  • If you’re in Siem Reap you’ll no doubt hear how fantastic Phare is. The Cambodian Circus is mind-blowing. The stunts are fantastic. The music is phenomenal. The story-telling is beautiful. I heard of it through the Sales Director who spoke at a Sugar Talks. He spoke of the amazing ambition the performers have and how Phare helps to educate their staff and pursue their dreams. This made my visit even more special as I knew how much good Phare was doing for the local community. There are a few ticket options. I opted for the cheapest one and honestly it was perfectly fine. It’s a small area so even if you’re at the back you can see everything perfectly. I’d highly recommend a visit.
  • It's an amazing theatre cum circus performed by young people coming from poor sosio-economic backgrounds. Saw two the different shows here. Same Same But Different was a delightful parody of how locals and foreigners view things differently. It was both funny with incredible acrobatics . White Gold was a musical theatre with stunning visual effects and acrobatics, about a young villager who leaves the rice fields to seek his fortune in the city. One hour passed so quickly, never a dull moment. Cannot recommend it enough. Must see if you are here. If nothing else, you are doing your part in uplifting the future of Cambodian kids.
