This is an interesting place to see where silk comes from, how it is made and to learn the basics about what goes into finished products. You can see them make a comforter during your tour. As far as buying that is the next part...More
I read the reviews on this website and as the reviews were positive, I concluded this was a reliable shop to buy 100% quality silk pyjamas. I bought 6 pairs of what I thought was their best quality pjs. The brand was ASILK. They refused...More
I realize this is part of the tour to get you to shop, but that is part of the fun. Totally loved learning how silk is processed, and the only stop on our tour that I wished we'd had more time. The best pillow I've...More

The actual process of the making a silk doona was intriguing and I loved the hands on experience. The silk pillow was a good buy and having the doona and pillow delivered to our hotel the night before we left meant we did not have...More

in the middle of a huge city you can see quite in details the traditional (ok, a bit modernised) production of silk, including silkworms at different stages of development; get involved into stretching the silk from a small "silk ball" (can only be performed in...More
