We took a tuk tuk to visit the silk farm and enjoyed the whole trip. Relaxing ride through the countryside and then a great visit to see the silk process from beginning to end. Very nice shop at the end too.

Well worth a the visit. Fascinating to see how the silk is produced from eggs to silk worms to cocoons to loom to finished product. I now have a deeper appreciation of the beautiful Cambodian silk and the time it takes from start to finish. The guides are very friendly, knowledgeable and professional.

We visited the silk farm, coming by tuk tuk. The guide showed us the silk making process - from the beetle to the threat and from the threat to the end producs. You can buy very nice merchandise there.

I thought I knew a lot about silkworms, but now I know more. The tour guide was knowledgable and spoke good English. The shop has beautiful products.

You can take a free shuttle bus from Artisans Ankor to the Silk farm. It was an interesting process to watch in progress. It gave an insight into the time involved in producing the handwoven silk, providing an appreciation for the expense and better production of handwoven compared to machine woven. Great Shop to buy gifts and silk.

We spent the morning visiting the silk farm and it was nice to see that the whole process is all made by locals and the work is all handmade. Beautiful work that provides lots of families with the opportunity to have a dignified job. Beautiful pieces too at reasonable prices.

The tour is only about 30 minutes long and very interesting. See the development of silk from the worm to the weaving. See how the beautiful colors of the silks are dyed from organic materials. The spinning and weaving of the threads is fascinating. They have a great onsite shop with quality goods. The sale prices are good bargains. The... More

A bit of a trek out of Siemn Reap but interesting when you get there. A free guide takes you around the various rooms telling you about the life of the silkworm and the process of making, dyeing and weaving the silk as you watch the women who work there carrying out the labour intensive and laborious tasks. It really... More

We did this visit as a way to fill in some spare time on our last day in Siam Reap. Really glad we did. It took us a while to get there by tuk-tuk but it was worth it. Our English speaking guide was informative and friendly. We learned the entire process form worm to finished product. Entry was free... More
