It has been a tradition since the earliest days of tourism in the 19th century to treat visitors to Siem Reap with an ‘Apsara dance performance’ - a taste of classical Khmer culture. No visit to Cambodia is complete without attending at least one performance. The Apsara Dance comes from the legend that Cambodia originated from the union of the hermit Kampu and the Apsara Mera. The Apsara dance shows one of the myths in Cambodia about the coming together of Mera, a dancer and Kambu, a wise man. The hand gestures are a significant part of the story, with each hand gesture signifying something different. These gestures are often performed in a specific order and help to the tell the story of the dance.
