationally and also to Phnom Penh. The high-energy performances combine Cambodian storytelling traditions with circus arts, dance, acrobatics, and acting to captivate audiences every night. The Phare School is a charitable organization that has a positive impact on poor communities. If you want to learn more about the background, visit the Phare Ponleu Selpak center in Battambang. Most seating is first-come-first-served, so try to get there early.

    Upper West River Side

    Get inspired! A really interesting initiative, The 1961 is a gallery-art-events-cowork space. People gather for the quality exhibitions, to enjoy cool drinks in the outdoor pavilion, or just to find a quiet little spot to catch up on some work and have a coffee. The regular exhibitions feature local and international artists and aim to bring them closer to their audiences, showcasing classic to avant-garde, and visual to musical forms of art.
