We came here to learn about the silk of Cambodia. I think the shop's prices were high-I'm not sure if everything they sell is actually made there. I agree with another reviewer that the animals they keep have terrible conditions-sad.
If you like cycling hire a bike in Phnom Penh and take the ferry....makes an interesting half day. You can then cycle around the island easily.
Interesting to see the silk making process. Keeping crocodiles in a confined space is cruel and unnecessary.
Loved everything about the ferry ride and spending time on the beach with the locsls eating a drinking. I like learning at the silk farm but Im still bothered by the poor care of the animals at it. They were cages so small they could...More

A trip to Koh Dach Island is about 1 hour each way from PP Central, including a ferry crossing. It is possible to go by a private car, tuk tuk or a bicycle.
Unlike many artisan villages, this one is still pretty much a home...More
Cross the Tonle Sap river and took a ferry across the Mekong River. Suggest to take a bicycle (if you can bear cycling under the hot sun) or a tuk-tuk from Phnom Penh. First visit should be the village on the island. You can see...More
Everything went well until we saw the animals in super tiny cages, no water and nothing that resembles their natural habitat. Just a concrete floor and a fence. It ruined the whole experience for us. It's not a zoo so there's no reason to have...More

Be careful. when you cross with the boat there are some people who invite you to visit their shop. They sell mostly mercericed cotton scarfs. Of course cheaper then the silk ones on the farm. About USD 20.00 seems to be correct for a silk one on the farm. Discount only if you buy 5 or more. discount 1 USD. Also on the farm the have cheap scarfs. Not wothwile buying. The real silk ones absolutely. Beautyful colors. Next time I buy much more. Before I was home most of them gone to friends who love them.
