Favourite place to shop in Siem Reap. If you're looking for something more than cheap elephant pants and mass souvenirs from the typical markets, and also want something with a more interesting design twist than the more traditionally minded wares sold at Artisans D'ankor, then Theam's House is for you. It is a beautiful space that functions as a gallery,... More

Theam is the artist whose paintings one may or may not appreciate. But, the shop also has work by other local artisans and those trained by Theam's group. The house/shop is gorgeous and peaceful and can be rented for events

We saw some of works designed by Theam at our hotel and decided to find his gallery. It was a 15 min tuk tuk ride from Park Hyatt. We were glad that we made the short trip! This is an excellent gallery with some very interesting contemporary work. The gallery offers both original work by Theam as well as pieces... More

Take a tuk-tuk and make the time to visit Theam's House. The house itself is beautiful and the garden also. Once you arrive you will be greeted by one of the team (and the talking bird) who takes you around the studio introducing you to Theam's work and studio. We could not leave without one of Theam's little elephants as... More

Had a very hard time choosing which ones to buy as there were so many very beautifully made items, specially, the elephants! Wanted to buy one of each color and material!

Second time around and I made it to see the workshop and artists at work. There are a few new designs since my last trip here. Looking for another gecko and Buddha to add to my collection but did not see anything I like this time. Still enjoyed the visit. Will be back.

Theams Gallery is a little out of town, but, well worth the trip. In a peaceful compound, you first enter the artist's gallery and see his thought provoking canvas' - absolutely stunning.... His works are amazing. Then walk through the workshop to the shop with beautiful lacquered sculptures. I dare you not to purchase a lucky elephant! They are beautiful... More

I went to the Phnom Penh shop where I found so many amazing items. Lacquered elephants (in three sizes) are absolutely lovely and original, several of the lacquered paintings are simply gorgeous, it is an upscale shop with very high quality pieces of artwork and no push to buy. Difficult to go back home without buying anything.
