    A wonderful shop where you can find one of the best handmade goods. The quality of the sold items is far away from elsewhere in Siem Reap. The patterns, the colours are a feast for the eyes. Sadly, mo...  more »

    We were so impressed with the skills of the artists and the initiative set up to provide for them. Well worth viewing and supporting by buying some of the amazing items.  more »

    Especially Good for people who haven't seen traditional craft works. Good initiative. showroom is also available which is really good even to browse through

    Visitors can see expert artisans at work in different specialisations: silverware, wood craft, painting etc. There is a display of works shown at different stages of progress. It is a very educative experience and the products seem to be of high quality. But they are expensive. I found their product for sale at a cheaper price at the showroom in Siem Reap airport. It might be a better idea to purchase them there.

    Great showroom for local artisans, but objects for sale were priced for tourists. Loved the working nature of the silk farm and what we learned there, great for our four kids 11-17.

    Once you finish your free and guided tour through the Silk Farm of Artisans Angkor, you will walk away with an understanding and appreciation of silk and silk products! It was a wonderful experience to satisfy the curiosity inside of you. Our tour guide was great, thoughtful of our route and very knowledgeable about every piece of this simple, yet complex process! The social and economic impact that Artisans Angkor is having on the community is something to be proud of. You get to witness the factory in full operation as you move through your tour. You end at their showroom where you can purchase these handmade products (no pressure), and be prepared to be faced with many wonderful options! Definitely a must do while in Siem Riep.

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.
