Description

VISIT OUR SILK FARM, located just 20 minutes from Siem Reap downtown and take advantage of the trip to enjoy a refreshing sight of the Cambodian lush scenery with the view of the vast and green paddy fields, the traditional stilted wooden houses, under the gaze of dozens of cows!

While at the Angkor Silk Farm, you will find out a hidden treasure: a delightful quiet place surrounded by five hectares of mulberry trees plantations where the whole traditional process which gives birth to silk is displayed and explained by one of our smiling Cambodian guide who will welcome you and will offer you a free guided tour around the different workshops between which you will peacefully walk through small alleys all covered by greenery.

During the visit, you will discover the complex process which starts with mulberry trees cultivation to enable silkworm farming; silkworm which will grow into cocoons that will then become silk threads… The visit will then continue with the wonder of our talented artisans working so meticulously with those threads to turn them into splendid silk fabrics.

To visit the Silk Farm, you can use our free shuttle service.
The shuttle departs daily (including Saturday and Sunday) from our Siem Reap workshops at 9:30 am and 1.30 pm.
