  • Quite a nice free attraction and interesting tour. Be prepared for the humidity being even worse than outside. The free shuttle was good but we were lucky to get on it (last 2 seats).  more »

  • Wonderful visit totally free with explaining the process of getting silk from the worm to the cloth. I was totally amazed at the skill needed for every step of the process. If you have not been to see this operation it is well worth the trip and time. The girls operating the loom are amazing the concentration need to remember he steps is quite amazing! Gives a new aspect to hand made and created.
  • A place where you can get to know the process of creating silk from the very beginning. Everything well explained, numerous exhibits that can be admired. Service friendly and well spoken English, helpful in every matter. Shop with a huge amount of articles made in a traditional way, a large selection of handicrafts and silk products. The price range is wide. You can visit with small children, and with larger groups. On site a small bar with cool drinks and ice cream. In the area a lot of greenery. Everyone in this place will find something for themselves.
  • The tour of the silk farm was a big surprise! An informed guide walks you through each step of the silk making process from mulberry fields to the weaving of scarves. These artisans use old school technology and skills to create beautifully crafted scarves. I found the entire process utterly fascinating. Tip your free guide then wander through the store and drool over the sumptuous wares. Hire a Tuk-tuk and take the tour...don't miss this!
  • We loved the trip to Angkor silk farm. A free shuttle takes you from city centre to the farm where an English speaking guide takes your through the entire process, from the silk worm to the final product. It was a lot of fun !
  • Very very nice. Would highly recommend when you have time. Much better than other touristy places.
