A night at the Cambodian Circus in Siem Reap might seem like an odd way to spend your first night in a city that’s famous for Angkor Wat and other Khmer archaeological sites but I did.
There are no ring masters, no clowns but there is a big top along with acrobatics, juggling, balancing acts and even fire dancing. Siem Reaps Phare is in close comparison to Cirque du Soleil but warm, down to earth and very funny.
It’s a combination of personality, skills, and great storytelling that made the night so memorable.
There is a long and memorable story that you can read about but honestly just know that this was a night I won’t forget anytime soon.
