  • Great little place to visit to see how things are made. It is pretty amazing to see the artists at work. The shop has a lot of nice gifts, however they are definitely pricey.
  • Compared to the questionable quality and bad taste shops we went to, Artisans was way over the top as far as quality and design. I have no idea about the comments here on price. People get caught in the 'on the cheap' mindset but this shop is way more than reasonable for what you are purchasing.
  • Mostly a tourist place. The level of artisanship is quite high - all souvenirs pass quality control. Outlets of Artisans d'Angkor are spread now - there is a decent one also at the departure duty free of Siem Reap Airport.
  • Make high quality handicraft from various materials. Their price is also high. They have workshop for visitors to visit for free and also free guiding in many languages. Traveler should buy here as it is 100% made by Khmer artisans.
  • When I first saw my Siem Reap itinerary to include a visit to a craftsmanship workshop, my immediate thoughts were that it’s going to be a touristy activity, designed to cart busloads of unsuspecting tourists to tourist traps and overpriced souvenirs. But I was completely wrong. Artisan Angkor was an eye opener. The business is actually a social rebuilding project established after the civil war by the Cambodian government designed to preserve Cambodian craft heritage such as stone carvings, paintings and silk farming. I was floored by what I witnessed. Young, under privilege Cambodians, many of whom are disabled (deaf) are trained in these skills and provided a job, a dignified way of earning a living. I would encourage anyone visiting Siem Reap to pay them a visit, appreciate their crafts and lend your support with amazingly high-quality products they made a living producing.
