Amazing for people who want to know about silk. Right from eggs to finished product very well explained with visual props. And its really expensive but you can why it’s expensive because of lots of effort involved in it.

Didn't go into games village. Only visit to silk factory. Very interesting. Well worth the time. I should say 70% of us on the tour bought silk pillows and or dooners . They are great.
