A Date With Khmer Apsaras...



The Apsara Dance Show was our final activity in Siem Reap before we headed to the airport to fly back home... 


The dance show is hosted in the Koulen Restaurant in central Siem Reap...


And we were in a bit early, way before the crowds moved in - we had a hearty Khmer dinner before the shows began...



Local musicians...



And the Apsara performances begin...






The head from Bayon Temple...


And an Apsara emerges...





Traditional moves with lots of grace...


These moves are quite similar to some dance forms we have in India...


Obviously this region fell within the Indian shere of cultural influence and therefore the similarities have to be there...





The peasants' dance...




See him wooing the girl...


Charming her endlessly...


There it is - a flower for her...





I like that move...



And here comes the devil...




Another pretty Khmer damsel...
