Fabulous Cocktail party at the Theams House Art Gallery in Siem Reap

Fabulous Cocktail party at the Theams House Art Gallery in Siem Reap

The historical and cultural center of Cambodia, Siem Reap hosts a wide range of MICE activities.This beautiful gallery is located in a traditional teak house, offering an authentic glimpse into the cultural heritage and beauty of Khmer art.

Born in Takeo, Cambodia, Lim Muy Theam was only a child when he arrived in France in 1978 among thousands of refugees fleeing Cambodia. After graduating from the prestigious Ecole Boulle and the Beaux-Arts in Paris, he returned 15 years later to help rebuild his homeland, which had been ravaged by years of war. Since then, the artist and designer Theam has continued to work for the revival of Cambodian crafts. First founding the Artisans of Angkor, he then devoted himself to a more personal project, which led him to transform his house to preserve Khmer art and crafts, provide knowledge to young apprentices, and continue his creative work. Its structures are as varied as wood and stone, ceramics, silk or bronze. The gallery of paintings also highlights the talent and technique of this great Cambodian artist.

Located in a quiet area and only a 10-minute drive from downtown Siem Reap, his residence and studio are an elegant house-museum with a peaceful tropical garden, displaying paintings and sculptures of the famous artist Theam. Both a place to live and a place to work, this beautiful home of traditional architecture houses a unique collection of arts and crafts that perfectly reflects the cultural identity of Cambodia.

In particular, Phoenix Voyages proposes to clients the possibility to enjoy a cocktail at the art gallery of the artist Theam.

 Upon arrival, clients will encounter the serene atmosphere of this venue, where everything blends in harmony. The sculptures are already present in the garden decorated with lush plants, while the interiors boast splendid traditional Khmer motifs and mandalas on the walls and ceilings.

We propose a refined cocktail with drinks, canapés, and appetizers from both Western and traditional cuisine in this enchanting setting. The service will take place in the courtyard beautifully decorated with lotus flowers and candles, around the magnificent sacred banyan tree. The outdoor space is also perfect for setting up tables.

 
Guests will also enjoy a traditional Khmer band, which will escort them through the gallery, for an ideal fusion of Khmer art and music.

For an insight into the heritage and traditions of the country, a cocktail party at Theam's House Gallery is a unique cultural experience in Siem Reap, offering an authentic encounter of Khmer art in a tranquil ambiance.

Imagine yourself standing before this great structure called Bayon Temple, while old stones are murmuring stories of once powerful Khmer Empire As soon as you step inside this holy place there will be no denying it–you would feel something different; some sort of connection with past which is outside time itself The carvings on these walls show battles fought here among other things such as ceremonies performed or even just people living their lives during those days.

But your adventure doesn't stop at the temple walls. Phoenix Voyages Group has designed tours that take travellers through entire regions rather than leaving them within one site all day long. Your travels will also extend into charming countryside towns where Khmer traditions still thrive despite being popular spots among tourists they offer unique insight into everyday village life.
