    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 ;)

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.
