  • What a nice place. Be sure to take the free bus going from Siem Reap the tour is free and very interesting. The place is a very nice and everything goes for a good course  more »
  • A bit far from the city, but nice to see the silk production here. From the entrance we will lead by the guide who will inform us about everything during the tour. In the end we can buy some souvenir,...  more »
  • Free shuttles in downtown artisans go directly to reservation to ankor, and shuttle tuk tuk ride into the $15 or so round trip if possible. Sounds like a great time puts the priority to low.

  • 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 Turk-yuk and take the tour...don't miss this!
  • 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.
  • 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 !
  • This a wonderful, educational experience for anyone - regardless of your interests. Nice intro, too, to Cambodian enterprise in fashion, textiles, and decorative arts. Also nice is the non-profit organization that runs this operation. Feel good fun at many levels.
  • This was a nice break from the Temple tours. The family loved it. It was very interesting and the guide was friendly and knowledgeable. Definitely recommend it to everyone.
