Really interesting and well-designed tour. You will learn about the process of silk-making, and get to see the production underway. An amazing opportunity to see clothing and cloth being made. Informative, and the gift shop is amazing. The Blue Pumpkin Stand outside is a welcome treat especially if it's been hot. you can get a nice cold drink or even... More

The silk farm was 20 minutes from Siem Reap but there are 2 free daily shuttle buses. We hired a driver from our hotel which was very reasonably priced. The free 30 minute guided tour was very informative describing mulberry tree cultivation, silkworm growing, cocoon unreeling, and silk weaving. The gift shop was exquisite silk scarves, ties, clothes, and ceramics.... More

Very interesting and was amazed by the worker of the silk weaving skills. Pattern and color matching were so nice! Worth for a visit, i take no tour and just walk around by myself that took me an hour there. Things in the souvenir shop however were too pricey for us.

Angkor silk farm is small, but very facinating. The guides are there ready to show you around the farm and workshop. You get to see the silk worms at different stages and how the silk is made. There is no entrance fee, it is however engouraged to tip your guide. They have a free shuttle bus, or you could go... More

Ever wondered where silk comes from and how it is made into a fabric? This silk farm is excellent to get an insight into silk weaving. It is great for kids and adults. The guides are very knowledgeable and provide adequate information. They only take tips, no entry ticket or guide fee.

It was a most informative experience where we acquired considerable information relating to the production of silk. It is also relevant that a free shuttle service is provided with pick up from the Hotel and there was no entrance fee.

We were delighted to see this farm and learn about the production of silk. We felt like we were supporting a local enterprise that has great significance given the history of silk in the area. The people who work at the farm (not sure farm is the best description) are informative and pleased to invite tourists to see their work.
