Phare, The Cambodian Circus

Phare Circus Siem Reap

After visiting the temples soaking in the energy from the circus is a great way to end the day. A circus for a cause founded in 1994 to support its performers who came from poverty stricken backgrounds. The festive mood reminds me of my childhood memories in a “Perya,” a Filipino style Carnival. The hotel where I checked-in sold the circus ticket for 18USD. You can buy tickets at the circus venue too for the same price. The show starts at 8:00 pm and it’s free seating so make sure to be there a bit earlier to secure better seats. Preferred seating is also available for 35USD (Adult).

They have a few different shows however the screenplay I saw was about discrimination with a little bit of humor lighten a very sensitive social issue. The group performs in a very solid stance, and you could see that they love what they’re doing. The group is world renowned and has traveled to end the world visiting the U.S., Europe and elsewhere.
