Fodor's Expert Review Phare
Cambodia's answer to the Cirque du Soleil is a must-see show. Previously only a traveling show, it has now found a permanent home in Siem Reap, in a cool, pink, high-top tent behind Angkor National Museum, although one of its troupes continues to take the show on the road internationally. 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. Most seating is first come, first served, so try and get there early.
