Where to stay in Siem Reap

Siem Reap offers attractive accommodations on every budget. Inexpensive family-run guesthouses provide clean, private rooms with access to the host's wealth of information. Hostels catering to backpackers cluster around the old market squares. Four- and five-star resorts welcome guests to retreat from the city into sleek modern interiors or rustic village havens, while mid-range hotels with sparkling pools fill in the spectrum. All can be booked online in advance, but with the abundant options at hand you shouldn't have much trouble finding a room upon arrival.

  • This is such and interesting place to visit. Hard to believe that a tiny little silkworm can produce such magnificent fibers to make the exquisite silk fabric with the aide of expert weavers. You get ...  more »
  • This is a very cool visit. It is about a 20-30 tuk tuk ride from the middle of SR. When you get there you will be greeted by a guide that speaks English very well. The tour is free and lasts about 45 ...  more »
  • Was nice to be able to see the process in which silk is collected, dyed, placed manually on wheels, and then used to make beautiful pieces of what some may consider artwork. Can also buy at location. ...  more »

  • Free guided tour on every step of silk making process. Gift shop pricing probably is high but the silk material quality is excellent so do get a few items if you are here. Let's support the local economy.
  • It was amazing watching how the silk was grown harvested and made. Our guide was great. The tour is free and helps you to appreciate why it's priced how it is. So beautiful.
  • Really really cool! The tour is free, and the tour guide was great. We had no idea about the process of manufacturing and weaving silk prior to this, so it was really cool to see the process from the fields of mulberry bushes (which they use to feed the silk worms) right through to seeing the silk being weaved on massive peddled looms. A must see!
  • Took a tuktuk to the farm. Loved loved loved this place. A guide walks you through the farm taking as much time as you like explaining the process start to finish from raising the larvae, to finished textile - and oh my, are the textiles beautiful! Still using traditional methods. Highly recommend!! Only day we could go was a Sunday so only a little work was happening but you didn't miss anything - recommend M-F visit
  • They provide a free shuttle from their shop in Siem Reap to the farm (detailed info on their website). The tour and explanations could be a bitter deeper, longer and in smaller groups. Was quite a rush. Not enough time to see everything if you really want to understand how everything works, e.g. development of patterns, set up weaving loom, how to color the silk... The shop in Siem Reap has more variety and it is quite expensive! But quality is really good and they have a lot of beautiful things. I couldn't resist to get some presents for home ;)
