1. Discover Angkor temples
2. Enjoy Apsara dance show
Apsaras, according to the India tales, are beautiful goddesses. They are famous for their mesmerizing dance skills. With the elegant feature and sophisticated move, Apsara has gone from the tale into the spiritual and cultural life of people in those countries heavily affected by Hinduism like Thailand and Cambodia. By the 13th century, the dance was assuming a Khmer identity rather than Indian – the source of its roots. It combined gentle movements with loud, traditional Khmer music during its performance. In that era, Apsara dance was performed solely for the benefit of the upper class, and particularly for the king.
