This place was fascinating. They take you on a tour of the full life cycle of silkworms and the harvesting process, through to the weaving and finished product. We had our 2nd and 3rd graders along with us, and they had learned some things about silk worms in science and thought it was awesome to see it in real life.... More

They show you the full process of making the silk from the worms to the loom.....so if you haven't seen how silk is made -this will be informative. Excellent place to pick up original hand woven silk (no bargaining) which is government approved. Prices range from 20-50 US$ per meter

It's always fun to see how things are done. The tour was quite nice, and the shop had some great stuff. Don't expect a bargain, but this is the real deal, not the market stall. I bought a nice wallet that I'm still delighted with a month later and that gets compliments. Much better than my old black leather one.

I found this by accident as I was wandering back streets in siem reap town and found artisan ankor, a fantastic social enterprise craft place teaching local unemployed people skills in wood carving, silk painting, lacquering and stone carving. (This place should really have its own listing ad even though it's a demonstration site for their training it's very interesting).... More

This is a small place that is unique in how silk is made. It is free and the guide accepts a donation of whatever you decide. The shop has really cheap silk items for sale after the tour. It is nothing huge but defiantly is interesting. We had a Tuk Tuk driver to take us there to avoid the coaches.

The tour is great - apart from when the silk worms are boiled alive! Put me off a bit (at least it educated me about how silk is made!). The gift shop is extremely expensive and not a lot of affordable things for Aussies on a budget...if you can bring yourself to buy silk after seeing how it's made.

Its a fair way out of town so settle in for a lengthy tuk tuk ride. They give you a free tour of the silk making process from the raising of the caterpillars, the unspinning of the cocoons, the dyeing, and the weaving processes. They have a fantastic store with a huge variety of hand made silk items, however try... More

Our whole family, even our usually fidgety 6-year old, enjoyed the guided tour very much. From the mulberry plantation, to the larvae house, the spinning, dyeing and weaving, everything was explained well and in a most interesting way. We have no particular interest in textiles, but it was very enjoyable to see the whole process of hand made silk. It... More

Entrance is free and guides speak a variety of languages. It is facinating to see the lifecycle of silkworms and how silk comes to live. The shop is excellent although the prices are rather steep.

Although situated 20 minutes away from the city center, the silk farm is well worth a visit, even if you have no natural interest in silk/textiles. The tour is free and a personal guide takes you through the process of silk-making from start to finish. Our guide, Smaye, was fun and knowledgeable and made the 20-30 minute tour an absolute...
