Thankfully the showroom had air conditioning! One of the few places in Siem Reap with air con. I will have a greater appreciation for artworks I see from now now. Viewing the process was informative and always happy to support businesses that support the disadvantaged. Paying US $ 2 is a fair price to get there by tuk tuk from... More

Really impressed that they are focusing on people gaining traditional skills and knowledge. This is often forgotten in the rush to modernisation. This is an excellent business model for many countries. Impressed at the number of people working there and learning skills. The tour to the Silk Farm is a must and the best we did in our time visiting... More

I really enjoyed watching the carving, weaving, painting, silver dip and many other art forms in progress. The centre and grounds are gorgeous and tour is by donation. Gift shop is beautiful and proceeds support the revival of Khmer traditional arts through fair wages for artists and other programs. I wish I had found this sooner and allowed time to... More

Interesting visit to the workshops of Artisans d'Angkor. We just passed by and got a free guided tour of all the workshops (stone and wood carving, silver, painting,...) which was great to see, for us and the children. Off course you can buy something in the shop at the end of the tour, but they were never pushy about it.... More

If you come to Siem... More

A really good place to browse and see the products being made to old methods. The gift shop at the end is reasonably priced and keeps lots of Cambodians in a job.

Nice place, pleasure to observe the skilled artisans creating wonderful products. Bit overrated and overpriced; sure the quality is good. Not convincing numbers about your spend being ploughed back to the artisan community of Cambodia. Spending about US$ 50- 70 is reasonable. About 60-90 minutes tour is sufficient.
