Robam Tep Apsara is a traditional Cambodian dance that was created by the Royal Ballet of Cambodia during the middle of the twentieth century, around the 1960s. The Apsara who is played by a woman, wears traditional Khmer dress.

The Apsara’s graceful, curving gestures narrate classical myths and old religious stories. This mystifying performance is a popular go-to for foreign tourists who are visiting Cambodia. Most shows are accompanied by a meal where you can have some traditional Khmer food. The duration of the evening is generally around two hours and feature many traditional stories from Cambodia. While in Siem Reap you can go to the free evening viewing of the show at The Temple on Pub Street.
