Angkor Silk Farm, Siem Reap, Cambodia

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.20161108_105723
