  • 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.
  • The Angkor Silk Farm is a great learning experience about how silk is produced and cultivated in the area. It supports many local women in the local area and provides an important means for sustainable industry in Cambodia. Highly recommended to visit and have a guided tour.
  • Nice short get away from the town which you can do with a 8-10 dollar tuk tuk. A free tour guide will demonstrate various steps in producing silk products. While returning you can also visit the war museum. Overall, a pleasant experience. Something new to learn as well.
  • The Angkor silk farm is a very nice place for a shopping visit.You get authentic Cambodian silk products here. Everything from scarfs to hand kerchiefs and from suits to wallets are sold here.Made by Weaver's in a factory located in same compound.You can see the manufacturing up close.chemical dyes are used for color but that's ok as nowadays its not easy to make natural dyes anymore due to availability issues with natural she's.Products are a bit pricey..But its ok to buy as quality is good. You Will be approached by a free guide who will show you around the farm and factory.Can tip him a couple of dollars but it's each person's call..o really its a nice experience and could take an hour or less to complete as each person's tastes differ..
