The 'Smile of Angkor' Grand Epic Show in Siem Reap is a show about the history and culture of Cambodia. Dancers from the Cambodian Royal Ballet as well as from China immerse you to the time when the Temples of Angkor were built.
(Building Angkor Wat)
It was said that there are 54 towers with 216 faces of Avolokitesvara in the Bayon Temple in Angkor Thom, but only one of them is smiling. The storyline of the 'Smile of Angkor' show is build around the question why only one of those faces smiles.
(the dancers are bringing gods and demons alive)
Smile of Angkor is a high technology laser show with modern lighting and sound system. It combines ancient Cambodian songs and dances with ancient Khmer martial art performances, acrobatics, legends, local Khmer life, the temples of Angkor, Khmer festivals and the Hindu myth Churning the Sea of Milk.
