We found these places to be touristy and over priced, as well as very high pressure. You are literally followed by a salesperson who relentlessly makes suggestions. Make the effort to go to the markets instead as they are reasonably priced and less pressured.

The Cambodian people has this unique way of passing on to the next generation their craft. The Artisans Angkor is a place where the artisans hone their skills in crafting . It is amazing how delicate statutes are carved , chiseled , and polished . I am truly blessed to have visited this place.

The tour I did was very informative. Young people are trained in their natural craft man ship, wood carving, stone carving, lacquered wood and many more arts. It was good to see the Artisans at work performing their gifted abilities. There is also a fantastic shop to buy the most amazing and beautiful gifts.

The workmanship of the peices here is impeccable. Definitely worth every cent for a genuine, hand carved peice of Cambodia.

A great place to visit to see how things are made and learn how the local people are helped by this organisation. You then have the chance to buy good quality products in the shop.

Top quality items that help disabled individuals when you buy. Be prepared to pay more for the best. I was even able to exchange an item (with itemized receipt) the next day.
