Interesting tuk-tuk ride to the outskirts of the city. Gorgeous Art Gallery, Shop and display of Theam's own private collection of art. We visited on the one day a week when the workshop had no artists working in it - this would have been great to see! Staff very helpful with excellent English.

I wanted to visit Theam's House after seeing the little, boutique shop near FCC (Foreign Correspondents' Club) on the river, as the assistant there explained the range would be wider at the gallery/workshop. It is a little way out of town - still able to take a tuk-tuk, though. The setting is a beautiful home/garden courtyard arrangement that has been... More

We were asked to visit this place - most tours don't take you there but we insisted - the workshop is nice as is the talking bird - Theam's paintings and other artifacts are really worth seeing

Having researched shopping in Siem Reap, Theam's House was on top of my list. However, we were disappointed - we found their prices too high in comparison to their competition. Ended up shopping at Artisans D'Angkor.

A little way out of Siem Reap but well worth a visit - enter through the calm courtyard, sit for a while with a cold drink, and then enjoy the art works within. We came away with a large lacquer elephant, plus some wonderful little 'tchotchkes' - I bought a silk pencil case and my wife a jewellery roll. Prices... More

Siem Reap like many cities has a large stock of arts and crafts to sell to tourists. From night markets, morning markets, alleyways and stalls. Visitors very often want "something" to remind us of that special place or occasion. After a while, you realise that so much of it is the same or imported from somewhere else and not really... More

A unique and special place that will give you an insight in to Cambodian life, determination and finesse in a way that very few things can.

We had visited 6 or 7 tourist trap art galleries before visiting Theam's House. We had seen some beautiful prices, but nothing that jump out as 'the' piece to buy. At Theam's we were spoilt for choice, and found a painting that was perfect. It is a bumpy and dusty ride out to Theam's. We took a tuk tuk, and... More

Very enjoyable experience, a breath of the fresh air in imaginative presentation of art collection. Interesting to see the workshop where original lacquer paintings are created. Lovely ambiance.
