We only found this by reading a report at the Shinta Mani Resort. A $10 Tuk Tuk return (for 2) from Siem Reap. The ride itself is worth the money. We were given a personal tour of the farm which is well set up the explain the whole process of worm to fabric. The showroom is extensivie and my wife... More

The tour was really interesting and informative. A special thanks to our guide who explained us all the process of silk making and was very knowleagable, friendly and patient. Most of our souvenirs come from their shop, even if it is quite expensive you can clearly see the quality of those handmand products. Highly recommanded visit!

Interesting farm visit. I've never seen mulberry leaves or silk worms so I did gain more knowledge on how silk was made. The method to make a silk piece was very intricate and would need someone who has high level of patience and tolerance to complete them. It is no wonder that the price of silk is expensive.

If you hired a tuk-tuk for the day, consider coming to this place after temple hopping. Typically, tuk-tuks will try to get you to go to the floating village which has poor reviews on trip advisor. Get them to come here instead. You will get to see how silk is being made, from the start to finish. The tour is... More

Used our 'regular' tuk tuk guy (Mr Meak - say hi if you use him). Cost ten bucks for return trip from hotel. There is no cost to be shown around, but I think you're expected to give the guide a tip. It was interesting to see how the silk was made right from the eggs on the mulberry leaves... More

I had read about the silk farm before going to Cambodia and was actually looking forward to visiting as much as seeing Angkor. The silk farm is situated about 15km out of the town and is run by Artisans d'Angkor. They run a free shuttle bus from the centre in Siem Reap directly to the farm. We caught it as... More

A visit to the silk farm is a great way to spend a spare half day in Siem Reap between visiting the temples. You see and learn about each step of the silk production which is really interesting. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable about the process and the organisation. The setting is nice and the visit takes you... More

We visited this place in the afternoon. It's very empty then. May be that's the reason why after greeted us at the entry, the guides just point us the way and we just went ahead on our own. Well there're nothing so complex about the place to be guided anyway. From the beginning to the end of the way we... More

Having visited Artisans d'Angkor which we enjoyed so much we were inspired to visit the silk Farm. We were welcomed by a guide who showed us around the farm. We enjoyed seeing how the silk is made - which is amazing. Their work is stunning and the shop is well worth a visit, followed by a rewarding ice cream at... More
