Pailin province is known for its precious stones, and more locally it's known for its peacocks. It is the only place in Cambodia where peacocks live. The Peacock of Pailin Dance is a courting scene between a peacock and a peahen and it is said that this dance brings happiness and prosperity to the villagers.
Here at Koulen Restaurant, we have professionally trained dancers that perform The Peacock of Pailin Dance nightly at our restaurant in Siem Reap.
The Peacock of Pailin Dance, like all traditional Khmer performances, is a very colorful dance. The performers dress in traditional costumes that have been designed to look like both the peacock and peahen.
In Cambodia, the peacock is a symbol of happiness and this dance is usually performed during the Khmer New Year or at special occasions. This dance is often performed by the people of Pailin during Cambodian holidays and you can now see it live in Siem Reap!
This performance is one of our more popular shows and gives the audience a real treat when dining at Koulen Restaurant.
Koulen Restaurant is located on Sivatha Street in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Oppostite Lucky Mall, near to National Road Number 6.
