Apsara Dance Performance - Dinner

A journey to Cambodia is not complete if you don’t experience a performance of the Apsara dance, considered a part of the Khmer identity. This traditional dance is a form of Cambodian classic dance, in the heart of the Cambodian culture.

This dance knows a new fast-growing resurgence after its ban and bloody suppression by the Khmer Rouge regime of Pol Pot (90% of the dancers and musicians were killed). An Apsara is a woman spirit in the Buddhist and Hindu mythology. Apsara dancers are young, elegant and wear traditional costume. Their movements focus principally on the hands and feet. They tell a history and each gesture of the hands symbolize the main steps of the cycle of nature.

After this capitivating show set in a unique wooden theatre guests will enjoy a traditional a traditional dinner.

Tipping

Depending on the service, it is customary in Asia to tip service providers, such as waiters, approximately 10%. Though not compulsory, tipping is expected and shows an expression of satisfaction with the people who have assisted you on your holiday. Although it may not be customary to you, it is of considerable significance to the people who will take care of you during your travels. There are several times during the trip where there is an opportunity to tip the local guides or drivers we use. Recommendations for tipping drivers and local guides range from $1.5-$3.5 USD per person, per day, depending on the quality and length of the service. If unsure, ask your local Green Cultural Travel representative.

When selecting your Tour or Activity please read the brochure and itinerary carefully to assess your ability to cope with the requirements of your selected product.

Safety and Security

We strongly recommend the use of a neck wallet or money belt for keeping your valuables safe. Leave your expensive jewellery at home. You won’t need it while travelling. Many of the hotels you stay at have safety deposit boxes, which is the most secure way of storing your valuables while on tour. 

Protests and Demonstrations- Protests and demonstrations, even those that are well intended, have the potential to turn violent with no warning. Counter protests can also turn violent. Action by security forces to disperse demonstrators and protesters may occur at any time. If you are in an area where demonstrators or protesters are gathering, avoid the temptation of staying for a photo opportunity and leave the area immediately.

Medical Form

As a minimum, an average level of fitness and mobility is required to undertake our easiest programs. Travellers must be able to walk without the aid of another person, climb 3-4 flights of stairs, step on and off small boats, and carry their personal luggage.
