A free activity in Siem Reap.
The Angkor Silk farm offers free guided tours. Situated about 20 minutes from the centre of Siem Reap, they also provide a free shuttle bus departing everyday from Artisans Angkor in Siem Reap at 9.30am and 1.30pm.
During my visit I learned about:
- silkworm farming,
- cocoon unwinding,
- preparation of the silk threads,
- tie-dyeing of the threads,
- and silk weaving.
The Angkor Silk Farm also features a showroom where you can buy quality silk products that were made in the workshops you just visited. There is a restaurant on site.
