I was able to see the locals weave silk into beautiful clothing in the traditional way. They sold many of their homemade articles of clothing at reasonable prices.

Visited this village on our first visit to Thailand. Quite interesting place except the ladies who were making the silk were in a very out of the way area. We would have missed it but a lady there pointed us in the right direction. Kind...More

There’s no entrance fee. We parked in a small car park and made our way to the front of the gardens where they have a gate and make the silk behind the walls. Enjoy!!
