The tradition of silk weaving is one that has been passed on from generation to generation of women in rural areas in Cambodia. The Angkor Silk Farm is situated around 20 minutes away from Siem Reap’s centre in the Puok district of Cambodia. A part of the organisation known as Artisans D’Angkor, this fascinating farm gives visitors a chance to take a tour of the silk making process including breeding of silk worms, silk extraction, the dyeing process and looming. There is also a gift shop where you can buy a variety of silk products. Travellers heading to the area and looking for centrally located Siem Reap hotels can stay at Alila Sothea, Siem Reap. This luxury Angkor hotel offers elegant accommodation options and is only around 10 minutes from the town centre.
