Angkor Dynasty will open doors this month

A mixed-use precinct comprised of a performing arts theatre, shopping mall and water park in Siem Reap is set to open its doors later this month.

Located five kilometres from Angkor Wat, Angkor Dynasty is a joint development being spearheaded by Cambodia Mega Asset management co., Ltd and Ca Heng International Cultural Tourism Investment Co.

Sarah Liang, director of sales at the Angkor Dynasty project said: “There development will hold theatre shows, a water park, commercial areas, restaurants and Cambodian folk culture on 1.5 hectares of land.”

Liang, who revealed the total cost of the development was $30 million, said the Angkor Dynasty grand theatre will span 6,000 square metres and have the capacity to hold 1,200 people.

“In this theatre, you will be surrounded by Cambodian culture,” she said, adding that shows would be held regularly in the complex to cater for the influx of tourists coming to Siem Reap.

“The developers feel this is a valuable way to contribute to the Cambodian culture and history,” Liang added.

The project, which started construction last July, is set to open its doors to the public towards the end of August.

Angkor Dynasty is positioned in proximity to many hotels, while the popular Pub Street is only 1 kilometre away.
