No visit to Cambodia is complete without watching the Apsara dance performance. The Apsara dance is the Khmer classical dance. Originally it was performed exclusively for the royal court but was later introduced to the public post-French independence as part of celebration of Khmer culture. The Khmer classical dancers do not sing or speak but use graceful curving movements and hand gestures to convey meaning and to narrate classical myths or religious stories.

The Apsara Theatre is a venue where guests can dine and enjoy a buffet spread of Cambodian and Western cuisine while watching the Apsara dance performance. The venue is air-conditioned; the dancers wear costumes adorned with copper ornaments and beaded designs, elaborate headdresses and ankle jewelleries; and the stage has good acoustics

No visit to Cambodia would be complete without seeing the traditional Apsara dance. There are many venues in town to see the shows ( all include dinner ) but I have to say that seeing it at the Apsara Theatre is the best place. The venue itself is a beautiful, traditional wooden building, and the dancing is wonderful. Not the cheapest show in town but not the most expensive either. Worth seeing an important part of the culture.
